Governor Ambode

Lagos state has been going through a lot lately with the increased gridlocks and traffic robbers.

Turns out people are blaming the governor of Lagos state, Akinwunmi Ambode, for all of these.

Apparently, Governor Ambode has gotten word of this and is reassuring people of his government's commitment to solving their problems.

Something he did by going on an early morning patrol yesterday, November 4th.

He said all of these via his twitter handle, @AkinwunmiAmbode.

“I read and listen to all the criticisms. I try to learn from the positive criticisms and try not to let the abuse get to me because I know that soon enough this will change as our plans and projects unfold. It is a challenge and it keeps me on my toes. I also receive a lot of emails. Some complaint, some commend and some make suggestions. That comes with the job. Managing Lagos is a difficult task and it is difficult to make everybody happy at the same time. It comes with the territory. We know what we signed up for and we are committed to delivering on our development agenda for Lagos.”

Also, he recently expressed his concern over the bad state of the state, while warning people to be more cautious during the 'ember' months.

"We have declared zero tolerance on potholes and we are deploying more men to ensure free flow of traffic. As we are now in  the ‘Ember’ months, I just want to appeal to Lagosians to be more vigilant, and cooperate with us in all the measures we will be carrying out."
