LAGOS: Sanwo-Olu tasks residents on providing information to check insecurity

CHRISTIANS faithfuls as well as other citizens have been urged to provide necessary information that will assist government and security agencies in the state in ensuring that safety  and security of citizens are not compromised. 

This appeal was made by Governor Babajide Sanwoolu, at the 46th annual convention of The Apostolic Church held at its LAWNA Territotory’s Headquarters in Alapere, Ketu. 

Represented by his Special Adviser on Chieftaincy Matters, Prince Bayo Osiyemi, Sanwo-Olu expressed his administration’s appreciation to the citizens for their cooperation and support in discharging the mandate given to him since assuming office.

Sanwo-Olu pointed at the developmental strides of the state in areas of education, health and massive roads construction across the state, promising that he would soon complete the mass transit rail transportation system from Okokomaiko to Marina  and from Yaba to Agbado.

While expressing his satisfaction with the security situation in the state, he called on religious organisations to intensify ceaseless prayers for the continuing peaceful atmosphere, and for the other parts of the country to surmount prevailing problems of insecurity and banditry there.

The governor called for greater vigilance among the citizens to ensure that the state remains safe and secure for government’s developmental projects to be completed on schedule.

Appreciating the state government for the visible developmental projects across the state, as well as its assistance to the church, the Vice President of the Apostolic Church as well as the Territorial Chairman, Dr. E.S. Awojide, urged the governor to fulfil his promise to provide pedestrian bridge in front of the church for seamless movement of people across the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway in Ikosi-Ketu.

Awojide assured the state government of continued support in the presence of the massive congregation which included the chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Bishop Stephen Adegbite and the National President of the Apostolic Church, Nigeria, Pastor (Dr) S.E. Igwe.
