LAGOS—GOVERNOR Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State, yesterday, affirmed that his administration has impacted positively the lives of Lagos residents in the last four years through infrastructure development across the state.
Ambode spoke at the commissioning of Agric-Access Road, Egan, Lagos Theatre, Igando and Egan-Ayobo Link Bridge, all located within Ikotun-Igando Local Council Development Area, LCDA, of the state.
He also appealed to Lagosians to accord same support and cooperation his administration has enjoyed to his successor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
He said: “When our administration came into office, one of our cardinal promises was a government of inclusion. We were committed to a government where nobody, community or people will be left behind. As a result, we were determined to address the challenges of gross infrastructural deficit, flooding and erosion which the people around this senatorial district have lived with for some time now.
“I am pleased and fulfilled to see that our commitment to make our state globally competitive and radically change our infrastructural profile to one that befits a contemporary smart city has been successful with the massive construction of roads and bridges we have undertaken in the last four years.”
“The unveiling of Agric Road Bamidele Kasali/Dosu Ekunrin Road today is a testimony to our passion to make our people happier, our roads better and our State safer. By this action, we are providing critical and needed infrastructure as well as reciprocating the support our government has enjoyed from this constituency in the last four years”, he said.
