Governor Ambode, who spoke when he received Fashola and some top officials of the Ministry on a courtesy visit at the Lagos House, Ikeja, described the visit as historic, adding that it was gratifying to receive the Minister for the first time at the Lagos House, Ikeja since he left office on May 29, 2015.
He said: “On behalf of the people of Lagos State, I would like to wholeheartedly welcome Mr. Babatunde Fashola, my predecessor and now Minister for Works, Power and Housing and especially back to the Alausa office where he actually left about 22 months ago.
“I want to say that this is a historic moment for us, notwithstanding that the Honourable Minister lives in Lagos, this is the first time he is stepping his feet into the Alausa premises and we need to honour him for that and say a big thank you for coming back home.”
Governor Ambode also lauded Fashola for serving the State meritoriously, saying that his administration improved on the template already laid down during the previous administration.
“We want to say that whatever it is that we have done in the last 22 months is just more or less a fall out of the great achievements the former governor had already put in place.
“We have decided that we would carry on with a sense of continuity in all the things that have been done. I had always said that what we wanted was this continuity of the last 18 years, but continuity with improvement and we are happy that all that has been done in the last 22 months is just a continuation of the template the former Governor left behind.
“We are happy that the sense of collaboration that we have expressed here is what we believe can carry whatever it is that Lagos stands for, moving forward. As you may be aware, Lagos is celebrating its 50 years of existence this year.
“The last 18 years has been so dramatic and historic in terms of the growth and development that we have seen in Lagos, commencing from 1999 when Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu came into office and the eight good years spent by you and the two years we have done. So, obviously, there is a remarkable change between 1999 and now,” Ambode said.

"ObamaCare will explode and we will all get together and piece together a great healthcare plan for THE PEOPLE," Trump said in a tweet. "Do not worry!"
Trump did not elaborate on why Americans should not worry when former President Obama's signature healthcare legislation "explodes" or how a new plan would be pieced together.
Trump is expected to lay low in Washington, D.C., this weekend in contrast to his frequent visits to sunny Florida on Saturdays and Sundays. The president also urged his devoted Twitter following to tune in to Fox News on Sunday night.
Trump said on Friday after the healthcare bill vote was scrapped that he is now looking to move on to tax
Some Google Pixel users have been complaining about a bug with their devices where the Bluetooth would switch off on its own and if you switched it back on it could switch off again.

Trump 'Is Furious That Jared & Ivanka Chose To Go On Vacation While The GOP Health Care Bill Imploded'
A source close to the president told CNN the president 'is upset that his son-in-law and senior adviser was not around during this crucial week.'
Ivanka and Jared enjoyed a fun-filled time shopping and skiing in Aspen as GOP support for the bill to repeal and replace Obamacare dwindled.
On Thursday, Ivanka and Jared were spotted taking a carefree stroll away from the White House chaos with their children in Aspen.
Also on Thursday, the scheduled vote for health care reform was set back another day because of lack of support.
As Jared Kushner pushed son Joseph down the Aspen slopes Friday, President Trump was attempting to push GOP representatives into voting for the new health bill the day after the anniversary of the Affordable Care Act.
Speaker Paul Ryan pulled the collapsing bill from the House floor on Friday.
A panicked Kylie is stuck in traffic miles away when she gets the alert, so phones mum Kris, worried any intruder may harm her beloved dog Norman. “They said there are motion detectors, break ins, glass breaking, all in the master bedroom. Normy! What if they do something to Norman?!’ screams Kylie.
Kris, who is at home, tries to stop Kylie worrying, saying she’s sent boyfriend Corey Gamble around to check out just what is happening. “They aren’t going to do anything to your dogs, calm down. I’ll take care of it. Kylie, honey, everything is going to be okay.”
After Kylie rings off, Kris speaks directly to Corey, who is still a few minutes away from the house. She tells him it’s easier if she pops round to Kylie’s house as she’s closer, but Corey won’t let her.
"No, you can't even protect yourself. Let me deal with it,” says Corey.
“Listen, she is safe. She is not home. It will be issues with the alarm system, but just in case it’s not, you stay at home safely because I'm the one that knows how to defend myself.
“You do not, so let me handle it."
But an agitated Kris tells Corey he doesn’t understand as it’s not his child, warning if he doesn’t get to the house within the next four minutes then she’ll go herself.
Corey says Kris isn’t thinking logically and needs to chill out, but she fires back: “Don't tell me to chill out! You can't tell somebody when they're having a panic attack to chill out!"
I never knew we could be close; never expected to weep for a friend who turned out to be a buddy. A guy who held no grudge, malice or hate in his good heart against another.
Today, he’s no more. His bit is done here on earth. I will always remember him. A guy I have worked so closely with in almost 10 months. Suddenly he disappear from my life. Death, O death, why?
