Collective Responsibility, A Must For Societal Growth - Fashola
…Urges restraint, patience on the roads as winners emerge in 2012 Traffic Safety Advocacy competition
Jul 5, 2012 - Pupils drawn from primary and secondary schools in the state on Thursday displayed their vast knowledge about how the roads could be made friendlier for the physically challenged at the finals of the 2012 Be Road Friendly (BRF) Competition with Governor Babatunde Fashola (SAN) asserting that the way forward lies in having a responsible and collective leadership from everyone.
The Governor who spoke at the Adeyemi Bero Auditorium, Alausa venue of the event organised by the Lagos State School Traffic Safety Advocacy Programme added that this is not a time for finger pointing as to who should carry the can for the current state of things but to have a responsible leadership where everyone plays his part.
He noted that it would require the participation of every member of the community to build the kind of state that they want as well as ensure that the people build the kind of City- state where the children can go out in the same way the generation of children before them could safely go out.
The Governor said going by the content of the various presentations by the children they have spoken loudly and in unison that the parents are hurting them and are resolute about what they want in terms of road safety and would go to any length to achieve it.
He added that the question to the adults should be: "Do we want to be part of this or we want to be left behind by them?".
