Group hails Buhari, Ambode on good governance

A group operating under the aegis of Itesiwaju Ipinle Eko Vanguard (IIEV) has lauded President Muhammadu Buhari over his two-day official visit to Lagos State, saying the president and Lagos State governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode, have redefined good governance in the country.

President Buhari a few days ago paid official visit to Lagos during which he commissioned the Ike Bus Terminal and also graced the occasion of the 66th Birthday Celebration of the National Leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The state coordinator of the group, Mr. Seyi Bamigbade, who spoke to newsmen at the weekend, noted that the ultra-modern Ikeja Bus Terminal designed to redefine public transportation in line with the Bus Reform Initiative of the state government unveiled by the president during his visit was evidence of good governance in the country.

He said the ultra-modern Ikeja Bus Terminal was initiated to cater for movement of the growing population of the state and make modern buses available to the people, noting that it is only a proactive government that would conceive and complete such project.

Bamigbade also commended Governor Ambode for his developmental strides in the last three years, saying the just commissioned 21 network of roads and two bridges totalling 27.4 kilometres in Alimosho Local Government was an evidence of good governance.

The coordinator of IIEV added that the governor’s pledge to further develop other communities within the axis had further reposed people’s confidence in the ability of the governor to deliver on promises.

He said the roads, which connect Lagos with Ogun State from Agbado Oke-Odo Local Council Development Area now fitted with walkways, drainage system, laybys, service ducts, lane marking and street lights, among others would raise the value of the property and bring commerce to the area.

“Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has made Alimosho axis economically viable and also liveable. Lagosians don’t need to travel anywhere to earn a living. By opening up the whole network stretching 27.4km, he has brought the economy back to this place. With the walkways, street lights, these communities are becoming safer and there is more to do,“ Bamigbade said.

According to him, the roads are alternative routes to decongest traffic from the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway and could be used to access Ipaja up to Badagry without using the expressway, declaring that the project had opened up all sub-urban communities, reduce traffic congestion and created a better life for the people in the area.

He, therefore, urged residents of the state to go out to register and collect their Permanent Voter Cards (PVC) to enable them be vote Governor Ambode with more votes, come 2019.
