”Prior to May 29, Sanwo-Olu will deliver Children’s Day address on May 27, which coincides with the 53rd anniversary of the state,” he said.

The commissioner said that the anniversary events would not be held elaborately, in order to reflect the realities and challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

”The governor, however, considers it essential to render an account of his service to Lagosians since he was voted into office a year ago,” Omotosho said.

The commissioner said that in the next few days, the anniversary programmes would begin at the J.J.T Park in Alausa, with press briefings by some members of the state executive council.

He said that commissioners and special advisers would present their scorecards in tandem with the six pillars of the state’s T.H.E.M.E.S Agenda.
