Governmet committed to Lagosians’ welfare, says Ambode
Lagos State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode, yesterday, said he is committed to the welfare of Lagos residents irrespective of tribe, colour or creed.Ambode, who joined Muslims across the State to celebrate the 2017 Eid-el-Kabir festival, pledged to ensure that the dividend of good governance is evenly and fairly distributed.
Speaking at Iberekodo Primary School in Ibeju Lekki, one of the 20 centres designated by the State Government to mark the festival, Ambode reiterated that as part of his promise to run an all inclusive government, no part of the state will be left behind in the scheme of affairs, urging residents to continue to play their parts to bring about the desired transformation.
He rejoiced with the Muslim Ummah in the state, saying that the celebration signified the triumph of faith and the assurance that Almighty Allah will always open a way for those who have absolute trust in His grace.
The simultaneous celebration of the festival across 20 centres in the state, Ambode said became necessary because before now, residents flock the Lagos House to celebrate with the first family during any festive period, thereby subjecting them to travel long distance, but with the new method, everyone is catered for.
