The Governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Sanwo – Olu, on Wednesday, asked friends, families, professional colleagues and political associates, that there should be no congratulatory advertisements placed in newspapers to celebrate his birthday.
Sanwo – Olu will be 55 years old on Thursday, June 25, 2020.
The Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr Gboyega Akoile revealed in a release, adding that Governor Sanwo – Olu, wishes to continue his tradition of reaching out and sharing love with the needy in the society.
“Mr. Governor believes that an occasion of one’s birthday, especially a milestone such as the age of 55, should be a day to reflect on one’s purpose of existence in life and, this according to him, is “to serve the humanity”” the statement said.
“Apart from the outreach, Mr. Governor is scheduled to spend the better part of the day to attend to many important State matters.
“The Governor thanks his numerous supporters and well – wishers, who may have planned to celebrate with him in one way or another as he turns 55, advising them to use same resources to touch the lives of the most vulnerable people in their spheres of influence.
“The best birthday gift anyone would give me at this period is to identify those at the bottom of the pyramid wherever they reside, lift them up by putting smiles on their faces-that way, you would have lifted my heart too.”
The statement added that, there is no plan for any form of celebration other than what has been stated above.
