Group lauds Lagos government community development projects

•Calls for more rural impacting projects 

The Club Seventies Epe in Lagos State, Nigeria, has commended Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu led administration for entrenching good governance through the execution of the pro-people project in various communities of the state.

The apolitical group made the commendation recently as Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu led Administration marks his 2nd year in office with the commissioning of series of people's oriented project across the state, especially those within the Epe Division.

In a statement signed by the President, Club Seventies Epe, Mr Sanuth Ibrahim Adesegun said infrastructural development is key to the growth of a developing country like Nigeria.

It would be recalled that on June 14, 2021, Governor Sanwo-Olu inaugurated a 110-bed Maternal and Child Centre (MCC) in Epe, toward curbing maternal and infant mortality and also commissioned the Regional Safety Arena that houses Fire Services, LASEMA, RRS Police, Neighbours Safety Corps, LASTMA, and a Magistrate Court.

Mr Sanuth posited that the unveiling of the four-floor, 110 bed-Maternal Child Centre was another essential facility for safe childbirth and the reduction of maternal and infant mortality in the community.

The President further hinted that the full-equipped MCC in Epe was a clear demonstration of the Sanwo-Olu administration’s seriousness about the war against maternal and child mortality.

Sanuth explained that the Club also supported and aligned with Governor Sanwo-Olu administration’s T.H.E.M.E.S Agenda, an acronym for his administration’s six strategic development agenda namely, Traffic Management and Transportation, Health and Environment, Education, Security and Technology.

According to Sanuth, "In the last two years, the Sanwo-Olu led government has shown great commitment to the improvement of maternal and child health indices in the state.

”The over-reaching goal is to eradicate infant and child mortality in communities and state, while our women must no longer die while giving life.

”Government should remain unwaveringly committed to this goal because there is no better time than now to put an end to preventable maternal and child deaths – with technological advancement, modern equipment and well-trained health workers.

“The process of bringing life into existence should no longer lead to the loss of another life.”

The President, however, appeal to the state government to look into developing other sectors like education, agriculture infrastructure and youths empowerment opportunity in rural communities.

He urged the local government authorities to emulate the state government projects initiative by giving back to the society, noting such gesture would improve infrastructure development in the community and create more values for the people.

Sanuth charged local government administrator/chairmen to ensure development in the community by facilitating the development of the rural communities, as a means of supporting the developmental strides of Mr Governor across the state.

Sanuth asserted that the problem of local government administration in the state borders on misplacement of priorities by elected chairmen stating the mistakes are bound to be corrected if the incoming chairmen will look inwards and take governance to their people, replicating what Governor Sanwo-Olu is doing in the state.

He disclosed that passion for rural development should be the utmost concern and development for chairmen in rural communities.

“Some of us, on our capacity and as a Club have rendered services as part of our corporate social responsibility, but the elected chairmen have the great task of developing our communities. They must have to avoid misplacement of priorities, to get it right.”

The President said that the chairmen must demonstrate on their part,  readiness to embark on developmental projects that will impact meaningfully on their rural dwellers.

He also appealed to the Governor to ensure all the ongoing projects within Epe Division started by the previous administration were completed especially that of Awolowo stretch of road. 

He stressed the importance of that road as it connects the major Fish Market that Epe is known for in and outside Nigeria.

In his conclusion, the President enjoined the Epe Community to double their support and encouragement for the administration to do more, enthusing that, “Sanwo-Olu’s administration is determined to take the state to the enviable height of world standard."
