Lagosians should expect good governance ─ Governor Ambode

The Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, says his commitment to run an open and transparent administration is unshakable.

Ambode, during the visit of the 51st President of Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria, Chief Olufemi Deru, to the Lagos House, Ikeja, on Wednesday, said Lagosians should expect good governance from him as a chartered accountant.

“I welcome the 51st President of ICAN, Chief Olufemi Deru, and his team. We are glad to receive you because what ICAN stands for is actually what Lagos stands for.

“I am also an example of what ICAN stood for. I am a very proud member of the institute. What I gained from the institute is what I am using as the governor.

“Help us to encourage more ICAN members to come into government. I know we are committed to open and transparent government because we represent that bridge of technocrats and professionals that touch lives of people of the state.”

Earlier, Deru congratulated Ambode on his success at the poll. He also invited him to annual ICAN conference.

In another development, Ambode on Thursday condoled with the Governor of Kaduna State, Malam Nasir el-Rufai, over the death of his foster father, Malam Yahaya Hamza, on Tuesday.

Hamza, was a renowned educationist and a former permanent secretary in the Federal Ministry of Education.

In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Habib Aruna, the governor urged el-Rufai to take solace in the fact that his father lived a fulfilled life.

“On behalf of the good people of Lagos state, accept my heartfelt condolence on this irreparable loss,” Ambode said.
