Sanwo-Olu Tasks Newly Elected Councils' Chairmen In Lagos,To Justify Autonomy

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has tasked the newly elected chairmen for 57 local government areas and local council development areas in Lagos state, to justify the autonomy given to them, by implementing people oriented projects

Sanwo-Olu gave the task on Tuesday while inaugurating the new chairmen and their vice-chairmen at a ceremony held at the State House, Alausa in Ikeja.

The Governor in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile, urged the LGAs and LCDAs  to ensure that such projects  focus on improving the lives of people at the grassroots.

He added that the administrative and financial autonomy being enjoyed by LGAs and LCDAs in nearly two decades is to accelerate from the bottom to the top across the state 

Sanwo-Olu in the statement was quoted  as saying, “Today, we are witnessing the dawn of a new era in local government administration in Lagos State. A resounding statement has been made, once again, that Lagos is APC, and that the people of Lagos continue to regard our party as the most viable and most credible political choice for the most populous State and biggest subnational economy in the country. We consider this overwhelming support as a vote of confidence in our administration and our great party, and it will never be taken for granted.

“I congratulate the newly elected chairmen and vice-chairmen across all the LGAs and LCDAs. Your victory is an affirmation of trust in your competence, capacity and capability to discharge the responsibility of the Office you are stepping into. Being the closest tier of Government to the people, any gap or shortcoming in administration will be keenly felt by the people. As a result, your policies and programmes must be people-oriented, focusing on how to improve the lives and livelihood of the people at the grassroots.

Edu-Biznews recalled that the All Progressives Congress APC last July 24,swept all chairmanship seats across the 57 local councils in the state
