Winner of the 2016 Spelling Bee Competition, Master Olaseinde Olufemi Joshua has narrated how his father, Mr. Olaseinde missed the meeting with Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode and members of the State Executive Council.

Joshua, a student of Shasha Community Senior High School in Alimosho area of Lagos, who spoke at the Lagos House in Ikeja while being hosted as the 16th One-day Governor of the State, said his father would have loved to be present at the event but was unable to attend due to some health challenges. Besides, Joshua described Governor Ambode as the most labour-friendly Governor in Nigeria.

He said despite the dwindling allocation from the Federal Government, the Governor has remained committed to the prompt payment of workers salary. Responding, Ambode ordered that Joshua’s father be treated at the medical facilities of the State Government. Besides, Joshua was given a laptop, printer and generating set courtesy of the Governor’s Office while other winners of the competition were given tab each.
