Service to humanity, focus of my govt â€“ Ambode
Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, at the weekend said selfless service and positive difference is what his administration is committed to deliver in the next four years.
The Governor, who spoke when members of the Hubert H. Humphrey Alumni Association and Representatives of the Public Affairs Section of the US Consulate General, Lagos, paid him a courtesy visit at the Lagos House, Ikeja, said his administration is set out to impact positively on the lives of the people in the state.
Governor Ambode, who is also an alumnus of the association, said he has benefitted from the fellowship programme in many ways, which he has resolved to bring to bear in the course of his administration.
â€œPart of the things I have benefitted from this programme is the way I have tried to touch the life of the next person I come across.â€
â€œThe truth is that your essence is your ability to touch as many people as possible and you know what our mantra is; you have to go out there and make a difference and ensure itâ€™s a positive difference and thatâ€™s the whole essence of public leadership.â€
â€œWe are here in this administration to ensure that we make a difference and we are also here to make sure that the difference is a positive one that will touch the lives of all Lagosians and thatâ€™s why in everything that we have said, we want to make life easier for the people, we want to make them happier and at the same time make things more comfortable for them. Thatâ€™s the whole essence of this administration and thatâ€™s what I stand for.â€
He said the experience garnered when he joined the Hubert Humphrey Association prompted the setting up of new offices and realigning of ministries in the civil service to match up with the changing times in the quest of his administration to better the lot of the people.
