Governor Ambode’s Democracy Day Address to Lagosians
Exactly one year ago, I took the oath of office and allegiance as the 14th Governor of our dear State. Then, you committed yourselves and the future of the State into my hands; the huge responsibility of serving you.
A year ago He said:
“To my main opponent, Mr. Jimi Agbaje of the PDP, I thank you for a keen contest and invite you, alongside other governorship candidates, to join hands with me in moving Lagos forward,” he said.
Ambode then made a promise to Lagosians that his administration would build on the legacy and achievements of his predecessors, Gov. Babatunde Fashola and Chief Bola Tinubu.
“I am humbled that you have placed your trust and faith in me.
“The love of this state and our common belief in what we can accomplish, our belief in what this state already is, and in what it is destined to become binds us together in a social and moral contract of high purpose.
“I shall honour that contract with every fiber of my being.
I want to say thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve.
Today, I am humbled by the clear support and encouragement you have shown to me and my government in the last one year.
Today, I am happy to report, despite the fact that the global economy is in turmoil and the Nigerian economy is facing huge challenges, Lagos is marching on with confidence and a clear vision.
Our vision remains the same as declared in my manifesto last year; To make Lagos a clean, secure and prosperous State with a robust economy built on service, equity and justice.
