Fashola reminded the workers that he was addressing them for the last time, stressing that it was their dedication to service that won Lagos state the various accolades.

He thanked the public servants for cooperating with him, adding that achievements recorded couldn’t have been possible without their input and that he was proud to be the head of the team.

“It has been a pleasant journey which is on its final curve into its eighth year, I’ve enjoyed working with you. You’ve shown impossible means nothing, here impossible is the excuse for not trying, and we have become the team to beat. There is competition, other states have woken up, they want to see what Lagos is doing, what they do not tell you is that they want to overtake Lagos.
“The competition is now close, we must continue to innovate and raise the stakes for ourselves, and we must never lie at ease”.

He noted that Lagos holds the key to the growth of the African continent, hence the state cannot afford to rest on its oars but seek to better its achievements year in year out.

“Some people believe that if Lagos makes it, Africa will make it. If we continue to believe that nobody is superior to us, no goal will be beyond our reach. Being in the public service is a real privilege to serve. We constitute less one percent of the 21 million people in Lagos, yet the privilege is that we decide how the society will get water, where there would be a new road. Never abuse the privilege, never underestimate the value and impact”.

Earlier, State Head of Service, Mrs. Oluseyi Williams thanked the governor for commitment and support to the general welfare and well-being of public servants in the state just as she pledged more dedicated service to the upliftment of the state.
