LAGOS PILGRIMS PRAY FOR AMBODE'S SECOND TERM IN OFFICE


Members of Itesiwaju Ipinle Eko Vanguard, group mobilizing 5Million Votes for the continuity of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode beyond 2019 in office, led scores of Muslim pilgrims from Lagos State at the weekend to hold special prayers for the Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode at Kaabah in Mecca, Saudi Arabia for the success of the present administration and his continuity beyond 2019.

The prayers led by Sheikh Semiu Olojeola, the President of Immas and Alfas Council of Nigeria, saw pilgrims under the aegis of the Itesiwaju Ipinle Eko Vanguard seize the period of the Lesser Hajj to pray for the continuity  in office of Ambode-led administration. Oloojeoola  said the first term of Governor Ambode was characterised by series of laudable projects including improved road infrastructure, schools’ upgrade, improving the healthcare sector, and massive investment in the security apparatus in the State.

He said they decided to utilise the period of the Ramadan to commit the progress of the State into the hands of Allah. He also expressed optimism that with Governor Ambode on the saddle as helmsman, the State is bound to grow in leaps and bounds in the midst of economic challenges across the country “There is still a lot of work to be done in the State, but Governor Ambode has started on a very sound footing despite the economic challenges in the country.

Many States are finding it hard to cope with the paucity of funds, but thank God for Ambode, Lagos is one of the very few States which has continued to rise despite the economic outlook. This is the First term and we believe by the grace of Almighty Allah, the plans he has for the next second term will come to pass. With Ambode, Itesiwaju Ipinle Eko is assured,” they said. The group also used the occasion to pray for continued peaceful co-existence in the State as well as the overall progress of Nigeria.
