George said: “I have never met this young man, but I must say that I am impressed with his performance so far, especially in the area of infrastructural developments."
“I don’t know everywhere in Lagos because I hardly go round, but I must sincerely commend him on what he is doing in Epe Local Government. I am very proud of what he is doing there.
“I passed through Epe recently and I thought I was in a different state. I want to appeal to him that when he is done with Epe, he should head back to my local government, which is Lagos Island, so that when he leaves office, not only will Epe people remember him for his performance, but the entire Lagos will remember him and say: ‘Yes, there was one Governor that passed through here and his name is Akinwunmi Ambode.”
“I also must commend him in the area of traffic management, especially in the area of traffic decongestion in the state.”
He however added that PDP will do better than Governor Ambode when they get a chance at power.

“My advice to him is that he should ensure that the standards of living of Lagosians are improved, especially in the areas of education and healthcare. I must commend him because it is not easy governing a state like Lagos. Lagos is like the New York of the United States.”
Meanwhile, Governor Ambode has approved the use of uniform, name tags and badges for Lagos state bus conductors.
