The Lagos Assembly Speaker, in his Democracy Day message to Nigerians signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Musbau Rasak, also commended Nigerians for their courage and perseverance but assuring that the people will soon start to enjoy the dividends of the government’s socio-economic reforms.
“This is the third anniversary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration at the centre and I want to commend our people for their support and prayers not only for the government at the centre but also for the state and local governments.
“Yes, things have not been rosy, hence the need for me to commend your courage and perseverance. Our people have been so wonderful for their support and prayers.
“However, I want to assure you that very soon you will start to reap the dividends of the socio-economic reforms of the government.
“At the state level, there’s is no doubt that Lagosians are enjoying positive dividends of democracy with massive infrastructure and human development programmes anchored on people-oriented policies backed by rightly-guided legislation.
“For all, we have achieved in the state and still going to achieve, the people’s support, prayers and cooperation are the backbones. Therefore, we give kudos to Nigerians and Lagosians in particular for their support, prayers and cooperation for the APC administration at all levels and like Oliver Twist, we urge you not to relent in this as we all march forward to make Nigeria great.
“On behalf of my colleagues at the Lagos State House of Assembly, I wish you all a happy Democracy Day celebration,” the Lagos Assembly Speaker said
