The governor of Lagos state, Mr. Akinwumi Ambode yesterday disclosed that it is not easy managing the 24 million people in Lagos, even as he attributed the success, prosperity and developmental strides of his administration in the last three years to God.
He stated this at a thanksgiving service held at the Lagos House, Alausa, to commemorate his third year anniversary in office with the theme, “Praise His Majesty.”
The governor expressed optimism that the success recorded would further sustain the state in years to come, saying, “It has not been easy with the complexity of managing 24 million people; there is something driving it, and in all situations, we are grateful to God.
“He has been a source of joy to us in the state and the country in general,” Ambode said, adding that “this day is significant in the history of the state. It is also to celebrate the prosperity the state is known for.
“On May 29, we will be three years on the stable of this task and there is no way we would have found ourselves with this level of progress without some supernatural hands.
“With this, I give thanks to God. It is not possible to put up a plan and it works out; you should know that there is a source making it work, God.
On his promise to residents in the next one year, the governor assured that his administration would continue to render more services as it had done in the last three years.
“For me, the last three years have been very eventful and fruitful; you can see remarkable progress going on in the length and breadth of Lagos.
“So we can only do better, then render more services to ‘Lagosians’ in the next one year,” he said.
