Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, has assured residents of Lagos that he will fulfill the electoral promises he made to the people, especially in the areas of infrastructural renewal.
The governor, who spoke at the 2015 Ojude Oba Epe Festival held at the Epe Recreation Ground, Epe, said the infrastructural renewal drive of the previous administration in the state would receive adequate attention in the course of his administration.
This was contained in statement by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Habib Aruna
“One of the things that we did promise during the campaign is that we would continue with the infrastructural development of my predecessor and at the same time improve on it. That’s what we have started with in areas where we feel that there are immediate palliatives that we can give; we have done that but more importantly, is for us to improve on the network in which Mr. Babatunde Fashola had actually laid down,” he said.
Ambode said he used the first three months of his administration to set up an institutional framework, assuring the people that the state would begin to witness development across the state.
“I have no choice; I have to do it for all Lagosians. That’s what I am committed to do. I have said I am going to be selfless about service and that’s what I am going to do and you will see it. What I have done in the last three months is to set up the institutional framework.
“If you want to build a house, you have to lay the foundation. You will now see what I will be doing in the next three and half years, just watch and you would see it,” he said.
The governor assured the people of Epe that development would get to the area, saying the town had witnessed less development in recent times.
