Alhaji Jakande was a patriot, he was a man who valued quality education at all levels, his contribution to good governance in our Nation will forever linger on.
We sympathize with the Lagos State Government, Family, and beloved ones for the irreparable loss.
We pray to God In His infinite mercy to forgive his shortcomings and grant him eternal rest.
