Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, on Monday inaugurated the newly appointed Sole Administrators for 20 Local Government Areas (LGAs) and 37 Local Council Development Area (LCDAs).
The governor, also, cautioned all the sole administrators that were sworn in against corrupt practices and abused use of public offices, which he said, could incur them the wrath of the state government.
He swore the appointees in at Lagos House, Alausa, Ikeja, alongside the Deputy Governor, Dr. Oluranti Adebule; Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Olatunji Bello, the state’s Attorney General & Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Adeniji Kazeem and a lawmaker from Lagos West senatorial district, Sen. Olamilekan Solomon.
At the inauguration, Ambode charged the sole administrators to see their appointment as “a call to service of the people. You are relay runners on a journey of reform that will ultimately culminate in the election of accountable people that will carry on the baton of good governance for our people.”
He, also, urged them “to run the race efficiently with diligence and not to betray the trust that has been placed in you. Your job is to go to the local governments you have been posted and make a difference to the lives of the people.
