Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has stated that his administration of four years has turned things around in the city of Lagos State.
The governor made this known while speaking to newsmen shortly after inaugurating the 400-seater Lagos theatre on Friday night in Epe area of the state.
Reviewing his tenure which will end on Tuesday, Ambode expressed gratitude to God for giving him the grace to serve Lagos.
“This is more of a fulfilling day for me. If there is anything for me to say, it’s that I am fulfilled that a day like this can come in the history of this town.
“Four days to go in four years, we have turned things around.
“God has given us the grace that I can come back here and actually spend my last weekend of those four years with my people.
“We are very delighted that, among the theatres that we have established, we have the opportunity to come and inaugurate the one in Epe.
“I am very grateful to God. You never planned what you met on the way. Having had that opportunity to be elected as governor and for four years, one is able to do it in good health and mind. To God be the glory.
“The main purpose of governance is giving back to humanity and serving selflessly. All that put together, I am happy I was able to do that and God gave me the grace.
“The fact that I am also leaving in good health is a sort of fulfillment for me,” he said.
Ambode said governance is a continuum and expressed the hope that his successor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, would continue where he stopped.
The governor added that the new edifice will help to promote tourism and hospitality both at Epe and in Lagos in general.
