Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, on Friday reiterated commitment to the actualisation of the various initiatives put in place by his administration.
Ambode said the initiatives were meant to engender life better and more prosperity to the people, just as he assured that the state would witness massive transformation in critical sectors in the next six months.
Speaking in Badagry at the opening session of a two-day retreat organised by the state government for members of the state executive council and body of permanent secretaries, the governor said creating value for the people remained top priority of his administration.
According to him, the state government is ready to partner with willing individuals and corporate organisations towards achieving the goals.
The retreat was tagged: “Reflect, reappraise, restrategise: Raising the bar of governance.”
Ambode noted that the challenge before him in the last 13 months was about adding positive value and taking decisions only in the best interest of the people.
He said, “This government is about creating value for our people. That is the whole essence of our coming together as a team. It is all about seeing to what extent can we create value for Lagosians.
“That is our everyday challenge that the people have seen in the last 13 months. I believe that creating value is the central focus of everyday decision we have taken at the executive level and even the body of permanent secretaries level.
“We are all out to give positive value to Lagosians.
“We don’t want to make life difficult for people and we also want to ensure that in every decision that we make, the overall interest of the larger populace is actually affected positively.”
