Inclusion: Path To A New Nation, By Akinwunmi Ambode

On Tuesday (May 8, 2018), Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, delivered the Convocation Lecture at University of Lagos.


 Excerpt: 

"In 1984, I attended a convocation much like today’s. On that day, I sat where you, now sit. I was an eager yet apprehensive young man set to graduate at 21. Although ready to tackle the world and make my mark, I was also a bit uncertain about what that world and life would bring.


"We, as Nigerians, have a choice. We can follow the path of folly or we can follow the road to our appointed destiny.

"There is widespread consensus that too much power sits in the center. We can correct this imbalance by reallocating power and responsibilities between the States and Federal government by amending the list of exclusive and concurrent powers and duties...

"Unless we join in concerted effort to help each other toward a better more united Nigeria, we all shall fail in our different ways.

"We are linked together in common destiny. Thus let us work together in common purpose in order to make that destiny, the one we truly seek, which is an inclusive and forever just and prosperous Nigeria."
