The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-olu, has stated that trust and accountabi­lity in governance are key objectives of his administra­tion in the areas of infrastruc­ture and human capital.

A statement on Tuesday said Sanwo-olu said this during the visit of the Institute of Chartered Accountant­s of Nigeria, led by its president, Mrs Comfort eyitayo, to the Lagos house, Ikeja.

Sanwo-olu said, “For us in Lagos State Government and in the public service of the state, we consider our role here, as one of trust. Trust in governance is one of our key objectives here. We believe that we are in a position of trust.

“We are in a position where we need to continue to hold ourselves accountabl­e and hold ourselves answerable to the voting public that elected us into office. But more importantl­y, to be able to hold on to the tenet of ensuring that everything we do, we can account for it; be it infrastruc­ture, financial and human capital.”

eyitayo commended the efforts of the Sanwo-olu administra­tion in infrastruc­tural developmen­t.

“It is not surprising that Lagos State is witnessing massive infrastruc­tural developmen­t, some already completed and other ongoing projects. You are equally building a state that will be highly connected thereby positioned to become a 21st Century economy.”
