A statement issued by the State Commissioner for Information
and Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde, stated that this is the first time in about
15years that a sitting President will be visiting the State on a working visit
and is a testimony to the landmark achievements in the last one year of
Governor Akinwunmi Ambode as well as the good working relationship between
Lagos State and the Federal Government.
 Ayorinde added that President Buhari during the visit, would formally commission the
Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) Rescue Unit in Cappa Oshodi
built by the State Government to ensure prompt and swift response to emergency
situations in the State.
He said the President would thereafter commission the newly constructed Ago
Palace Way in Okota, Isolo after which he will pay homage to the Oba of Lagos,
His Royal Majesty, Oba Babatunde Rilwanu Aremu Akiolu at the Iga Iduganran,
Lagos Island.
The Commissioner disclosed further that the President would later in the day be
hosted to a reception rally by the State Government at the Tafawa Balewa
Square, (TBS) Lagos where he will also commission and hand over security
equipment and vehicles contributed by the Governor Akinwunmi Ambode-led
administration to securities agencies to beef up security in the state.
The release added that activities for the first day of the President’s visit
would be rounded up with a State Banquet in his honour at the Eko Hotels and
Suites, Victoria Island.
The President will on Tuesday participate as the Special Guest of
Honour at a breakfast session with Corporate Lagos to be hosted by Governor
Ambode at the Lagos State House, Marina, after which he will have a short
session with the public service at the State House, Alausa-Ikeja.
The Commissioner quoted Governor Akinwunmi Ambode as being joyous over this
landmark presidential visit to the State that contributed so much to his
emergence as the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
He added that Lagosians are looking forward with excitement to receive the
President in the State, just as he urged residents to bear with law enforcement
agents and traffic control authorities who will effect road diversions in some
of the routes that the President motorcade will pass through during the visit.
