Just four months into his reign as governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode has disclosed that he has helped the government save a whooping N12billion.
Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State, on Tuesday, October 6, said his administration had cut the cost of governance by saving N3billion monthly.
The governor said the cut in the cost of governance saved the government and the state N12 billion in the first quarter of his administration.
He spoke at the first edition of the quarterly Town Hall Meeting at Abesan Estate, Alimosho, where he rendered the account of his stewardship since he resumed on May 29.
Ambode said he reduced the cost of governance through the re-alignment of the Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) and restructuring of government.
At the meeting, which was attended by participants from Lagos West, he stressed that he was determined to be accountable for every revenue and expenditure.
“This has provided us with more funds to inject into capital projects and the initial funds to establish the Employment Trust Fund, which we promised our youths.
“Today, a major landmark of our administration is the reduction in the cost of governance. We want a lean government with quality service delivery.
“The Lagos State government is proud to declare that it has consistently met its obligations, especially prompt payment of salaries without seeking any bailout from the Federal Government,” Ambode said.
