The Lagos State Commissioner for Economic Planning and Budget, Mr. Samuel Egube, has disclosed that the present administration will soon unveil a 30-year development plan.
Egube, who revealed this during his guest appearance on ‘Lagos Today’, an LTV programme, to discuss the development stated that the plan is focused on providing for the teeming youths of the State.
He urged the youngsters to share, contribute and participate in the various developmental programmes, policies and projects of the State Government because they are beneficiaries, encouraging them to be law-abiding and always exhibit good morals.
Egube said the new developmental plan necessary the existing plan was to serve from Y2012 to Y2025 and will end soon, adding that the new plan is aimed at strategically positioning Lagos as the Economic and Social hub of Africa in the coming years.
According to him, the emphasis is to ensure that Lagos is seen as a clean, safe and secured city that will not just harness business growth but a place where every human being will desire to live, engage in businesses and thrive.
While urging Lagosians to key into the 30-year developmental plan, the Commissioner insisted that the vision and goals of the plan are attainable because the present administration has continued to successfully implement the policies and programmes outlined in the T.H.E.M.E.S. Agenda, such as the recently commissioned Agege Pen-Cinema Flyover and the various ongoing projects like the new Massey Children Hospital, the Red and Blue Rail lines among others.
Egube enjoined youths to shun every act of vandalism, thuggery and cultism which will not bring much development to the State, maintaining that nothing can be achieved in a hostile environment.
