Ambode- The Lagos Of Our Dreams: This Is What Lagos Will Be Like By 2025

The Lagos state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, on Tuesday declared what Nigeria’s number one city will be like by 2025.

Ambode, made the submission at the gathering of captains of industry and top government officials at a programme tagged ‘LagosMeansBusiness’.

He stressed that government is consequently expected to explore the economic potentials of the state to meet the needs of the citizenry, adding that Lagos will be Africa’s model megacity, a global, economic and financial hub that is safe, secure, functional and productive.

The governor also stated that almost half of the Lagos state Internally Generated Revenue is used for the payment of salaries, including pensions and gratuities.

He said: “This event presents a platform for all concerned stakeholders to chat a path for the future of Lagos without any sentiment.

“This administration has decided to focus on three key areas of Power, Education and transport as a way of affecting other sectors of the society indirectly.

“The challenges of Lagos is enormous and it demands a strategic and proactive approach.’’

The governor maintained that Lagos needs structured corporate social responsibility targeted at initiatives that would be mutually beneficial to private sector and government.

The government, he said, would continue to support private sector, pleading that, “We are not true citizens until we become responsible tax payers.”

Ambode assured every Lagos resident that he would make their taxes work for them with a transparent and incorruptible government with good value for taxes paid.

The governor disclosed that taxable adult in Lagos are eight million out of which only 700,000 pay taxes.

He said: “We will tax those who are rich so as to protect them. That is what property tax which law was enacted in 2002 is saying. After 17 years, the law had not been reviewed.”
