Says “It’s a clarion call to the governor to continue his good works for the State”
Rev. Solomon Aderigbigbe Adegbolagun, the National President of the Centre for Righteous Living, (CRIL), a faith based non~governmental organisation has felicitated with the Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Olusola Sanwoolu on his re~election in the just concluded and keenly contested election, to usher him into his second term in office.
Governor Sanwoolu by the result of the Governorship election conducted by the Independent Electoral Commission of March 18, 2023 and the results released on Sunday, was set to go for his second term in office come May 29, 2023.
According to Rev. Adegbolagun who is also the President, Last Commandment Ministry and former Chairman Lagos State Christian Pilgrims Welfare Board, the Governor’s hard earned victory was a well deserved one, and it means a clarion call to the governor to continue his good works for the state.
“With the overwhelming expression of supports with the people’s votes, it is a call for more works. It is an expression by the people both to appreciate you and call for more service. It is a belief and trust in your competence and capability to do more. We believe you are more than capable, you are equal to the task.
“Our prayer is that God will continue to give you the strength, the wisdom, knowledge and understanding to accomplish your lofty goals for the state,” he prayed.
The Christian leader, concerned about the heat generated by the election also called on the re~elected governor to make sure that he brings all groups in the state under a unified umbrella for peace and tranquillity, like he did in his first term.
Rev. Adegbolagun also drew the attention of the re elected Governor to the needs of the masses, as well as those in the grass roots noting that as the state grows corporately, the residents must also grow individually in terms of their welfare and personal growth and development.
He however, took the advantage to correct the impression alluding the victory of Labour Party in the Presidential Election to the Igbos and Youths.
“Governor Sanwo-Olu himself correctly analysed the outcome of the election to first the Muslim-Muslim ticket. Bola Ahmed Tinubu lost Lagos State because the Church rose up with Holy anger by asking her members to vote out APC. Lagos has largely Christian population and this played out in the outcome of the Presidential Election in Lagos. This also played out in the North Central where we have far more devoted Christians than the Southern States.”
Rev. Adegbolagun, an advocate of righteousness in government and leadership therefore called on the Church “to leverage on this successful impact on raising competent, Godly, and caring Leaders.”
He also appealed, “In effect, our Igbo brethren shouldn’t be crucified for a sin they didn’t commit. However this doesn’t say that Igbos didn’t massively vote for their own. The validity of this is seen in the Governorship Election when the Church pulled her support for Sanwoolu who is one of her own.
“I therefore appeal to all not to antagonise our Igbo brethren in Lagos. They are mostly Christians and they voted also for Sanwo-Olu.
He also took the advantage to appeal to those that lost out in the contest to accept the results of the election in good faith, and allow peace to reign as they continue to prepare themselves for better opportunities in the future.
