As Christians all over the world celebrate Christmas in commemoration of the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ on Friday, December 25, 2020, I, congratulate all Christians, and the entire residents of our Council Area, as well as Lagosians in general.
As we all know, Christmas festivity calls for celebrations of some sort because of its significance in Christendom but given the precarious situation the entire world has found itself, no thanks to the second wave of the ravaging deadly disease, as is being advised that while celebrating the event, people should be modest as exemplified by Jesus Christ.
Strict adherence to laid down safety protocols on prevention of the spread of COVID-19 disease such as: maintaining personal hygiene, constant handwashing, use of hand sanitizers, wearing of face masks, observing social distancing, avoidance of non essential travel and the likes, are to be observed as it’s also been reported that the rate of spread of the new strain of the virus is faster.
Let us use this period of the festival to pray for a quick end to this global health
concerns and, also, seek the face of God to stem all manners of insecurity bedevelling our nation, while we also take personal responsibility to protect ourselves and others by refraining from act capable of jeopardizing the current peace and tranquillity being enjoyed in our dear local government area and Lagos State at large.
A retrospective look at the events in the outgoing year, requires a thankful heart for the mercy and grace to be alive to testify to God’s goodness.
My administration is exceedingly grateful to the leadership of our great party, APC, party members, all associations, including our vibrant Youths, royal fathers, market men and women and, the entire residents across the local government area for their unflinching support and cooperation in our efforts to provide good governance thus far.
As we march on in the New Year, let me assure you that we shall not relent in providing more impactful service for the good people of our Council Area, while I urge on all and sundry to further support Mr. Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s administration T.H.E.M.E.S Agenda.
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and Prosperous New Year in advance.
