They want to deceive Lagosians by projecting success by association. But did Obama project himself by associating with any Kennedy family? Ambode is only projecting the vision of those who have attained success.He has none to give .On the other hand,here is Jimmy Agbaje on his very own…
This is my vision for Lagos and my contract with Lagosians:
To lead Lagos in a fundamentally new direction where the growth and future of this state is not just dependent on government intervention but driven by policies that encourage rapid growth of the private sector. My vision of a truly world-class Mega-City is hinged on a renewed focus on infrastructure, social services, transparency in government, human and enterprise development, security and inclusiveness. And by this:
We aim for a Lagos that embraces its position as a global mega-city state populated by well-educated, skilled, healthy people living in a secure prosperous environment.
We strive for a Lagos that enables ‘Lagosians’ to achieve the personal, entrepreneurial and professional aspirations, regardless of origin, socio-economic background and gender.
We will work towards a Lagos that confirms its place as a regional hub for financial and professional services and commercial enterprise through genuinely business-friendly reforms and initiatives.
Our government will be inclusive and will foster partnerships with the private sector, other tiers of government, non-governmental interest and community groups to improve access and delivery of economic goods and services.
My policy philosophy is based on aspiration and prosperity with clear roles and responsibilities for residents and the government.
Every resident of Lagos has aspirations regardless of socio-economic background, educational-level, profession or status and it is important that residents are enabled to achieve their aspirations as the state government helps them to:
ACCESS the identified opportunities
BENEFIT from or take advantage of opportunities
Residents, who have expectations of the government, must also embrace their responsibilities to the government and fellow residents.
The government will partner with diverse, appropriate stakeholders to deliver economic goods, service and infrastructure.
Partners will include:
Local government and wards
Non-governmental organisations and professional interest groups
Community and neighbourhood groups
The Private sector
International agencies and non-government organisations
The government will:
Ensure efficient and cost-effective provision/delivery of facilities and services.
Regulate, monitor and evaluate the quality of services and facilities provided
