Even if we hadn’t seen this wonderful video of Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode engaging veteran table tennis player Funke Oshinaike in a game, he would likely still be retaining his #1 spot, due to a week that has seen a flurry of activity including more moves in the plans to phase Danfo buses out of Lagos, and the announcement that the state government is ready to take over the National Stadium (which really wouldn’t be such a bad thing.)
Elsewhere, Governor Aregbesola of Osun State vaults back into the top 20, seeing an accumulation of good press including the Osun State Ofada rice unveiling and the contributory pension scheme implementation, for which Osun state ranks behind Lagos and Rivers alone.
Governor Rotimi Akeredolu also retains his #10 position as he gets off to a strong start, announcing that he plans to forfeit salaries until workers in his state are paid as well as moving to ban logging in Ondo State in a bid to fight deforestation.
