The governor added that Johnson although a soldier, but was never authoritarian and never ruled with an iron hand but instead he ruled with a compassionate mind.
Mr Sanw-olu further added that Mobolaji Johnson was a man with great foresight and a symbol of humility, fairness and justice and that he was in constant support of successive governments of Lagos State.
“He was always willing to offer the right counsel. He was a regular feature of most of the ground-breaking events in Lagos State. his indelible reward for service remained intact and without blame. The projects he executed are still visible today,” he said.
