As the celebrations of the 2017 Community Day ends on a bright note with the grand finale graced by the Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwumi Ambode, he assured that the year 2018 would be a better and that residents and investors.
Speaking at the event which held at the Adeyemi Bero Auditorium in Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos Mainland, with the theme: “Community Affinity: Aligning Lagos Communities With Private Sector,” Ambode said much has been done through implementation of various projects and initiatives by his administration across the communities, but a lot more would be done to truly transform and secure the future of the State.
“Year 2018 is going to be a better year for Lagos. It is a year we hope to achieve phenomenal increase in the State’s ability to sustain itself by persuading more people to share in the burden of the transformation going on across the State.
“You are all witnesses to the modest projects our administration has executed such as the reconstruction of Airport Road, Light Up Lagos, the Oshodi Transport Interchange, the Abule Egba and Ajah bridges, the ongoing Agege flyover, waterways channelization and construction of jetties, the Ikeja Bus Terminal, the Badagry Marina and the massive deployment of security personnel and equipment across the State.”
The Governor added that: “What you have not seen, but which is on the way is the implementation of the embedded power project which will bring electricity to every home in Lagos. You have also not seen the reforms which we are going to execute in the transport sector which will ease connectivity across the State.
“With your support through the performance of your obligations, we can safely commit ourselves in the conviction that by the end of Y2018, our communities will be better with more youths gainfully employed and small businesses growing. With a home to return to and a community to live in, our dream of a more secure and prosperous State will be another Nigerian wonder,” he said.
