Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has urged Nigerians, particularly religious leaders, to collaborate in tackling the country’s numerous challenges.

Sanwo-Olu made the call during the opening ceremony of the 41st Bishops’ Council of the Methodist Church Nigeria, held in Lagos. The event’s theme, “Arise & Build,” resonated deeply with the governor.

Represented by his Chief of Staff, Tayo Ayinde, Sanwo-Olu acknowledged the limitations of government efforts without divine guidance and public support. He emphasized that peaceful coexistence is crucial for economic growth and national prosperity.

“The theme for this council, ‘Arise and Build,’ couldn’t be more fitting,” Ayinde said on behalf of the governor. “This theme, inspired by Nehemiah’s story, reminds us of the need to rebuild. Just as Nehemiah rallied his people to reconstruct Jerusalem’s walls, we need visionary leaders to restore our nation’s heritage, history, and shared values.”

Sanwo-Olu stressed the importance of both leadership and public participation. “Alongside visionary leaders,” Ayinde continued, “we need men and women who believe in the vision and support those chosen to guide us forward. The sacrifices of our past heroes must not be forgotten.”

The governor’s message underscores the need for a unified national effort, with religious leaders playing a vital role in fostering peace and cooperation. By working together, Nigerians can overcome their current difficulties and build a brighter future.
