Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has renamed the Onikan Stadium after the state first Military Administrator, Brigadier Mobolaji Olufunso Johnson (Rtd).
Sanwo-Olu made this known on Tuesday while speaking at the Day of Tribute for the late Johnson at the newly reconstructed Onikan Stadium.
The Lagos State governor stated that Onikan would now be called ‘Mobolaji Olufunso Johnson Stadium’ in honour of the military administrator.
Sanwo-Olu described the late Johnson as a distinguished man, a great patriot and an accomplished administrator who re-engineered the modern Lagos.
According to the Lagos State governor, Johnson, though a soldier, never ruled with an iron hand.
Sanwo-Olu said the former administrator was a great man with many parts, saying that the scope of his accomplishment was great.
“He was always willing to offer the right counsel. He was a regular feature of most of the ground-breaking events in Lagos State. his indelible reward for service remained intact and without blame. The projects he executed are still visible today,” he said.
