8TH LAGOS EXECUTIVE LEGISLATIVE PARLEY ENDORSES GOVERNMENT FOCUS ON LAW AND ORDER

The 8th Lagos State Executive-Legislative Parley with the theme “Legislative and Administrative Reforms for Social Changes” has fully endorsed the focus of the State Government on the enforcement of law and order, and the need for all stakeholders to support the state’s position paper on the proposed Constitution amendment.
In a communiqué issued at the end of the parley which took place at the Golden Tulip Hotel, Festac Town, it was agreed that the progress so far recorded by the State Government is substantially attributable to an active process of law, legislative resolutions as well as administrative reforms, all of which must be further sustained for improved public service delivery.
It was also agreed that since democracy has empowered the people not only to become more aware of their rights, but also emboldened them to express it; leaders must promote collective goals through a range of participatory initiatives to involve communities and the organized civil societies in decision-making.
The communiqué also stated that it is essential for Lagos State to have a strong  voice in the current debate on constitutional amendment and the well-articulated position paper submitted by the state government should be supported by  all concerned.
Participants at the parley included Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola (SAN), his deputy, Hon. Adejoke Orelope-Adefulire, Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Adeyemi Ikuforiji, members of the Lagos State House of Assembly, State Executive Council, and members as well as the leadership of the Action Congress of Nigeria.
