The Lagos state governor-elect, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has made a fresh vow not to disappoint the people of Lagos state.
Naija News reports that Sanwo-Olu promised to deliver the mandate of the people that staked their trust at the ballot to vote him as governor-in-waiting of the state.
The Lagos state governor-elect made the vow on Sunday during a Thanksgiving Service organized in his honour by Saint Andrew’s Anglican Church, Okepopo, Lagos.
The thanksgiving service was organised to celebrate his victory at the just concluded gubernatorial polls.
According to him; “to whom much is given, much more is definitely expected. The twenty million people that voted us in are expecting so much from us and we cannot afford to let them down.”
Preaching earlier, the Missioner and Bishop of Lagos Anglican Communion, Revd Humphrey Olumakaiye admonished the governor-elect to uphold the virtue of humility which the cleric noted is a key to opening one’s way to the heart of God who honours the humble to the despise of the proud at heart.
Olumakaiye tutored Sanwo-Olu, saying “if you serve the people diligently, selflessly and dedicatedly, they will serve and honour you forever.”
The first awaiting first lady of the state, Claudiana Ibijoke, the deputy governor-elect, Dr. Femi Hamzat and his wife, Oluremi were also present at the Thanksgiving service.
