Ramadan: Pray for Nigerian leaders — Lagos Deputy Governor, Hamzat urges clerics

Share This

Dr. Obafemi Hamzat, the Deputy Governor of Lagos State, has called for continuous prayers for those in positions of authority in the country to enable them to succeed.

Hamzat made the appeal at the Annual Public Ramadan Lecture of the Ansar-Ud-Deen Society of Nigeria, Lagos State Council, held at the Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos.

According to him, with prayers the leaders would be able to introduce policies that would impart positively on the citizens.

He noted that nobody would aspire for position of authority with the intention to fail and hence the need for prayers to prevent them from derailing.

Hamzat noted that the Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s administration would fulfill all the election promises it made to the citizens of the state by working harder.

“We will ensure that the citizenry get the dividends of democracy as the administration intends to focus more on education, infrastructure development, economy, among other issues.

“We will make sure that everybody gets dividends of democracy which include peace because without peace we cannot do anything,” he said.

Commenting on the level of moral decadence in the country, Hamzat tasked parents to take interest in the proper upbringing of their children and family units.

He said parents should be blamed for the increased level of vices witnessed in the nation, stressing that the family unit was the foundation of any society.
