As part of measures to advance development at the grassroots and engender active participation of the people at the local level in governance, the Lagos State Government, yesterday, unveiled a new television programme tagged, ‘Lagos Community Updates.’
Special Adviser to Governor Akinwunmi Ambode on Communities and Communications, Mr. Kehinde Bamigbetan, speaking at the unveiling at the State Secretariat, Alausa, explained that the programme, which is billed to commence next Monday, would serve as a veritable platform for people at the grassroots to get first-hand information about activities of government, and also serve as a feedback mechanism for government to know the plight of the people.
According to Bamigbetan, “The programme will also assist government and the private sector to know about the activities of Community Development Associations (CDAs) and Community Development Committees (CDCs) who have initiated projects on their own but require intervention to complete such projects.
“The programme is first to bring to public limelight the activities of CDAs in terms of their initiatives for self-help and the way they are taking ownership of the projects and programmes of Governor Ambode because the Governor has expressed his desire to partner with CDAs and CDCs in areas where they require support and collaboration.
