First democratically elected Governor of Lagos State, Alhaji Lateef Jakande, is dead.
The former Minister of Works passed on Thursday morning in Lagos at the age of 91.
He is a former journalist who became governor of Lagos State in Nigeria from 1979 to 1983, and later was Minister of Works under the Sani Abacha military regime (1993–98).
His administration as governor of Lagos state is still revered for the massive infrastructural development recorded during his four-year stint especially the numerous Jakande Estates built across many local governments in the State as well as sterling investment in schools.
