The Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, has said that Nigeria is on recovery path after years of maladministration just as he urged Nigerians to remain hopeful.
Speaker Obasa stated this in his Democracy Day message released in Lagos on Sunday, 29th May, 2016, signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Musbau Rasak.
The Lagos Assembly Speaker commended Nigerians for their patience over the past one year noting that they should not lose hope as there are clear signs that the country is on the way to recovery.
“It was obvious that the country has suffered serious maladministration in the 16 year rule of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and in correcting this, there is the need to put in place enduring structures that will assist in reviving the economy.
“The past one year has seen the laying of solid foundation on which the resurrected economy will rest. Without this solid foundation, the economy will be groping in the dark.
“This is what the All Progressives Congress (APC) government at the centre has been doing and we will soon start to see the benefits and gains,” Speaker Obasa said.
He assured Nigerians that the APC administration at both states and national level is committed to putting in place solid structures that will ensure that Nigerians enjoy full dividends of democracy even at their doorsteps.
Speaker Obasa commended the Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode who he said, has built on the solid foundation of his predecessors to put smiles on the face of Lagosians.
“The case of Lagos should be a role model for other states in the federation. The state has been under the rule of the progressives for the past 16 years and the result has been that the state continues to grow in leaps and bounds.
The Akinwunmi Ambode administration has built on the foundations laid by his predecessors and he has achieved tremendous success in just 12 months.
“Lagos is growing, developing and making astronomical progress under Ambode, our governor deserves commendation,” he said.
Speaker Obasa urged Nigerians not to relent on their supports, cooperation and prayers for the APC government at both state and national level assuring that, “we’ve indeed got out of the dark tunnel, the light is here”.
