The Lagos State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Steve Ayorinde has said that Governor Akinwunmi Ambode will surpass his predecessor, Babatunde Fashola by his policies and achievements.

Mr Ayorinde also said that there is no need to compare Ambode’s government with Fashola’s.

“You can’t compare an eight-month old administration with an eight-year old administration,” the Commissioner said during an appearance on Frankly Speaking with Jola Sotubo.

“And you will recall that when His Excellency, Governor Babatunde Fashola came, the same thing was said at the initial period that “Will he be like Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, his own predecessor”.

“In one year… we’ll shake off all these comparisons that are needless because what the governor is concerned about is to continue with the good work that his predecessor started and to focus on what Lagosians want and people are beginning to see.

“…He’s continuing what governor Fashola left in terms of security of lives and property, he has taken it further… that’s an eloquent testimony that this is continuity with improvement.

“…His [Ambode’s] own style and his own personality will be obvious to Lagosians… and without a doubt, part of what he is elected to do is actually to surpass his predecessor so that Lagosians can benefit more,” he added.

The commissioner was responding to a question on how Governor Ambode intends to shake off Fashola’s shadow and stop the constant comparison of both governments.
