“So we encourage him. We appreciate the people of Lagos and we are glad that when we came in today, we saw economic activities, the resilience of Lagosians skipping in. That is quite commendable.
“We believe that Lagos will get back its groove and mobilise the nation,´´ said Bagudu, who is also the Governor of Kebbi State.

According to him, the government had listened to the youths and gave in to their demands.
“You are not alone; we support them. We want to give them the support of a united strong country, so that they can go into the world with pride.
“But they have seen how nobility of any course can be taken over by those who otherwise have agenda that are contrary to what they thought they are out to achieve,´´ Bagudu said.
“We want our young men and women to have fulfilling jobs and opportunities both locally and internationally. But this will take time with continuous engagement and dialogue,´´ the Progressive Governors Forum chairman said.
