Gov Sanwo-Olu calls for religious tolerance among Lagos residents
Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has called for religious tolerance among residents of the state, especially among religious leaders.
The governor made the appeal on Wednesday at the Lagos State House of Assembly end of the year thanksgiving/Christmas outreach held at the Assembly Complex, Alausa, Ikeja.
Sanwo-Olu said, “Let me use this occasion to appeal to all our spiritual leaders not to relent in praying for our dear state and country for God’s peace and tranquillity to continue to reign, for the prayers of the righteous availed much. There should be religious tolerance among residents of the state, especially among religious leaders.”
“As we prepare for the general elections in 2023, we pray that our aspirations for the state and our leader, former Governor of the Centre of Excellence, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu would receive uncommon favour of God.”
In his remarks, the Speaker of the House, Mudashiru Obasa, said there were positive projections in favour of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
“Today, we talk greatly of our dear Lagos and how it has evolved since 1999. We today celebrate the successes achieved by the state. But we have Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, who sacrificed and created the direction for development and progress, started the foundation and began the structure upon which successive administrations have built.”
“That same Asiwaju is ready to lead Nigeria away from our usual challenges.”
