Former Lagos state Governor and National Leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, on Thursday urged political leaders to provide good governance at the grassroots.
Tinubu spoke at the inauguration of the newly-constructed Itire-Ikate Local Government Secretariat in Surulere, Lagos.
“We must lift our people, lift them out of poverty, educate them to break the shackles of poverty and ignorance.
“We must free them from unemployment, provide them with basic amenities and give them hope for the future,” said Tinubu, who was represented by Mr Femi Pedro, a former Deputy Governor of Lagos State.
He said leaders should strive to address these challenges.
Tinubu urged council officials to carry out their duties in accordance with established ethics.
