The first Military Governor of Lagos State, Brigadier Mobolaji Johnson has passed on.
Johnson died on Wednesday after a brief illness at the age of 83.
Current Governor of the state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, in a condolence message signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile, described the late Gen. Johnson as a complete gentleman and officer.
“A dedicated Lagosian. General Johnson contributed immensely to the development of Lagos state in particular and the nation in general
“Although General Mobolaji Johnson has gone to be with his Lord and Creator, the memories of great accomplishments he left behind will linger on forever.
“One remembers how the late General Johnson’s administration worked with other seasoned professionals to establish five Government Colleges and Housing Estates, which were commissioned by the then Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon, within one year of his administration. This, to me, is the hallmark of service and has remained a benchmark for successive administrations in the state.
“We must ensure that the people enjoy the dividend of democracy. Development must touch the lives of the people directly. This is the best way to immortalise the late Mobolaji Johnson because this is virtue he lived for.
“On behalf of the Government and people of Lagos state, I want to express my sincere and heartfelt condolences to the family of late Brigadier General Mobolaji Johnson,” the message read.
As Military Governor of Lagos State, Johnson was in office between May 28, 1967 and July 1975, under the military regime of General Yakubu Gowon.
