Some members of the Lagos State House of Assembly say Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, is on course with sterling achievements recorded in the last three years.
The lawmakers made the assessment in separate interviews with the News Agency of Nigeria on Wednesday in Lagos.
The assemblymen, who lauded Ambode’s development strides across the state, said his administration was “above board’’.
Dipo Olorunrinu, the only PDP member in the House, told NAN that the governor had been able to distinguish himself as one with clear cut direction and agenda.
Oloruninu said: “Putting the bias apart, Ambode is good, considering the massive infrastructure development across the state and investment in security.
“The government of Ambode, which I am part of as a legislator, cannot be rated low in people-oriented policies and programmes.’’
Also speaking, Segun Olulade, the Chairman, House Ad hoc Committee on Health Service, said: “Ambode has become a darling to the people in the state and those outside”.
He said: “This governor has demonstrated that he knows the need of the people in terms of infrastructure, security, emergency, employment, credit facilities, power supply, transport, education, health and he has delivered.”
Also, Setonji David, representing Badagry Constituency II, said that the governor had been able to manage the resources of the state well.
David said the government had not only succeeded in improving the state’s economy, but given hope to those living in suburbs of the state.
He said: “Huge investments have been attracted to the state, we must applaud Ambode, we should also commend him for not concentrating on the metropolis alone in development projects.”
Prince Adebisi Yusuff, representing Alimosho Constituency I in the House, described Ambode as ‘Mr Project’, saying the governor had turned the state into construction site.
Yusuff said that the governor’s achievements in the last three years were unparalleled.
Jude Idimogu, representing Oshodi/Isolo Constituency II, said the governor’s administration was on course.
Idimogu said: “Everybody admires him including the non-indigenes. The governor has been able to transform all sectors of the economy with great improvement in tourism.
“He has done very well and should be returned in 2019 for more transformation and giant strides in all facets.’’
The Chairman, House Ad hoc Committee Works and Infrastructure, Abiodun Tobun, said that Ambode had given residents good governance with renewal of infrastructure.
Tunde Braimoh, the spokesman for the House, noted that the numerous achievements of the governor remained subject of discussions by most residents.
