Executive, Legislature partnership key to good governance, says Ambode
Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has said that for any government to deliver on electoral promises and provide good governance for its citizens, Executive-Legislature collaboration is critical.
Ambode, who stated this yesterday while declaring open the 14th Lagos State Executive-Legislative parley with the theme, Lagos: The rise of a mega city state, the collaboration that works, said for any state government programme and policy to be effective and make impact, a sound legal frame-work is needed and the legislature is the body that usually provides that.He said there is nothing a government can achieve if the legal framework is not put together properly.
The governor, who commended the legislators at the National Assembly for being very co-operative, said: “We need the legal framework because without good legal framework, the private sector will not believe it and invest their money.”
Ambode, who further said that the collaboration had been the magic behind the successes recorded in Lagos State, noted that for the state to remain the most prosperous one, the collaboration must be sustained.
Besides, the Lagos State Head of Service, Mrs. Olabowale Ademola, in her welcome address said the theme of the parley is not only apt, but a deliberate effort to underscore the importance of collaboration to governance.
She said the forum has had a positive impact on delivering on electoral promises and good governance in Lagos State, which is why the state has become a model for inclusive governance.
