LEGISREPORTS NG – The Senator representing Lagos Central Constituency in the Senate, Oluremi Tinubu on Wednesday organized a town hall meeting for her constituents as an avenue to interface with the people she is representing.
The 15 edition of the Lagos Central Senatorial District Town Hall meeting themed “New Chapter, Hope Renewed” was an avenue for Senator Tinubu to give an account of her stewardship and obtain feed-backs on their developmental needs.
The Lagos legislator urged her constituents to be committed to the All Progressives Congress drive to make Nigeria great again.
“This is the time for us to rededicate ourselves to get Nigeria to our “promised land” – it is time to differentiate the goat from the sheep and the wheat from the chaff. All hands have to be on deck to achieve that “new Nigeria” we voted for.” she said.
In giving account of her activities in the 8th Assembly, she assured her constituents that projects started since the 7th Assembly will be concluded.
“I have not been assigned a Committee yet, but I hope to give you more information that is concrete at the next Town Hall meeting when all the Committees would have been constituted.
“Some of our Constituency development projects for Lagos Central Senatorial District that we started in the 7th Senate are ongoing and receiving attention. They include the drug rehabilitation centre and Oke Ira Nla Model Market Ajah amongst others.
“In line with legislative practice and procedure, I have analyzed 2015 budget and extracted all projects and services to which funds are appropriated in Lagos Central Senatorial District to ensure such projects are implemented,” she said.
On the anti-corruption drive of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Senator Tinubu urged her constituents to turn a new leaf by shunning bribery and corruption. To the women, she admonished them to fight corruption from home by rejecting ‘proceeds of corruption from their husbands’.
Senator Oluremi Tinubu to date has sponsored three bills: to provide Social Security for Elderly Citizens; seek the Amendment of the Labour Act, to enhance employment opportunities for women, and; a Bill to provide Special Economic Assistance to Lagos State in view of its status as a former capital city and the commercial capital of Nigeria.
