Lagos 2023: Sanwo-Olu Gets Methodist Bishops’ Nod For A Second Term

Bishops of the Methodist Church Nigeria on Tuesday endorsed Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu for a second term in office due to his good governance and service to humanity.

The bishops, who urged Lagosians to grant Governor Sanwo-Olu the second term to complete the enviable projects he has started and others in the pipeline, made their stand known during the Opening Session of the 39th Bishops’ Council of Methodist Church Nigeria held at the Methodist Church of the Trinity, Tinubu in Lagos.

Speaking at the occasion on behalf of the bishops, the Prelate of the Methodist Church Nigeria, His Eminence Dr. Samuel Uche, said Governor Sanwo-Olu deserved a second term having distinguished himself amongst his peers as one of the best in terms of governance.

In His Eminence Dr. Uche’s words:

“You  Governor Sanwo-Olu are among the best in governance we currently have in Nigeria. For this reason, I urge that you be allowed to go for a second term in office so as to complete the enviable projects that you started and others that are in the pipeline. All the bishops in Lagos will mobilise our members, our votes must go to Sanwo-Olu.

“Though, I am not a card-carrying member of any political party neither am I partisan, yet I value people for who they are and not their political affiliation. I believe people like you are the one we should replicate all over the world. The Bishops’ Council will pray for you and other government functionaries so that we continue to have a very progressive and development-oriented Lagos State.”

In his address, Governor Sanwo-Olu responded to the endorsement thus:

“I humbly acknowledge and thank you for your quiet endorsement of my second term. We cannot afford to fail. We cannot afford to give excuses. We cannot afford to give reasons, untenable reasons why we cannot take our country forward. 

“I stand before you and I have said this over and over, with every fabric in my body, I will continue to serve the people of Lagos. We will serve them without fear or favour, ensuring that the greatest good is for the greatest number.

“Our individual and collective challenges are by no means beyond us. Our faith in the Almighty God is able to move mountains. That unshakable faith must be extended into our daily lives.  

“We must maintain faith that our country can and will triumph over all its challenges and cement itself onto the path of everlasting progress. For with God, nothing shall be impossible.”
