The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State have expressed their joy over the recent discovery of oil in Badagry. In a statement released by its Publicity Secretary, Joe Igbokwe, yesterday May 17th, the party said the recent discovery shows that â€œGod has not finished with Nigeriaâ€.
The statement in part reads
Â â€œIt is good news to have Lagos, the land of civilisation, join the club of oil producing states. Lagos economy has been on the rise since 1999, competing effectively with many countries in Africa, and with the advent of oil fields in Lagos, we have no doubt that it will grow far bigger than these countries in few years to come. This monumental achievement in Lagos has left a huge lesson that God has not finished with Nigeria.â€
