Hardship: Nigeria will come out stronger – Sanwo-Olu

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has said that Nigeria would come out stronger from its current economic challenges.

He said this on Tuesday, when Bishop Stephen Adegbite, newly appointed Secretary of the Nigerian Christian Pilgrims Commission, NCPC, paid him a courtesy visit in his office.

Sanwo-Olu, represented by the deputy, Dr
Obafemi Hamzat, appealed to residents to be calm, as the government continues to work out the modalities of the palliative measures to alleviate the current economic hardship.

“We appeal to our people to be calm and patient with us; Nigeria is injured and it’s currently going through a surgical operation; it will come out of this stronger.

“Our children will be better for it. Our goal is to build the largest logistic hub, which will allow us to stop dealing with middlemen.

“We have our father in person of President Bola Tinubu guiding us at every step of the way and we are focused on the success of the state,” he said.

He restated the importance of both churches and mosques to the development of the state.

On his part, the Bishop commended Sanwo-Olu and Hamzat for maintaining a good relationship.

He also praised the state on good governance.

“We don’t have unnecessary rivalry between the two offices and I want to commend you two for that. Lagos will be that mega city that we all wish for it to be.

“People win second term and they don’t do anything, but reverse is the case in Lagos State; this shows the level of commitment of the government to its people.

“Charity they say, begins from home. Lagos State is my first point of visit since I was named the secretary of NCPC.

“I’m grateful to our president for his support for pilgrimage programme for the past 24 years,” he said.

DAILY POST reports that Adegbite was the Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Lagos State chapter, before bagging his new appointment.
