On Thursday afternoon, the information came in that Lagos State has lost a great icon who is the former Governor of Lagos State, Lateef Jakande. With that, Seyi Jakande, the son of Lateef Jakande has revealed the last moments of his father after Governor Sanwo-Olu announced Lateef Jakande’s death to Lagosians on his social media page.
Governor of Lagos State, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu earlier today disclosed that former Governor of Lagos State, Lateef Jakande is now dead. With that, Lateef Jakande has now decided to say a lot of things about his father as he also described the way his father died. LotsOfEntertainment (LOE) learned about this statement of Seyi Jakande from The Nation Newspapers.
Seyi Makande speaking on his father’s death and his past life, he said in his words,
“He was not sick. In fact, he completed his APC registration exercise on Wednesday. Usually, my dad returns to sleep after breakfast and so, when he finished taking his breakfast (pap), he went back to sleep.
“It was around 11 am that an aide checked on him and discovered he wasn’t breathing. We called a doctor, and it was confirmed that he passed on. He died in his sleep. He was full of life. He was caring and made sure that everyone is okay.
“My dad’s only regret is the fact that Nigeria is the way it is despite all the resources. There was no sign that anything was going to happen to him. He sleeps more and after breakfast, he goes back to sleep and wakes up for lunch.
“He is fond of reading newspapers. He never gets tired of reading. Baba’s idea of governance is totally different from what is obtained today. Dad was a selfless leader. He is somebody that believes in service to humanity. He displayed that throughout his life.
“He did everything he could possibly do in every capacity to help others. He lived in the Lagos of his dreams. He was the Governor of Lagos State from 1979-1983. He did his best in that capacity and like he always said, everything is by the grace of the Almighty Allah not by his power.”
