The newly inaugurated members of Lagos State Assembly have been urged to work harmoniously as a team by legislating on implementable policies and programmes that would deepen the dividends of democracy at the grassroots.
The charge is from the Lagos State Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Pastor Cornelius Ojelabi while congratulating the old and newly-elected members of the 10th Assembly.
Pastor Ojelabi said “We all stand to benefit when the house is intact, devoid of cracks, dissension, divisions, and rancour.
I therefore charge you all to put the interests of our State as top priority rather than engaging yourselves in acts that could destabilise or retard her progress.
He congratulated them for their victory at the polls and appealed to them to demonstrate the confidence the residents reposed in them by working toward bringing the dividends of democracy to the people.
Pastor Ojelabi implored the lawmakers to work with Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, his Deputy Obafemi Hamzat, and all the executive members of the state by performing their statutory duties in a peaceful and friendly manner devoid of any acrimony or rancour for the common good of Lagosians.
Pastor Ojelabi said that Lagosians are yearning for continuous growth and development which can only reach them through the enactment of people-oriented laws and charged them to put the interests of the state as top priority.
“It is also a testimony of the fact that our party is a reliable and formidable one that Lagosians have confidence in to continue to deliver the dividends of democracy to them as it has been doing in the years past” Pastor Ojelabi noted.
Pastor Ojelabi pointed out that “Let us remember that we can achieve whatever we set before us through sacrifice, patience, faith, and prayers to God.
Let us remember that it is only the best that is good for Lagos State so that other states will continue to emulate and regard her as the state of first choice”.
