LAGOS—Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State, yesterday, unveiled two sets of code of conducts for political office holders in the state to serve as guiding principles.
Similarly, Fashola signed into law, two bills on the establishment of the Lagos State Health Management Agency titled: Lagos State Health Scheme for residents and Publication of the Laws of Lagos State.
While presenting the Code of Conduct at the Banquet Hall of Lagos House, Alausa, Ikeja, the governor, explained that “The code of conduct will help make the burden of the incoming administration lighter. It will streamline their process and serve as references to quick solution to questions. The book contains the history of the state. It will give any public office holder the opportunity to know their role and how they could navigate seamlessly.”
According to him, “the need for the code of conduct became compelling for me as the current administration strategises to quicken government activities. With this book which is subject to constant review, the incoming government will be speaking with one voice. And I believe that this will assist the government to forge ahead as a team rather than speak as a divided house.”
On the Health Agency Law/ Health scheme, Fashola said the frequent scarcity of fuel experienced in the country would be completely solved if everyone adheres to the law and order in the country.
The governor noted that fuel and other needs of human beings are worthless without adherence to law and order,
