Lagos State government has said it would prioritise projects that will positively impact the well-being of residents, stressing that all ongoing projects would be completed before the expiration of the tenure.
Special adviser to the governor on Works, Dr Adekunle Olayinka and his counterpart on Infrastructure, Engr Olufemi Daramola, made the remark on Friday at a press briefing to commemorate the first year of the second term in office of the administration of Governor Sanwo-Olu and deputy, Dr Obafemi Hamzat, at Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos.
The state government officials also assured that the Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu will deliver on some of the on-going iconic projects soon.
