Published

Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, on Monday unveiled plans to commence a quarterly rendering of account of stewardship of his administration to intimate Lagosians on the journey so far as well as his plans to take the state to the next level.

The Governor, in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Habib Aruna, said the quarterly rendering of account which will take the form of town hall meetings, will take the government to the nooks and crannies of the state to present its account of stewardship.

He said the town hall meetings will not only afford his administration the opportunity to render its account, it would also go a long way to feel the pulse of the people and get firsthand knowledge of their needs and concerns.

“The maiden edition of our quarterly report will be rendered in the first week of October and would continue in that tradition every three months going forward. At the end of each quarter, our government would report to the people of the state on the journey so far and the task ahead,” he said.

He said his administration’s efforts in the last three months had been geared towards making sure that public institutions work in the interest of the people, alluding to the fact that public institutions had been animated to measure up to the expectations of the people of the state.

“We are committed to making the various public institutions work to the benefit of the people of the state. That, in my view, is why we were elected.

“So our government will use the town hall meetings to get feelers from the populace on how government affects them and what they want from government. The populace will also have the opportunity to know what we have been doing and what we intend to do to make the state safer, cleaner and more prosperous for all who have chosen this state as their home,” Ambode said.

Nollywood actress, Juliana Olayode has recounted how her senior colleague and boss, Funke Akindele emptied her bank account to save her mother’s life.

In the wake of claims that Funke Akindele doesn’t treat her staff right, Juliana debunked it as she made it known that Funke is the reason her mother is still alive after battling Fibroid.

In a lengthy post on his Instagram page, Juliana showered encomium on Funke as she recalled how the movie star emptied her account to make sure her mother was taken to a private hospital and treated immediately. She noted how the movie star does a lot of good for people, yet doesn’t post it for publicity.

Juliana added that Funke has worked hard to be where she is today and God backed her up. Raining prayers for her and her children, she wrote,

“Mamaaaaaaaaaaaaa @funkejenifaakindele
Olufunke Omo Akindele, the one who the Lord delights in.
The apple of God’s eyes, the one who has found favor in the sight of God, the one whom God has clothed with so much grace and glory, the one whom God has enthroned!!!! The one whose path is like a shining light, the one whose light can not be dimmed!

Olufunke Omo Akindele, the one who has gone through fire and came out without smelling like smoke, is a strong woman, a resilient woman, an Amazon, a phenomenal woman, a pacesetter, a record breaker, and a good woman.

My mum would have died of fibroid years ago, had you not emptied your account to make sure that she was taken to a private hospital and treated immediately.

You do a lot of good but you don’t post about it, you don’t do it for publicity, a lot of people are on your payroll, and you have done so much that an Instagram caption would not be enough to talk about it.

You have worked so hard to be where you are and God backed you up. You will never fall and you will never fail, the mighty hand of God will continue to carry you for the rest of your life.
You, your children, and everything that concerns you is covered by God!!!!

I LOVE YOU MAMA”.
