Nigerians have been advised to step forward into the New Year with a renewed hope, love, selflessness and cooperation among various ethnic groups.

The advice was given by the Executive Chairman of Itire-Ikate LCDA, Hon. (Dr) Ahmed Olanrewaju Apatira, in his New Year message to Nigerians.

While promising Nigerians, particularly, his constituents a better deal, he urged the voting population to collect their permanent voter card and vote for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and other candidates of the party in the coming election.

The message read, “With gratitude to Almighty God, I greet you all and welcome you to the New Year.

It is our prayer and hope that the year, 2023 will bring joy and prosperity to every household and communities in Lagos and Nigeria.

As experience has shown, there is no better moment than the end of one calendar year and the beginning of another to reflect on how well we have realized our aspirations and discharged our duties in the just concluded year.

In addition to reflection, this period also presents us with a perfect opportunity to chart a path for the New Year. It is expected that our learning from the shortcomings of the past year will provide a solid foundation for the successes of the New Year.

My good people of Itire-Ikate LCDA, I am deeply grateful for the confidence you have reposed in our party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) and my administration through the ballot box, and for the privilege of being here at this time.

Our administration came into office with high hopes, fully determined to justify the expectations and the confidence of the overwhelming majority of residents, who had given us a sweeping victory at the polls.

Looking back, there is no doubt that the task has begun in earnest, and the evidence of progress so far recorded is all around us, even in the face of the challenging realities of governance confronting us daily.

The welfare of the people, it has been said, is the supreme law in politics. It is therefore my pleasure to inform you that our proposed 2023 budget is a painstakingly prepared.

It is a people-oriented document that summarizes our administration’s plan and outlines our path to achieving the greatest good for the greatest number of people.

As we begin the New Year, I would like to reiterate our vision for the good people of Itire-Ikate LCDA– pertaining to critical areas of governance namely: infrastructural renewal, Health and Environment; Education, youth and women empowerment, welfare and security

Fellow residents, from the feedback I have consistently received from you, it is clear that the above mentioned critical areas of governance ranks very high on the list of issues that concern you.

Our administration identifies strongly with these concerns, and It is for this reason that we will consistently redouble our efforts in the quest to significantly improve the wellbeing of the people

Let me use this opportunity to appeal for your patience and understanding in this regard and I also want to assure you that we have a robust plan and timetable in place to ensure every part of our communities gets the dividends of democracy

Fellow residents, there is so much to look forward to this New Year. I solicit your full cooperation and support as we take the first steps into 2020. Together we can achieve the council area of our dreams .

Let us join hands and usher in 2023 with hope, confidence in the knowledge that brighter days are ahead of us, in spite of whatever challenges the New Year might hold.

We will not retreat from the challenges; instead, we will use them as stepping stones to success and to true greatness.

On behalf of the Government of Itire-Ikate LCDA, I wish you a happy and prosperous 2023 and the most abundant and delightful blessings of the New Year.
