The Bishop of the Diocese of Lagos West, Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Rt. Rev. James Olusola Odedeji, has urged the governor-elect of Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu to overlook political differences and steer the state’s affairs with fairness.

The Bishop of the Diocese of Lagos West, Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Rt. Rev. James Olusola Odedeji, has urged the governor-elect of Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu to overlook political differences and steer the state’s affairs with fairness.

The cleric, who wants Sanwo-Olu to run an inclusive government, said he should become everybody’s governor and not be one-sided. “As a leader, I wouldn’t feel that everybody would vote for me if there were an election for my office. But now that I am there, whether I am voted by somebody or not, I shouldn’t see anyone as an enemy. So, whether you accept me or not is your own problem, but I will accept you and do the needful to ensure nobody is left out,” he said.

He urged the Federal Government to use the opportunity of second term to improve the lives of Nigerians. He said: “I want to appeal to government. Four years is not a joke, so that what has been happening will not repeat itself during the second term. Let our country be referred to as one that is progressive and not stagnant.”
