The latest YNaija Governors Effectiveness Ranking sees Governor Akinwunmi Ambode clinch the top spot from Anambra State Governor Willie Obiano. Ambode’s commitment to the Code Lagos programme gave him the edge this week, in light of the announcement of plans to set up 500 training centres across the state. This, combined with the success of the Lagos marathon, and the exemplary conduct of the Lagos State police during the #IStandWithNigeria protests, sealed the deal for him this week.
Governors Ajimobi and Aregbesola retain their positions at the bottom of the list as LAUTECH remains closed.
So, from best to worst, we bring you the latest YNaija effectiveness ranking.
