The Lagos State House of Assembly has commended Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for his achievements in the area of infrastructural development within his 100 days in office.
The Majority leader, Hon. Sanai Agunbiade, Ikorodu constituency 02 raised the matter during plenary on Tuesday.
According to him, Sanwo-Olu has done well in the midst of infrastructural and environmental challenges and within 100 days in office and he has been able to solve the problem though not completely but better than what he met.
The roads have been assigned for palliative measures to fix them. He has also visited some projects which would have been abandoned not minding the fact that these projects were not initiated by him like the Imota road.
“He did not rush to the House for budget re-ordering or supplementary budget which shows he knows what he is doing.
“The House need to commend and encourage him for which he has been able to do,” Agunbiade posited.
Hon Rotimi Olowo in his contribution commended the Governor for setting up interministerial committee to ensure projects completion and avert abandonment.
He also commended him for his initiative in overhauling the state security trustfund, citing that much need be done on streetlights around the state.
The Speaker, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa noted that it is not out of place for the parliament to recognise and commend somebody who started well.
“We don’t base our judgment on artificial or physical structure being put in place but the expenditure invested in project.
Governance is all about listening to people and that is good governance.
“This is an avenue to encourage the Governor 100days in office. We are watching and appreciate all he has done. We assure him of our support. We however, call him to do more as Lagosians are waiting on him,” Obasa said.
He directed the Clerk of the House, Mr Azeez Sanni to communicate the Governor on the commendation from the state legislature.
Meanwhile, the Speaker announced a list of selection committee which he chairs to come up with the House standing committee.
The selection committee includes all Principal Officers and Hon.Victor Akande, Hon.Hakeem Sokunle, Hon.Owolabi Ajani and Hon.Rotimi Olowo.
