The governor who was on a working visit to the state secretariat, Alausa, Ikeja, addressed the workers, who came out in large numbers to welcome him at the office of the Head of Service.

The governor expressed his appreciation to the workers for supporting his administration, saying he had been part and parcel of them, even as urged them to do more to “serve all Lagosians.”
