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.”
