Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode has urged Nigerians to remain as one big family, adding that there was more to gain in being together as one nation.

Ambode, at a special thanksgiving service to commemorate Nigeria’s 57th Independence Day anniversary at Lagos House Chapel in Alausa, Ikeja, said the country’s diversity made it a special place.

The governor said, “That we still have a country we can call Nigeria today is a proof of the divine hands of God in our being together as one.

“We have more to gain as one nation than as different independent entities.”

While noting the prosperity and growth that Lagos had witnessed, the governor said he was concerned that most of the states of the federation were struggling to survive.

He said, “We cannot, however, be satisfied in a situation where many other states are struggling to survive. It is in our interest that the wind of prosperity blows across the length and breadth of our nation.”

In his sermon, the pastor in charge of Province 36 of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Tunde Netufo, spoke on the theme, ‘God’s Greatness in Our Land,’ urging Nigerians to “love like never before and eschew bitterness, corruption and every form of evil.”
