Why Lagos is experiencing global recognition, by Ambode
He said the state should be thankful for the numerous achievements and growth so far recorded.
Speaking at the annual special thanksgiving service of the state government held at Lagos House in Alausa, Ikeja, the governor said it was evidently clear that God had been faithful to Lagos in making the modest successes recorded possible.
Besides, Ambode said as the nation prepared for elections in 2019, it was important for Nigerians to pray for peaceful conduct of the exercise to facilitate continuity of development and good governance.
In his sermon, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, emphasised the need for people to
continually appreciate God, saying doing such always help to complete prayers.
Citing Acts 16: 25-26, Adeboye who was represented by his Special Assistant, Pastor Idowu Iluyomade, said thanksgiving also had the ability to move God to action, urging the people to imbibe the act of giving thanks in all situations.
Among dignitaries who attended the service are Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and his wife, Dolapo; former Lagos State governors – Brig- Gen. Mobolaji Johnson (rtd), Alhaji Lateef Jakande, Rr. Admiral Ndubuisi Kanu (rtd); governorship candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC) in the State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu and leading Christian clerics in the state.
