Otunba Ojora-Adejiyan,

The Association of Lagos State Retired Heads of Service and Permanent Secretaries (ALARHOSPS) has commended Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on the “Ounje EKO” initiative, which is aimed at making staple foodstuffs available to a cross-section of Lagosians at affordable prices.

In a statement issued by the Association’s Publicity Secretary, Olusina Thorpe, President of ALARHOSPS, Otunba Nurudeen Ojora-Adejiyan described the initiative as a step in the right direction, stressing that it has shown that the leadership of the State is quite interested in the welfare and well-being of Lagos residents.

He said: “I want to commend our amiable Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his responsive and innovative team for this laudable initiative. We are of the view that others should emulate it, especially the Local Governments”.

Ojora-Adejiyan also lauded the recent strides of the State Government in fulfilling its campaign promises through the T.H.E.M.E.S Plus developmental agenda, especially the recently commissioned Lagos Red Line, which runs from Agbado to Iddo.

While urging the governor and his team to remain focused and steadfast, he advised the present administration to fine tune its strategies where gaps are noticed to ensure greater successes and achievements.

Similarly, the President also commended the Federal Government, through the Minister of Works and Housing, Engr. Dave Umahi for the quality of work being carried out on the Third Mainland Bridge, urging that this should be applied to all subsequent projects across the length and breadth of the country. 

He, however, noted with concern that some unscrupulous elements have started removing the railings on the bridge. He, therefore, called on law enforcement agents to bring these crooked elements to book so that our commonwealth will be protected and safeguarded.
