Ambode orders removal of ‘Lagos, My Success Story’ portraits from Lagos streets

If the information getting to us is anything to go by, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State may have ordered the removal of all the portraits of achievers in Lagos state displayed on major roads in the state in commemoration of its  50th anniversary due to barrage of criticism that followed the display.
Many have argued against the exclusion of some prominent Nigerians  who have equally made their success in Lagos.

A phone call and text message to Mr Steve Ayorinde, the state commissioner for information and strategy, to the reason for the removal of the portraits was not responded to…
