Former Governors of Lagos State, Babatunde Raji Fashola and Akinwunmi Ambode, on Saturday, lectured the newly-inaugurated cabinet members of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on the need for the delivery of good governance to the people.
The two former governors were among the facilitators who shared their experiences with the new executive council members at the 2023 On-Boarding and Executive Retreat Programme for the state executive council and body of Permanent Secretaries held in Epe, with the theme: ‘Navigating Government Excellence: “Role of Leadership in ensuring a greater Lagos rises’.
According to Governor Sanwo-Olu, the aim of the retreat was to harp on the need for the newly sworn-in cabinet members to work together as a team with a sense of commitment as well as bonding and sharing the vision with their staff.
Sanwo-Olu said that with the retreat, the new cabinet members have no excuse not to deliver the dividends of democracy to Lagosians or fail them to enjoy the benefits of quality service delivery.
He also sought for the cooperation of the media in delivering the dividend of democracy, noting that his administration would no longer tolerate lawlessness, or any action that would affect peaceful coexistence in the state.
Speaking, the Lagos State Head of Service, Hakeem Muri-Okunola, and Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso assured the governor that the new cabinet members would work as a stronger team, act proactively to address issues, take charge and render quality service to Lagosians as the government enforce the law in order not to loose the environment to flooding.
Commissioner for Tourism, Toke Benson- Awoyinka, also affirmed her commitment to the Ministry of Tourism, to collaborate with appropriate stakeholders to promote Afrobeat Music as it makes Lagos a tourism destination in Africa and the world where hospitality is top notch.
