Ambode appeals to residents over fuel crisis, power
The governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, has appealed to the residents of the state to bear with the government over the lingering shortage of fuel and power across the state.
This was contained in a statement issued on Wednesday by the State’s Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Steve Ayorinde.
“Lagos State consumes more than 40 per cent of the fuel and energy needs of the country and therefore appreciates that the impact of the scarcity would be felt more in the state,” said Ambode.
He urged residents to remain calm, orderly and law-abiding as the government is doing everything possible within its power to find an immediate solution to the crisis.
According to the statement, Governor Ambode says he shares the pain and discomfort of Lagosians and assures them that President Muhammadu Buhari is deeply touched by the situation and is working round the clock to alleviate the suffering of the people.
