Politics Ambode Swears in 57 LG/LCDA Sole Administrators [Photos]



Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State on Monday swore in Sole Administrators for the 57 Local Government and Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs) in the state, warning them to avoid corruption.

Ambode told the appointees at the ceremony in Ikeja that it would no longer be business as usual as the people of the state and the government would be watching them.

He said that the government would not hesitate to remove any administrator who failed to serve the people diligently or abused the office.

“It will no longer be business as usual; rather, it will be a tough journey requiring character, leadership, commitment and resilience of those at the helm of affairs to actualise our dreams.

“Strict accountability must be your watchword. Lagosians will be watching you and we will be watching you too.

“Your appointment today as Sole Administrators should therefore be seen as a call to service of our people.

“You are relay runners on a journey of reform that will ultimately culminate in the election of accountable people that will carry on the baton of good governance for our people. “For the duration of your race, I urge you to run the race efficiently with diligence so you do not betray the trust that has been placed in you,” Ambode said.
