Lagos Revives Annual Ministerial Briefing, To Announce Sanwo-Olu’s Achievements, Projects


LAGOS, Nigeria – Lagos State Government will, on April 23, begin its annual ministerial briefing – three years after it was suspended by the state government.

The annual briefing is a month-long programme where all ministries and agencies in the state brief the media on what they had done and achieved in the previous year, as well as other things they plan to achieve in the coming years.

While speaking at a briefing on Thursday, the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, said the state government decided to resuscitate the annual briefing, so as to intimate Lagosians on some projects Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu had done since he returned for a second time in office.

He added that this year’s briefing, which starts on Tuesday, April 23, and ends on May 28, is a prelude to marking one year anniversary of Sanwo-Olu’s return as governor for a second term in office, on May 29.

“At the ministerial briefing, we would inform Lagosians on what we had done in the last one year and other projects we are working on – such as the Lekki airport, the fourth mainland bridge, among other iconic projects,” Omotoso said.

“Each ministry will tell Lagosians what they have done and what to expect from them in another year,” he further said.

Omotoso expressed confidence on the readiness and ability of the commissioners and head of agencies to deliver at the briefing.

He added that the long break not withstanding, members of the press should expect a robust discussion with representatives of the Lagos State Government and feel free to ask whatsoever questions they so desire on grey areas of concern to them.

Omotoso equally hoped that the event would be professionally handled by bother parties and that at the end of the day, Lagosians would be better informed about what the state government was doing and still planning to do.
