I will not disappoint Lagosians says Sanwo-Olu - ITREALMS

The governor-elect of Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has reiterated his promise not to betray the trust of Lagosians who voted him and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) into victory in the recent gubernatorial polls in Lagos State, reports ITREALMS.

He made the renewed avowal on Sunday during a Thanksgiving Service organized in his honour by Saint Andrew's Anglican Church, Okepopo, Lagos Island over his victory at the just concluded election.

Exuding deep appreciation to God over the electoral feat, the governor-elect yet concurred that the twenty million-strong Lagos populace expects lofty performance from him in continuation of developmental projects in all areas that have distinguished Lagos as the 'Centre of Excellence".

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."

Giving a semblance of a short sermon, Sanwo-Olu admonished the teeming congregation not to lose faith in the efficacy of prayer; adding that even when it seems prayer is tarrying for answer, people should adopt praising, which, Sanwo testified was also very potent in provoking God's speedy answers to hearted, fervent prayers.

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."

At the thanksgiving service with Sanwo were his wife, Claudiana Ibijoke, the deputy governor-elect, Dr. Femi Hamzat and his wife, Oluremi.
