Lagos Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode on Saturday attributed the high level of development, peaceful coexistence and stable economy enjoyed in Lagos State to God’s intervention.
Ambode made the assertion at the 2018 Lagos Marathon Praise in Lagos, organised by the Office of the Wife of the state Governor in collaboration with Jubilee Concept International in Lagos.
“The Lord is indeed worthy and will forever be praised for all He has done and will continue to do in our lives as a people,’’ Ambode, represented by his Special Adviser on Education,Obafela Bank-Olemoh said,
“As a Government, we give glory to God for His innumerable blessings and the good things He has made possible to happen in our state within three years of our administration.
“Each time I reflect on the level of development our state has experienced within this period, I come to the conclusion that this could not have been possible without God.
“I believe this gathering is divinely ordained and timely considering the approaching general elections in 2019 and the measure of help that we have received from God as a people and State.
“I also believe very strongly that as we engage in this marathon praise, we shall receive more grace and blessings from God,’’ he said.
