Speaker of the Nigeria’s House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has commended the Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, for flagging off 377 roads and power projects across the various wards in the state.

Gbajabiamila also lauded Sanwo-Olu’s launching of N5 billion post-coronavirus recovery support capital for the education sector to support low-cost private schools in the state.

The Speaker said such people-oriented projects and initiatives must be commended and supported by all Lagosians.

He said the 377 projects would bring more dividends of democracy closer to the people, which is one of the goals of coming to power.

Gbajabiamila noted that the governor’s action has once again proven that the All Progressives Congress-led government at both the federal and state levels was ready to impact positively on the lives of the people.

The Speaker, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Lanre Lasisi, said when completed, the 377 projects, the first of its kind in the state, would make Lagos go further ahead of its peers nationwide.

The lawmaker said with the N5 billion support capital, Governor Sanwo-Olu has shown that he has the interest of those in the education sector, both in government and in the private sector, at heart.

He urged the governor to ensure the implementation and supervision of these initiatives for the betterment of the intended beneficiaries.
