ENUGU, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State has urged Nigerians to put the partisan politics of 2023 behind them and unite to make the country a better place in 2024.
The Lagos State APC chairman, Cornelius Ojelabi, made this remark in his New Year Message on Sunday in Lagos.
“My dear Lagosians, let’s agree to make this year a better one than 2023. Let’s put the partisan politics that dotted 2023 behind us and forge ahead to continue to make our state the Centre of Excellence and, by extension, make Nigeria an excellent nation.
“We must be seen to be engaging in productive activities and actions that will reflect the phrase above,” he said.
Thanking God for the peaceful conduct of the general elections, the chairman commended Nigerians for supporting and electing President Bola Tinubu.
He said, “Indeed, it is a great joy for me to be the chairman that produced the first truly progressive president for the country.”
“You gave our party the nod to spread the magic with which we have made Lagos State a true centre of excellence for the entire nation,” he added.
The chairman assured residents that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his team were ready to make the new year “glorious for us through superlative performance.”
“It is only left for you and me to do everything to cooperate with them in making life better for us,” Ojelabi said.
Mr Ojelabi assured that the government would continue serving the residents better in 2024 and beyond.
“Our party will not disappoint you but will improve on its performance index by providing more dividends of democracy in all sectors of the economy.
“I implore you to continue to be law-abiding citizens and embrace peaceful coexistence. It is in an atmosphere of peace that love, justice and development can be achieved,” the chairman said.
He prayed that 2024 would usher in the abundant blessings of God, better economic realities, and other good things in life for residents.
