Lagos State Deputy Governor, Obafemi Hamzat, has said that he plans to be the best deputy governor ever in the state, by working in synergy with Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to better the lives of Lagosians.
Hamzat said this on Friday during a meeting with the staff of Office of the Deputy Governor at Alausa, Ikeja.
“It worries me that the life span of a typical Nigerian is below required standard: men – 46, women – 49, which means we are doing something wrong,” Hamzat began.
“Our health system is bad, our environment is horrible and everything is going down the drains.
“This is why our project THEMES are hinged on traffic management and transportation, health and environment, education and technology, making Lagos a 21st century economy, entertainment and tourism, as well as security and governance.
“We owe it to God and to our children to build this land, so that our children can be proud of our country and stop running to other countries for greener pastures, so they can sustain us when we are old.
“I urge our civil servants to be the best in whatever they do. I plan to be the best deputy governor ever in this state, so that together, we can transform Lagos State to better our citizens,” Hamzat said.
The deputy governor said he would work with the governor to increase the state’s budget.
