There is no gainsaying that the world awaits the greatness of our nation; and by our collective efforts, we will rise above all odds and take our rightful place in history.”
The governor of Lagos state, Sanwo-Olu also called on the citizens to refrain from politics of division and bitterness as the 2023 general elections somewhere around the corner.

“We must respect divergent opinions and respect the fact that the beauty of democracy lies in the fact that we will not all share the same ideological and political views. What we want, and what is not negotiable, is a better country.” He added
