I’ll account for every expenditure, revenue –Ambode
Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, yesterday told residents of the state that he would account for every expenditure and revenue of the state.
He was addressing residents of Lagos West Senatorial District at a Town Hall meeting in Ipaja.
Ambode who noted that the task ahead of his administration was enormous, sought total support of Lagosians, saying, “Our vision is to make Lagos globally competitive in all sectors. We are on the way to building a Lagos that is safe, clean and prosperous”.
Speaking on stabilising the finances of the state, the governor said: “I am determined to be accountable for every revenue and expenditure of the state. One of our first key tasks was to stabilise the finances of the state. We embarked on financial re-engineering and reviewed the revenue and expenditure framework of the state.
“These efforts coupled with re-realignment of Ministries, Departments and Agencies saves the government almost N3 billion every month. This has provided us more funds to inject into capital projects to establish the Employment Trust Fund which we promised our youths”, he said.
