We nominated three awardees, Otunba Kehinde Oloyede, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya  (MC Oluomo), we are glad to inform you (Kendoo) that you won the Lagos State Humanitarian Award of the year. We have presented others theirs but you were not around at the award day, that is why we deemed it fit to present this to you today  in your office.”

Responding, Kendoo stated that it was the entire people of the local government that won the award.


He reiterated that the award will further spur him to do more for the people and humanity in general.

“Thank you for recognizing our efforts in making life better for our people through provision of infrastructures.
