Imbibe good qualities, Lagos gov’s wife advises citizens


The wife of the Lagos State Governor, Dr Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu, has advised citizens to imbibe good qualities as one of the significant themes of the Christmas season.

The governor’s wife gave this advice, according to a statement on Sunday, during the annual Christmas outreach and thanksgiving service organised by the Lagos State Public Service Christian Fellowship, held at the Chapel of Christ the Light, Alausa, Ikeja.

Sanwo-Olu, who was represented by a member of the Committee of Wives of Lagos State Officials, Mrs Oyindamola Ogunsanwo, urged residents to also pray for the peaceful conduct of the general elections in 2023.

She said, “As we prepare for the major elections next year, I urge the people and the church to continue to hand over the affairs of this country to God. It is my fervent prayer that the peace of God that surpasses human comprehension will reign in Lagos State and Nigeria.


“The significance of this Christmas season is very important as it brings to the fore the need to remind ourselves of the virtues of love, kindness, tolerance, piousness and humility which Jesus Christ aptly personifies. Christmas celebration can only be impactful and meaningful if people imbibe such fine qualities and allow them to manifest in our lives in our daily interactions.”

On his part, the Lagos State Head of Service, Mr Hakeem Muri-Okunola, who was represented by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Home Affairs, Mrs Ololade Aina, said, “As implied by the theme, our gratitude and thanksgiving should, indeed, be without ceasing, being many, multifarious and multi-dimensional.”
