The entire bishops of the Anglican Church of Nigeria have commended the performance of the Babajide Sanwo-Olu led administration in Lagos State for good governance and service to humanity.
The bishops gave the commendation when delegates of the Church paid a courtesy visit to Governor Sanwo-Olu at the Lagos House in Ikeja.
Speaking on behalf of the bishops, Most. Revd Henry Ndukuba who led the delegation hailed the performance of Governor Sanwo-Olu’s administration in fighting COVID-19 pandemic as well as securing lives and property of Lagosians.
“The time which we are in is a very difficult and challenging time to lead whether in the secular arena or even in the religious because of the numerous and enormous responsibilities and challenges that confront us, not only as individuals and families but more importantly as a nation.
“The time you (Governor Sanwo-Olu) have come to the position of leadership is not an easy one. And we thank God that you have distinguished yourself amongst your peers and you have demonstrated that which you carry has been people-focused and making sure that the necessary things are done for the security of lives and property.
“But more importantly, we admire you for your outstanding performance in fighting COVID-19 pandemic in this (Lagos) State. With all the problems and challenges around you, we have seen that your policy was people-centered. I think for the first time in our national history, the ordinary person; the common man on the streets received more attention in the projects you have executed.
“Indeed we are encouraged that you have taken up the mantle of leadership and you have led well. We are assuring you of our prayers,” he said.
Bishop Ndukuba, who commended Governor Sanwo-Olu for partnering with the Church in the welfare of the people, said the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) is committed to war against drug abuse in Nigeria and therefore urged the youths to shun drug abuse and other social vices.
After appreciating the Anglican Bishops for assessing his administration, Governor Sanwo-Olu reiterated his government’s commitment to curb the menace of drug abuse which is rampant among youths in the State.
He said his government is building a massive rehabilitation Hospital in Ketu-Ejirin to tackle drug abuse, adding that his administration would ensure strategic partnership with the Church to ensure people live a better life.
