CHANGE IN OUR TIME
If you have a well behaved child, it is good let the World know about her, that is the adage of our African mothers. We have a good governor in Lagos state, new happenings in Lagos these days shows that we have a good child and the world should know, the new face of Lagos can turn news reporter to a blatant liar!
Sweeper vehicles in Lagos, I do not mean toys or vacum cleaners, I am so thrilled that I intend to bring my mother who lives in my village to Lagos in order to have a glimpse of thhis before she finally leaves mother earth.
It was on my way to the office this morning when I saw some brand new buses plying FESTAC Town road, curiosity took the better part of me as I stretched my head through the window to get a glimpse at “tear rubber” (brand new) vehicles. To my greatest amazement, they are beautiful street sweepers, glittering like water fetched from early in the morning stream.
The World must know that new things are coming the way of Lagosians! Sweepers vehicles not women sweepers in masquerades uniform covering faces to avoid being recognized by familiar faces but new vehicles sweeping our streets, we are beginning a new journey, may these never seize.
I can proudly invite foreigners to visit Lagos, I will not be ashamed, it is not as if all is done but women threshing palm kernel leaves with one leg at a time, they do not jump out with two legs.
It is a normal occurence these days to see Waste Management vehicles parade the street of Lagos to pick bins of the rich and the poor alike just with the payment of a token. Some people said these were plans of the former governor but it made no difference to me as long as they are implemented by him.
Nigerians are used to new leaders abandoning the on-going projects of former ones and the resources wasted in order to award such contracts to their relations. It is a normal occurence to Launch a completed project four times just to deceive the people they are working, but for once my friends, I have no reservations about Lagos State. A progressive is in power in this State.
