Governor Akinwunmi Ambode is indeed not pleased with the rising spate of kidnapping in Lagos state.
He is not only talking tough, he is also taking tough actions.
All illegal structures and shanties built on Lagos waterfront will be demolished.
The Lagos governor believes the illegal occupation of the waterfronts could be aiding and abetting criminal elements who now operate on the state’s inland waterways.
Governor Ambode raised this concern when he visited the uncompleted Ilubirin Housing project in the state.
He disclosed the government’s intention to partner with the private sector and scale-up the process to meet the housing need of Lagosians.
