Herein lies our strength today I ask you that we join hands as we move Lagos and Nigeria to a higher level on the wind of change”, the Governor said in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Habib Aruna.
Stressing that his victory at the April 11 elections was the handiwork of God and the support of the people, Governor Ambode said he was committed to using the mandate to change the lives of people in Lagos. “This would not have been possible but for the love, mercy, and divine favour of our God. I thank you for all your support particularly towards peaceful elections that was held across the nation.

“I must commend your bold initiatives and numerous successes over the years. The church has made significant progress, in improving the society. Your various intervention projects which cut across every strata of human and social development and is highly commendable. For instance your school intervention project to equip 500 primary school libraries across the 57 LGs is a case in point.
