Ambode, A Special Gift To Lagos, Says Commissioner by 10Ebisco: 5:21am On Jun 23, 2018
Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has been described as a blessing from God to the people of Lagos State. The Lagos State Commissioner for Home Affairs, Dr. AbdulLateef AbdulHakeem, said this while speaking with newsmen yesterday.

According to the Commissioner who is also a renowned Islamic cleric, God’s unwavering love for Lagos State has manifested in the leadership of Governor Ambode whose methodical approach to governance has brought about rapid development strides that are visible throughout the state. Describing his boss as a special gift to the state, Dr. AbdulHakeem said the Governor has purposefully addressed all the challenges that his administration inherited when he assumed office three years ago, including traffic congestion, kidnapping, cultism and other crimes that were hitherto prevalent in the state. Although he noted that the state is not a stranger to progressive leadership, especially since the defining era of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the Commissioner added that Governor Ambode has raised the tempo of people-oriented governance with ongoing massive infrastructural projects dotting the entire landscape of the state.

The Commissioner, who said that the network of roads in the state has remarkably improved under the current administration, added that with construction of inner city roads and those of the highways with lay-bys and bus-stops, the face of traffic flow and management has been redefined. “Travel time within the state has reduced. You will certainly see the improvement while driving on Lagos roads. I am sure driving and living in the state would be more interesting and enjoyable by the time several ongoing urban-renewal projects are completed. Pedestrian bridges are springing up on highways to prevent residents from losing their lives while crossing the highways. Lay-bys are being constructed on major roads to also prevent indiscriminate parking by motorists, a practice which used to contribute to the traffic gridlock.

Nothing less than modern 1000 bus-stops will soon be completed to ease traffic flow. The lay-bys and slip roads are constructed with installation of wire mesh fencing to bring out orderliness on our highways like never before. And of course the icing on the cake is the sustained Light-Up Lagos, which has been able to perform multi-functions on our roads and city metropolis. It enables motorists to see clearly at night; it has also chased criminals and other nigh marauders away from the black spots in addition to beautifying our city. We can now feel the beauty of having our streetlights illuminate the nooks and crannies of Lagos at night. What about the gains accruable through the night economy in the areas with streetlights? Gradually, Lagos is becoming a smart city of our dream.”
