Ambode Lagosians – No Tribal Or Religious Discrimination In This State
The ever-dynamic Governor of Lagos State, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode has assured everyone living in the mega city to freely go ahead and excel to the level where God has planned for each one as his government will not hinder any one through tribal or religious discrimination.
The Governor said this when he hosted the executive members of the Federation of Muslim Women Association of Nigeria (FOMWAN), at the Lagos House at the Lagos House, Ikeja on Thursday. Ambode said he acknowledge the large number of religious organisations within the state and very proud that Lagos is home for all. He promised that Lagos State government would continue to respect the constitution of the Nigeria which allows for freedom of association. His words:
“In Lagos, it is very clear that there is heavy presence of religious organization, Lagos is a cosmopolitan state, we do not discriminate, and we are set out to obey the constitution of this country. And in doing so, free citizens of Lagos State should be given the chance to excel to where God has planned for them to be”.
“We do not discriminate based on religion, we would not discriminate based on tribe, we are not going to discriminate based on where you come from. It is not the will of God and we would not practice it. I have read some literature about you, I am very happy to associate with this association because you have done things that government should ordinarily do. And it is not about women, it’s about you, and it’s about the future of Nigeria.”
Should Ambode be given a Second Term?
