The Lagos State Government 2015 Annual Thanksgiving Service held last sunday in Lagos House in Alausa. Prominent amongst the dignitaries at the event were; The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye and his wife Pastor Mrs. Foluke Adeboye, the presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC) Major General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd), the party’s vice presidential candidate, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, the Lagos State governorship candidate, Akinwunmi Ambode , Rivers State governor Mr. Rotimi Amaechi amongst others.
The presidential candidate explained that religion should never be used as an excuse “to divide us, oppress others or gain unfair advantage. All my life I have expressed the belief that all Nigerians must worship God according to their wish.” He said the duty of government “is not religion. Security for all Nigerians regardless of tribe or religion is our commitment on this day of thanksgiving. We shall all seat together like this, rejoice and thank God together for the Almighty God to give us the country of our dream.” Disturbed by the avaluation of evil prophesies, Fashola appealed to the prophets of doom not “to prophesy evil things about Nigeria and our state,” expressing hope that the country would surmount her challenges.
