2015 Make Extra-Erdinary Efforts To Move Lagos forward, Ambode charges heads of boards, commissions

Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State yesterday inaugurated the newly appointed Chairmen, Executive Secretaries and members of some Boards and Commissions of state agencies.
Ambode, during the inauguration held at the State House, Alausa, charged them to see their appointments as a call to service and give extra-ordinary efforts to move the state forward.
He said their appointments and the inauguration of the State Executive Council exactly two weeks ago were geared toward avoiding any vacuum that could impede timely and smooth policy implementation process.
The governor said as public officials, the new appointees must have it at the back of their minds that they shoulder a great burden which called for high sense of responsibility and sacrifice.
Ambode said that this would require extra-ordinary efforts and commitment to the advancement of the state in particular and Nigeria in general.
He urged the appointees to deliver and add value to the quality of service in the state.
“To achieve a globally competitive economy that works 24 hours of the day and seven days of the week requires extra-ordinary efforts and commitment. This is what is required of you.
“I urge you to uphold the spirit of excellence for which our state is known by discharging your responsibilities excellently.
“Nothing short of excellence is acceptable to the people of Lagos State.
“I urge you to maintain your integrity and always be guided by the principles of transparency, accountability and the rule of law,” Ambode said.
Responding on behalf of the appointees, Mr Babatunde Rotinwa promised that they would justify the confidence reposed in them by the governor to serve the people.
“We will discharge this duty with all sense of responsibility. We shall be transparent, honest and be diligent in the course of this assignment,” Rotinwa said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the bodies inaugurated include the Lagos State Health Service Commission, Lagos State Audit Service Commission and Lagos State Local Government Service Commission.
Others are the Lagos State Judicial Service Commission, Lagos State Christian Pilgrims Welfare Board and Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board.
The governor also inaugurated the Chairman and Executive Secretaries of Lagos State Safety Commission, Lagos State Water Regulatory Commission, and the Lagos State Wharf Landing Fee Collecting Authority. (NAN)
