Outgoing Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode on Monday visited President Muhammadu Buhari at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, saying he was now more of a politician than technocrat.
He said he had grown wiser politically, having spent four years in office.
PUNCH reports that Ambode was at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, to pay what he called, ‘Thank you visit’ to President Buhari.
Buhari had visited Lagos last month to inaugurate some projects initiated by the Ambode administration.
Ambode had lost his re-election bid after he failed to win the gubernatorial primaries of his party, the ruling All Progressives Congress, in Lagos State last year.
Political forces in Lagos State were said to have opted for the eventual winner, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, who went ahead to win the governorship election last March.
Responding to a question on lessons he learnt in office, Ambode stated, “You see, every politician learns every day.
“The fact remains that I came in as a technocrat, so I used to call myself a techno-politician. But I think I am wiser.
“I am more of a politician than a technocrat now.”
