Queen Elizabeth II was dutiful – Sanwo-Olu

Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State says the late Queen Elizabeth II will be remembered for being dutiful and transforming lives in the entire commonwealth communities.

Sanwo-Olu said this on the sidelines of the service of commemoration for the late Queen, which was held at the Ikoyi residence of the Deputy British High Commissioner, on Wednesday.

He said the queen was humble and served the people with dignity.

“The livelihood of the queen was one with humility, dignity and a lot of grace as she was very dutiful in all she did in her years of service.

“I never met the queen personally but watching from afar, and you can see a woman of grace that built bridges and transformed lives in the entire commonwealth community.

“She made the UK government stronger and bigger than what it is now, having handed over to over 15 prime ministers and visited over 117 countries, including Nigeria.

“I doubt if we would get a monarch like her because her credentials would be difficult for future queens and kings to emulate,” he said.

The governor said, “the king has big shoes to fill, and I wish him the very best”, adding that It would be difficult in this present generation to have another queen, NAN reports.
