The Lagos Of Our Dreams: This Is What Lagos Will Be Like By 2025 - Ambode by Yuneek(f): 10:22am On Mar 12, 2018
The Lagos state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, on Tuesday declared what Nigeria's number one city will be like by 2025.

Ambode, made the submission at the gathering of captains of industry and top government officials at a programme tagged ‘LagosMeansBusiness’.

He stressed that government is consequently expected to explore the economic potentials of the state to meet the needs of the citizenry, adding that Lagos will be Africa’s model megacity, a global, economic and financial hub that is safe, secure, functional and productive.

The governor also stated that almost half of the Lagos state Internally Generated Revenue is used for the payment of salaries, including pensions and gratuities.

He said: “This event presents a platform for all concerned stakeholders to chat a path for the future of Lagos without any sentiment.



“This administration has decided to focus on three key areas of Power, Education and transport as a way of affecting other sectors of the society indirectly.

“The challenges of Lagos is enormous and it demands a strategic and proactive approach.’’

The governor maintained that Lagos needs structured corporate social responsibility targeted at initiatives that would be mutually beneficial to private sector and government.

The government, he said, would continue to support private sector, pleading that, “We are not true citizens until we become responsible tax payers.”

Ambode assured every Lagos resident that he would make their taxes work for them with a transparent and incorruptible government with good value for taxes paid.



The governor disclosed that taxable adult in Lagos are eight million out of which only 700,000 pay taxes.

He said: “We will tax those who are rich so as to protect them. That is what property tax which law was enacted in 2002 is saying. After 17 years, the law had not been reviewed.”

Really?

Lagos flouts it's own procurement laws with rock solid opacity. Crony companies are set up and enriched with Lagosians hard-earned money.

When last did you see adverts for tender of Lagos State projects?

When last was actual procurement done on any project?

HAVE PLANET PROJECTS BUILT A KIOSK BEFORE AMBODE'S GOVERNMENT IN LAGOS ?

Who owns these companies?

How do you partner with a Visionscape that didn't exist a year ago?

MEANWHILE THIS SAME MAN WORE A $17,000 WRISTWATCH IN HIS CAMPAIGN PHOTO!

Someone that spent 27/30 years in Public Service.

No worry, d guy never start wit una. No be him help Tinubu arrange IGR when Obasanjo hold LG money.

Kudos to the Lagos state government for its efforts, however, Lagos will still be in shadow of itself if other states (esp the neighbouring ones ) are not making efforts to equally improve their states.

I used to like this guy but he's beginning to annoy me. His aggressive revenue drive is very anti people.
He's becoming too ambitious lately.

Ride on governor,

We want a Lagos and a SW whose Lingua franca will be entirely Yoruba.

A Lagos where cultural consciousness grows at the same rate with infrastructural development.

This man is a silent achiever. He will definitely get a second term based on his performance.

Restructuring is the right thing to do, however, we do not need to restructure for our governors to start performing their duties. This man has a vision for Lagos State and he is quietly executing his visions - restructuring or no restructuring. If Ambode is able to just generate additional 1GW of Power through the Light Up Lagos Project, Lagos State will no longer need Federal Funding and that is the fact. Lagos light rail will happen and you guys need to see what is going on at Lagos Free Trade Zone and Epe. In a few years time, the economy of Lagos State will be bigger than the rest of Nigeria.
