Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State has called on Nigerians to sacrifice for another as shown by Jesus Christ while he was on earth.
He urged Nigerians to “see this period as a time that presents us the viable opportunity to think about how we can help to steer our nation back on the road to peace, stability and prosperity, by working in the spirit of togetherness because no nation can make any meaningful progress in an atmosphere riddled with pockets of violence and killings.”
This is as he noted that “The elections have come and gone, we must not allow our political leanings determine our actions.
“The Nigeria we desire will only be a reality if all hands are on deck towards achieving a peaceful, united, strong, progressive and prosperous country.
“This is the time for us to avoid all divisive, parochial, ethnic and religious sentiments and rivalries, and begin to live more harmoniously with one another, as Jesus Christ enjoined us to.”
