Lagos State: My Life of Service with Integrity

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


‘Lagos State – My Life of Service with Integrity’ is a story that reveals the results of character building. Despite his initial setbacks, Brigadier-General Johnson rose to become one of the most loyal and respected leaders of Nigeria. This entertaining autobiography provides a mixture of both funny moments, and the serious side to the life of this officer and a gentleman who operated with loyalty, integrity and discipline.
You will discover how Lagos State came into being, and how with a start-up £10,000 Federal Government grant, recorded significant achievements during the tenure of Brigadier-General Johnson. You are also provided with insight into the leadership of the country during the period that the greatest accomplishments recorded to date were attained. You will learn a lot about the history of Nigeria, such as some of the events that preceded the military coup d’états and the Nigerian Civil War.
At the end of each chapter of this autobiography are the iconic principles. These highlight the values that can be imbibed from the life of Brigadier-General Johnson.

Brigadier-General Mobolaji Olufunso Johnson (Rtd.) is a man of high intelligence, integrity and strong character. After his training as an officer at the prestigious and sought after Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, England, he returned to Nigeria to serve his dear country. As the first Governor of Lagos State in Nigeria, a position he held for eight years, his administration was of such excellence that Lagos State became, and still is, a pace setter for the rest of the country in many respects. When his administration was brought to an abrupt end by a military coup d’état, he was one of two governors, out of the then twelve governors that were purportedly investigated, that got a clean slate; that is, no corruption charges were found against him.

He continues to serve the country and his people and still lives in the Lagos that he helped to build and develop significantly. He has been married to his dear wife, Funmi for almost five decades, and they are blessed with wonderful children and grandchildren.
