Lateef Jakande: Former Lagos governor dies at 91

Former Governor of Lagos State, Lateef Jakande, is dead.

He died on Thursday. He was 91 years old.

Jakande, aka “Baba Kekere,” brought a lot of development to Lagos as governor between October 1, 1979 and December 31, 1983.

The developments were in line with the five cardinal programmes of the Unity Party of Nigeria (UPN) founded by a former Premier of the Western Region, Obafemi Awolowo.

Jakande is regarded in many quarters as the best governor Lagos has ever had.
