While urging the body not to hesitate to bring forth ideas and innovations that can enhance the T.H.E.M.E.S Development Agenda of the State Government, Patunola-Ajayi revealed that the Ministry has continued to give the provision of waterfront infrastructure a priority with the construction of more jetties and channelisation of water routes to boost water transportation system in Lagos. 

She reiterated that, despite the numerous giant strides of the Sanwo-Olu Administration across all sectors, the State Government is not resting on its oars and still working assiduously for the growth of the State.
