Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has urged Christians and Lagosians to support his efforts to deliver the dividends of democracy effectively.

Speaking at an interdenominational thanksgiving service in honour of his administration at Deeper Life Bible Church, Gbagada, Lagos, yesterday, the governor noted: “If you want me to finish well, members of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) have a great role to play.

“I have four years to spend. I have spent 19 days out of 1,460 days, meaning that I have 1,441 days left. I will be answerable to everyone after the 1,441 days what I have done with my time.

“If we cannot litter the house of God, we must not litter Lagos. We must be clean in whatever we do, and that is why we came up with zero tolerance for waste management.”

Like one of his predecessors, Babatunde Fashola, the governor seems to be a stickler to traffic rules.

“If you want me to finish well, don’t drive against the traffic: comply and obey the traffic rules. The acting chief judge has told me that he would establish small courts to judge offenders who would serve sentences like coming out of the car and cleaning the gutters.

“We have made pronouncement on waste management. We are also working to fix portholes in Lagos.

“We are going to work on security in the next few days as regards issues around cultism and kidnapping. Lagos is home to all of us,” he added.

In his sermon, the chairman of CAN, Lagos chapter, Prof. Alexander Bamgbola, urged the governor to rule Lagos in the fear God.

According to the apostle, life is a race. “It starts in the day you are born and ends in the day one dies.”

He urged the governor to serve his generation by the will of God.
He also gave some tips to the governor on how to finish the race well, such as running in the fear of God, running humbly, running deliberately to win, courageously, without worldly distraction, and focusing on eternity.
