He said the 377 projects would bring more dividends of democracy closer to the people, which is one of the goals of coming to power.

Gbajabiamila noted that the Governor’s action has once again proven that the All Progressives Congress (APC) led government at both the federal and state levels was ready to impact positively on the lives of the people.

He said when completed, the 377 projects, the first of its kind in the state, would make Lagos go further ahead of its peers nationwide.

On the N5bn support capital, the Speaker said Governor Sanwo-Olu has shown that he has the interest of those in the education sector, both in government and in the private sector, at heart.

Gbajabiamila said the programmes embarked on by the government of Lagos State since the beginning of the COVID 19 pandemic give up of brighter days ahead. 

He called on the Governor to ensure the implementation supervision of these initiatives for the betterment of the intended beneficiaries.
