Sup­port govt for fast de­vel­op­ment –Am­bode

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Femi Aki­nola, La­gos

Gover­nor Ak­in­wunmi Am­bode of La­gos State has called on Nige­ri­ans to co­op­er­ate with gov­ern­ments at the fed­eral and state lev­els to en­sure fast de­vel­op­ment.

Am­bode who spoke at the In­de­pen­dence Day pa­rade held at the Po­lice Col­lege, Ikeja yesterday, said the call for ‘change’ by Nige­ri­ans had brought a new ad­min­is­tra­tion and for it to trans­late into good gov­er­nance, cit­i­zens must sup­port the gov­ern­ment by liv­ing in peace and har­mony.

Rep­re­sented by his deputy, Dr. Olu­ranti Ade­bule, the gover­nor as­sured Nige­ri­ans that the gov­ern­ment was de­ter­mined to take the coun­try to new heights.

He said cit­i­zens could also con­trib­ute to the de­vel­op­ment of the coun­try by re­port­ing bad el­e­ments within their neigh­bour­hoods and obey­ing laws.

He re­stated the com­mit­ment of his ad­min­is­tra­tion to de­liver on its set goals to­wards mak­ing life more com­fort­able for Lagosians and visi­tors, pledg­ing that his gov­ern­ment would con­sol­i­date on the ef­forts of the past ad­min­is­tra­tion in the state and work to­wards mak­ing the dream of a bet­ter and pros­per­ous La­gos a re­al­ity.

There were pa­rades by the Nige­ria Po­lice and para-mil­i­tary or­gan­i­sa­tions as well as pupils and stu­dents from var­i­ous pri­mary and sec­ondary schools to mark the an­niver­sary.
