Ahead of the independence day celebration, Lagos State governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-olu has said expressed optimism over the possibility of things getting better.
Sanwo-Olu made this remark on Sunday while speaking at a special thanksgiving service held at Chapel of Christ The Light, Alausa, Ikeja, an event organised by the state government to commemorate Nigeria’s 59th Independence Day Celebration.
The governor, who was represented by his wife, Dr. (Mrs.) Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu said there was a strong need for Nigerians to cohabit in love and be extremely tolerant of others to pave the way for the peace of God to reign which in turn would ensure the transformation of the country.
Her words, “Despite our challenges, we still have hope that in our lifetime, people will be rushing to Nigeria like Dubai and America.
“The truth is that there is hope for Nigeria and this reminds me of Martin Luther King Jr. who had a dream for America. For Nigeria, it is possible as well and it is going to happen in our lifetime.”
The governor added that it was important for the people to be reminded of the powerful desire for peace, unity and the need to sustain and deepen democracy, adding that Nigeria had so much to be thankful and grateful for irrespective of the differences as the country was already on the right path to greatness.
