The Lagos State Governor has assured Lagosians that despite the economic downturn, there will be job opportunities for Lagosians this year 2016.
He said “I am aware that 2016 will also bring economic challenges due to pressures of dwindling revenue from the centre, but Lagos has always been resilient and must consolidate on its self-reliance to ensure it survives any inclement economic weather”.
Governor Ambode added that “Under my administration, the year 2016 holds great promise for all Lagosians through improved security, creation of job opportunities and greater attention to positive infrastructure development”.
The Governor who said his administration will pursue greater channels that will engage the youths of Lagos State, called on Lagosians to support him in his quest to make Lagos safe, clean and secure.
He stated that the N25billion Employment Trust Fund, an initiative of his administration, would take off this year, expressing optimism that it would help the youths to set up their businesses there by creating more jobs.
“Also massive investment in education, health, entertainment, sports and tourism to effectively develop and engage the youths will also commence this year 2016” he said.
