Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State says his administration will prioritise power, environment and transport sectors in the next two years.
Ambode, according to a statement on Monday, explained that the three sectors would positively affect other social infrastructure that the government intended to also address.
He said, “In the last two years, we have created the foundation of a vision that will drive Lagos for the next 50 years.
“There are three things I want people to watch out for in the next 12 to 18 months; the power, environment and sanitation and transport sectors will be used as key sectors that will drive every other social infrastructure that we will be handling.”
Ambode said the state must strive to be cleaner and safer for residents, visitors and investors.
“The more success we record, the more the people that will come into our city,” the governor said.
He stated that there were interventions ahead in the transport sector.
The governor said one of the interventions, the Bus Reform Initiative, would take off before the end of the year with the introduction of buses that would make movement easier.
The governor said efforts were ongoing to ensure stable power supply for industries, adding that government was creating embedded power clusters in the state.
Ambode said the state was willing to learn from other states, just as it had extended same gesture to sister state
