A former Senior Special Assistant to ex-Governor Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Commerce andÂ Industry, Mr Lanre Bamigboye, has tasked elected and appointed government officialsÂ to square up to the challenges of office.
Speaking with journalists in Lagos, he lamented the lack of impact of most of theseÂ officials on the citizenry.
This, he reasoned, was far from ideal as the officials were put in office asÂ representatives of the people.
Bamigboye, who is contesting for Mushin II Constituency seat in the Lagos StateÂ House of Assembly urged them to rededicate themselves to duty, so that theÂ citizenryâ€™s perception of government officials will change positively.
He added that government efforts at generating internal revenue will equally achieveÂ better results.
He said the people of Mushin Local Government were particularly impressed with theÂ performance of the Fashola administration so far.
According to him, since taking over from Tinubu, the governor has continued hisÂ predecessorâ€™s record of performance. Similarly, the House of Assembly aspirantÂ lauded the efforts of Dr Muiz Banire, the Environment Commissioner, Senator GaniyuÂ Solomon, describing them as worthy ambassadors.
