Lagos State House of Assembly Speaker Mudashiru Obasa has handed over reports of the constituency stakeholders’ meeting organised by the House to Governor Akinwunmi Ambode for implementation.
The constituency stakeholders’ meeting, second in the series, took place simultaneously in all 40 constituencies.
The reports contained requests and recommendations of the people on how the state would achieve growth.
On Friday during the Executive-Legislative Parley, Obasa told the governor the reports contained wishes and recommendations of the people, urging him to ensure their implementation.
“We decided to feel the pulse of our people through the constituency stakeholders’ meeting and what I’m presenting to you today is their aggregate demands and recommendations collated by our field officers, who worked in the 40 constituencies,” the Lagos Assembly Speaker said.
Ambode assured that the contents would form major components of the 2017 budget.
Ambode later handed over the reports to Commissioner for Economic Planning and Budget Akinyemi Asade for implementation.
Ambode has a lot in stock for Lagosians, one of his aides said at the weekend.
Senior Special Assistant on Media and Strategy to the Governor, Mr. Idowu Ajanaku, spoke when he hosted a delegation of young professionals in his office at Alausa, the state secretariat
The delegates were led by Mr. Wale Adelakun, an ex-president of the Student Union Governing Council at the Federal University of Technology, Akure.
Ajanaku said: ”There are over eight thousands federal and state roads scattered across Lagos, with most of the road networks linking the rural areas with the urban areas in deplorable conditions. Fixing these roads is a major part of the people’s demand from the governor during the electioneering campaign.”
He said Ambode’s response has been immediate and impressive, as he embarked on the construction of two roads each in the local governments and the local council development areas.
Ajanaku said more projects were coming for the benefit of residents.
He added that “the decision of the government to embark on the demolition of shanties and criminal hide-outs in recent times is in line with the vision of the government to develop Lagos to a mega city status”.