He woke up this morning hale and hearty. He had breakfast at a friend’s and was on his way to the office. As he was driving down in the friend’s car he received phone call from home about some happenings, there he lost his cool.
Afterwards, the friend asked him to calm down no matter what but it was too late. My buddy, the one I call CBN, his initials, suddenly developed stroke, throwing up non stop in the friend’s car.
Praying fervently for him, our friend made a turn and drove on neck break speed to his house where he picked his wife and rushed him to the hospital where he was admitted but later referred to to LASUTH in Ikeja.
On getting to LASUTH, the wife was told the hospital could not admit him for lack of bed space. For almost 5 hours my buddy was hanging on to dear life without treatment. How callous can some medical personnel be! An emergency case was treated with so much nonchalance.
So much grief, sorrow, and tears in his home. CBN left behind a young wife and 5 lovely kids. I pray God to give the family the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.
A Chelsea fan or better still, a lover of good football who doesn’t spare Arsenal and it’s gaffer when they slip in any match. A pal who has tried severally to convert me into being a member of the ‘blues’ family. So this great guy won’t be there to yab me week in week out about my dear own Arsenal.
Perpetual light shine upon him O’ Lord.
I shall truly miss you CBN. Sleep in the bosom of the Lord.
The Xiaomi Mi 6 has been frequenting the rumor mill for quite some time now, but this is only the second time we are hearing of a Plus variant. It popped up in a new specs sheet leak, with at least one pretty interesting features to its name - a dual-camera setup. The specs summary also mentions a 5.7-inch display, putting the alleged Mi 6 Plus squarely in phablet territory. However, despite growing in size, the panel sticks with 1080p resolution - definitely the more endurance-friendly option, if nothing else. The source also suggests all Plus units will be equipped with 6GB or...
Our correspondent, who was a witness, observed the excitement that greeted the incident as many of the residents rushed outside to catch a glimpse of the rare occurrence. The rain lasted for barely 40 mins.
Ireoluwa Akinyemi, a fresh graduate of EKSU said it was a refreshed experience for him.
“I have not seen snow in this magnitude before, I’m really excited. It is a lovely experience.”
Another neighbour, Kemi Fadairo, said the size of the snow was the biggest she had seen.
“I have been seeing snows fall but these are the biggest I have seen,” she said.
The rain started by stoning doors with the snow, first causing apprehension among residents, who peeped through their windows to observe if it was an intruder.
“We thought it was somebody playing pranks, so we peeped through the window to see who it was to know whether to shout for help.
“It was then we discovered it was snow falling from the sky and hitting the door hard. I also joined in taking photographs,” said Olawale Hafeez, a Laboratory Technologist.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Justice Umar Sifawa, gave the order in a ruling on a motion filed by the National Vice Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), North-West, Alhaji Inuwa Abdulkadir.
Abdulkadir had dragged Danbaba, the grandson of the late Premier of Northern Nigeria, Sir Ahmadu Bello, to court for alleged defamation of character. He alleged that Danbaba had in a publication in August, 2016, described his late father as a ” slave bought by one Gwaggo, for two shillings”.
The complainant had told the court that Danbaba said that he (Abdulkadir) did not take adequate care of his late mother.
The respondent had filed a notice of appeal on the ground that the court had erred by issuing a summon on March 13 and March 22, giving him only two days to appear before it for his defence.
The motion on notice filed by Danbaba’s counsel, Prof. Yusuf Dankofa, also said the court breached the appellant’s right to fair hearing and fair trial.
This, he averred, was in violation of section 36 ( 6) ( B), of the Constitution that states,” every person charged with a criminal offence shall be entitled to be given adequate time and facility for the preparation of the defence”.
Danbaba had also filed a motion on notice praying for the stay of the court’s proceedings, pending the determination of his appeal at the State High Court.
The counsel to the complainant, Mr John Shaka, on Friday urged the court to strike out both the respondent’s motion on notice and notice of appeal.
Shaka had also prayed the court to order the Inspector-General of Police to arrest and produce the respondent before the court.
The counsel to the respondent was, however, not in court on Friday.
In his ruling, Sifawa refused to grant the prayers of the complainant to strike out the respondent’s motion on notice and notice of appeal.
The Judge said,” it is premature to do so as the accused should be given another chance to present his case, if he wishes to do so”.
Sifawa, however, granted, in part, the prayer seeking the issuance of an order to the IGP for the arrest and production of Danbaba.
He said:” This is to the effect that a bench warrant shall be issued immediately for the arrest and production of accused before the court.
”But, the order is to the CP of Sokoto State and not the IGP as applied for, to arrest the accused wherever he is found in Nigeria, pending further instructions by the court.”
