Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, has appealed to Lagosians to bear with the government over the lingering shortage of fuel and power across the state.
In a statement issued on Wednesday by the State’s Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde, the Governor said Lagos State consumes more than 40 per cent of the fuel and energy needs of the country and therefore appreciates that the impact of the scarcity would be felt more in the state.
He urged residents to remain calm, orderly and law-abiding as government is doing everything possible within its power to find an immediate solution to the crisis.
According to the statement, Governor Ambode says he shares the pain and discomfort of Lagosians and assures them that President Muhammadu Buhari is deeply touched by the situation and is working round the clock to alleviate the suffering of the people.
