Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State on Thursday said he would implement more projects in 2018 aimed at making life comfortable for investors and residents.
The governor, who spoke in Alausa, Ikeja, at the grand finale of 2017 Community Day with the theme, ‘Community Affinity: Aligning Lagos Communities with Private Sector,’ said his administration’s aim was to transform and secure the future of the state.
He said, “2018 is a year we hope to achieve a phenomenal increase in the state’s ability to sustain itself by persuading more people to contribute to 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, the Oshodi Transport Interchange, the Abule-Egba and Ajah bridges, among others.
“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.
“With your support, we can safely commit ourselves that by the end of 2018, our communities will be better with more youths gainfully employed and small businesses growing.”
At the event, Ambode approved immediate support fund of N500,000 each to all the 57 community development committees in the state, totalling N28.5m.
In his goodwill message, Chairman of Lagos State Community Development Advisory Committee, the umbrella body for all the 3,900 CDAs in the state, Alhaji Tajudeen Quadri, said the body had decided to support Ambode for a second term.
