Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode awarded the “Best Performing Governor on Christian Pilgrimage”
Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode on Friday received an award from the Christian Conscience Group as the Best Performing Governor on Christian Pilgrimage. Representing him at the occasion was the state’s Commissioner for Home Affairs, Dr AbdulLateef Abdulhakeem.
The commissioner commended the group for the award saying that it was evidence that the religious sector was dear to the governor and that the government would continue to partner religious and faith-based organizations.
While speaking, the commissioner also revealed that the Lagos state government would ensure that the grassroots were involved in this year’s yuletide celebration as Christmas celebration would be decentralized and held in all the local government councils.
According to him “The governor has decided to ensure that the Christmas celebration is fully decentralized to the grassroots. This year, we are going to have the celebration in all the local government councils to ensure that all residents, churches come out to celebrate.”
Abdulhakeem, however, urged residents to troop out en-masse for the celebration saying it is a moment for all to give glory to God.
