Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has said that Nigerians cannot afford to get it wrong in 2023 because of the future of the country.
He was represented by his deputy, Dr. Obafemi Kadri Hamzat, who stated this, yesterday, at the 2022 Eidul-Adha celebration organised by the first family of Lagos State.
He emphasises that Bola Ahmed Tinubu is the right choice for the presidency in 2023 because he had built bridges across Nigeria, adding that the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate has politically influenced people across different regions and ethnic groups in the country.
According to him, parents must teach their wards godly values and instil in them principles of obedience, loyalty and patience. He also admonished residents to be loyal and obedient to the state and country.
Meanwhile, the First Lady of Lagos State, Dr. Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu, noted that “the spiritual exercise being celebrated yearly exemplifies the virtue of love, faith and obedience”.
The governor, who was the special guest of honour at the grand finale of the 2022 edition of the Ojude Oba festival, said that the people of Ijebuland at home and in Diaspora have a lot to be proud of, as they showcase their rich culture and history to the world.
He said “that the Ijebu people must never lose sight of the unifying element the yearly celebration of the Ojude Oba festival provides. He said that celebration like Ojude Oba reminds Yoruba that evil will never triumph over good”
Whereas, the Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, has assured indigenes of the state of his commitment to complete all ongoing projects and embark on new ones. He reiterated his administration’s commitment to reviving the Olokola Deep Seaport project in the Waterside area of the state.
He said that the seaport project, located in Ogun Waterside Local Council, would be completed and inaugurated by his administration.
“Let me formally announce the revival of the Olokola Seaport in the Ogun Waterside area of the state. This is in line with our transport master plan and the promise I made to the people and the Awujale of Ijebuland that the seaport will be built in his lifetime and we will commission it,” he said.
