Ahead of the 2023 general elections, Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has urged religious leaders to shun evil predictions.
According to Channels, Sanwo-Olu, stated this on Sunday at the 23rd Annual Thanksgiving Service tagged “Praising The Name of God,” organised by the First Family of Lagos State in conjunction with the Ministry of Home Affairs at the Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos.
“This year’s Thanksgiving is significant because this is a general election year for Nigeria. Part of our supplications to God today is for us to witness another smooth and peaceful transition of government; a transition that will defy the evil predictions of anarchy and violence peddled every election season by false prophets and enemies of our dear land.
“Even as we seek the face of the Lord regarding this transition season, I am certain that the good people of Lagos State will once again choose the team that has been able to fulfill the mandate entrusted to it,” he said.
Governor Sanwo-Olu also complimented his predecessors, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Babatunde Fashola, and Akinwunmi Ambode, for their contributions to Lagos State’s growth and development over the last 23 years.
