Lagos appeals to NASS on special status implementation
Lagos State Government has appealed to the National Assembly, to set aside politics in the award of special status for states.
Commissioner for Local Government and Community Affairs, Muslim Folami, speaking at the unveiling of Eko Shirt, by members of Team Nigeria, as part of activities marking the state’s 50th anniversary, said the special status is graciously deserved by the state, considering its position as the centre of excellence.
He noted that the Ambode-led administration has been promoting the concept of inclusive governance, a system through which government policies, projects and programmes shall be driven by the needs of the communities, thus adopting the bottom-up approach in the development of the state.
Folami, disclosed that, next week, Team Nigeria that invented the Eko Shirt, in partnership with over 200 youth based organisations and schools, will unveil Africa’s largest promotional shirt, measuring 50 feet.
It will take the shirt on a 10-day road show to all the council areas in the state, to create awareness for the 50th anniversary celebration.
