2018 Spelling Bee Winner, Gloria Ajala Appointed as Lagos Governor for One Day
Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu, the wife of Lagos State governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, received Gloria Ajala, a one-day governor, at the Lagos House in Marina on Friday.
By winning the 2018 Spelling Bee Competition, Ajala became a one-day Lagos governor. Mrs Sanwo-Olu welcomed Ajala and her cabinet members to the Lagos House for a courtesy visit.
The governor’s wife, in a tweet about the visit, said:
“The courtesy visit culminated the week-long activities to celebrate the winners as they earlier took a tour of Lagos House, Alausa, Ikeja and the Presidential Lodge, Marina, known as the Parliament, Marina built during British colonial time, while a Dinner was also held for them.
“Beyond the gifts presented to the winners, the significance of the hosting of the students is such that hard work and perseverance will pay off in the long run.
“The Spelling Bee Competition began about 20 years ago essentially to celebrate educational excellence of our children, and it is gratifying that the initiative has been sustained to continue to serve as a platform to spur the younger ones to choose the path of academic excellence”.
