Election won’t slow down governance in Lagos – Ambode

Akinwunmi Ambode (2)

Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, has vowed that electioneering activities in 2018 will not slow down the tempo of infrastructural development being witnessed across the State, assuring that his administration will complete all ongoing projects and implement new ones.

Mr Ambode spoke at the opening session of a three-day retreat for members of the State Executive Council, Body of Permanent Secretaries and heads of government agencies and parastatals held at Jubilee Chalet, Epe.

According to the governor Ambode, rather than allow campaign activities to relegate governance, the state government would stay focused on plans and programmes for the people and ensure that steady progress was achieved.

The governor said though a lot had been achieved with the active support and collaboration of the participants at the retreat since his assumption of office, a lot more still needed to be done to ensure continuous prosperity of the state and residents.

“I hear people saying that this is an election year and that governance will slow down but let me assure you that in this State, we will stay focused on our plans and programmes and ensure steady progress is achieved,” Governor Ambode said.
