Governor Ambode of Lagos State, today marked the third anniversary of his administration with a thanksgiving service held at the Lagos State House, Alausa, on Sunday.
Lagos State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode at the thanksgiving service, attributed the remarkable achievements recorded by his administration in the last three years in all sectors and sections to the hand of God, saying the feats attained across the length and breadth of the State were divinely inspired.
According to him, it was obvious from the upward trajectory of the State that God was involved in the process of thinking, planning and executing policies and programmes for the people, which according to him, had resulted in wonderful accomplishments for the State.
“In two days time, we will be three years in the saddle of this major task. There is no other way to celebrate and that is why we are doing this service because we believe strongly that there is no way we would have made the level of progress so far made without some supernatural hands and we want to give God all the thanks.
“No matter how much strategy that you have read in school or how much work you have done in the public service, it is not possible for you to put a plan up, strategize and try to implement and it works. If it is working back to back and consistently, there has to be some other source that is making it work because you are just one out of several others and why it works for Lagos is the more reason why one has to be very sober and humble to actually know that there is something that is making that to happen and that has to be God,” the Governor said.
Justifying the need for the service, the Governor said it was important to appreciate the almighty God and indeed the people of the State for their support which facilitated the achievements, assuring that more infrastructural projects would be implemented in the next one year.
