He thanked the Itesiwaju Ipinle Eko Vanguard for their tireless effort to mobilize 5 Million votes for the Lagos State Governor continuity in 2019. "PVC is our power for Lagos state prosperity yonder 2019," he said.

“To all my Muslim brothers and sisters, I just want to use this opportunity to greet all of you that as we commence the Ramadan month and with all the lectures we have heard, we are doing this to be in tune with Allah and to be in sync with the kind of supplication that we want to give and we know 30 days out of 365 days are not enough to really show our total submission to Allah.
“What I just want to say is that the important thing in all these 30 days that we are going to have the Ramadan is to show love to ourselves, also show love to our neighbors and also to mobilized for the Continuity of good Governance in Lagos State.

Hon. Seyi Bamigbade, State Coordinator of Itesiwaju Ipinle Eko Vanguard, also said,  “You need to love yourself first before you can even show love to another person. So, when we have in excess, we must show the attitude of gratitude to be able to give to others because somebody else has over provided for us,” the State Coordinator said.

He said since Governor Akinwunmi Ambode assumed office, the guiding philosophy of his administration had been about inclusion and to positively touch lives, just as he admonished Muslims to imbibe the spirit of giving selflessly to others at all times.
“Beyond Ramadan, we must also show the attitude of giving at all times; that is the philosophy of his government; that is the practice the Governor have been doing in the last three years; the Governor is touching the poor and touching our people. Please collect your PVC, he urged.

“There are people who are suffering and that is why he is doing projects that are people-oriented; that is why he’s going to areas that have never been touched before; that is why he went into Ayobo, Akute, Badagry, Epe and places that have not been touched and that is the whole essence of why Allah has brought us on earth."

In his lecture on importance of Good Governance, Chairman, Council of Imams and Alfas (Clerics), Imam Semiu Khidir Olojeola, said almighty Allah, through the month, was calling on Muslims to learn the spirit of piety and service relationship with Him.

“What we need in this country is a leader who will stand up for the truth, who will stand up for credibility, who will stand up for what is important not for religion, not ethnicity. Your Excellency, we are really proud of you.”

He commended Governor Ambode for always being on the field to monitor progress of work on the infrastructural projects across the State, saying the development had resulted in placing the State on sound pedestal for growth.
