Ambode promises to support transformation of Epe

Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, on Sunday assured residents of the Epe area of Lagos State that the ancient town will witness infrastructural development during his administration.
Ambode, who gave the assurance while speaking at a special Ramadan Lecture held at the premises of the Epe Local Government Area, thanked the people for the support shown to the All Progressives Congress during the electioneering, promising that the development of Epe was uppermost in his heart.
He assured residents of the area that his government would reciprocate the gesture by carrying out infrastructural projects that would make life comfortable for them.
“I know that a lot of us contested, but the bottom line is that I belong to this community and whatever it is that we do, it is in the interest of this community. We are all going to stand together to make sure that the development of Epe is uppermost in our heart,” he said.
Ambode, who hails from Epe, however enjoined residents to join hands with his government, urging them to seize the period of the Ramadan to pray for the success of his tenure in office.
He said, “I am glad Epe is one. It pleases God that what we have missed in the city for almost 40 years has come to us. It is now left for all of us to come together and join hands with this government.
“There is nothing I can do for Epe people that can be enough, but I assure you that Epe would be a new city. All I need from you now is prayer because I am ready to pay my dues in Epe and I will try my best to ensure that Epe and indeed Lagos State witness all round development and transformation.”
The guest lecturer, Dr. Nosirudeen Onibon, urged those who would form the cabinet of the governor to imbibe the culture of moral competence in the discharge of their duties.

He said governance thrived on division of labour, expressing optimism that with Ambode at  the helm of affairs in the state, Lagos would witness a great deal of development.
