Now the Murtala Mohammed international Airport has a befitting road leading to it as Governor Ambode gets set to commission the 10 lane edifice.

It's one thing to start a project in Nigeria as a state government, and another thing to complete that project successfully. Given the present economic bleakness, many states are soft pedaling on major projects, especially considering that some governors are on their way out.

It would appear however that the work ethics of some govs are to remain executive until the final whistle. Such a gov would appear to be Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos state.

Dele Momodu who is a popular Nigerian publisher, businessman, philanthropist, motivational speaker and also the CEO of Ovation International (an entertainment magazine that routine documents the lives of the rich and powerful all over the world.) took to his twitter page to appreciate Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos for his hard work in putting the international airport at its best, through the construction of a 10-lane road leading to the international gateway.  Hear him:

“As received... The Murtala Muhammed International Airport Road now has ten beautiful lanes with glittering lights... Kudos to Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State…”

In the video Dele Momodu shared on his page, one can see the lovely street lights along the airport road as his car ran smoothly on the free road. The airport road has been undergoing construction for very long and this has given many users cause for great concern. It's a welcomed sight to finally see the finished work.

The video the businessman posted online sparked positive reaction as people were praising the Lagos state governor for keeping to his campaign promises.

Governor Akinwunmi Ambode is the outgoing governor of Lagos state having lost his party’s ticket to contest as gubernatorial candidate in the just concluded elections. The governor has completed strategic projects in his tenure including the Oshodi interchange.
