Nigerians should begin to proffer solutions to numerous challenges in the country.
Governor Akinwunmi Ambode who spoke in Alausa, Ikeja, during the visit of the participants from the National Defence College Course 24 on a ‘Geo-Strategic Study’ to the state on Monday, charged the visitors to come out with suggestions on how governance could be more beneficial to the people.
The Governor expressed delight at the visit of the participants, who were senior military and para-military officers, saying his administration was receptive to new ideas and would also welcome suggestions on how to improve Internally Generated Revenue in the state.
Ambode, who was represented by the Permanent Secretary in the Cabinet Office, Mrs. Folasade Ogunnaike, expressed hope that at the end of the various presentations by the team to some local government areas and agencies, they would have been well educated on the subject matter of their tour.
Earlier, the leader of the team, Brig. Gen. Mahe Bashir, said the programme was ongoing in nine other states, adding that it was aimed at discovering socio-political and economic life of the people and how best to improve their IGR.
