Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Wednesday, emphasized on the importance of teamwork, saying that all hands must be on deck to see that quality projects are delivered by contractors.
He then charged members of Community Development Association to serve as voluntary supervisors to ongoing projects across the State.
Speaking at the year 2019 Community Day Celebration which held at the Police College Parade Ground, Ikeja, Sanwo-Olu described the CDAs and CDCs as the real growth engines in the state.
“Our community development; the CDAs and the CDCs are the real engines of growth. They are the owners of all our interventions in government. They are the ones that own every intervention. Everything we are building is for the community, it’s for the Local government.
“So, it is important that the Local
takes ownership of these development initiatives. We need to ensure that once we’ve sent contractors out, you should monitor them and ensure that they do and deliver quality service so that the schools, the hospitals, and the roads that those contractors are building meet the standard that is required of them.
“You have to serve as monitors and ensure that the right proportion of things needed are used. You have the right to present your complaints to any contractor once you discover that the work is not properly done,” the governor said
