Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, yesterday, assured the people of the state of a great 2016 as his administration would go all out to ensure improved infrastructural development, job creation and security.
“Under my administration, the year 2016 holds great promise for all Lagosians through improved security, creation of job opportunities and greater attention to positive infrastructure development… I am aware that 2016 will also bring economic challenges due to pressures of dwindling revenue from the centre, but Lagos has always been resilient and must consolidate on its self-reliance to ensure it survives any inclement economic weather,” he said at the Bar Beach while addressing thousands of fun seekers at the grand finale of the One Lagos Fiesta, a countdown event to usher in the New Year.
“The last seven months have been challenging, but with your patience, support and positive criticism, we have begun to display a positive outlook on innovation and inclusion we promised during our campaign.”
Gov. Ambode also assured Lagosians that his administration will pursue greater channels to engage the youths in the state in 2016. He urged them to work with him to make Lagos clean, safe and secured for all.
He also said the N25billion Employment Trust Fund, an initiative of his administration, would take off this year, expressing optimism that it would help the youths to set up their businesses.
