Sanwo-Olu: We Exaggerate Negative Things About Our Country and Constantly Criticize
NewsReport gathered that Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Governor of Lagos State, has asked Nigerians to quit criticizing the country and instead contribute their fair share to its development.
Sanwo-Olu made the remarks at the Community Central Mosque in Ikeja during the special Jumat Service for the 2022 Armed Forces Remembrance Day Celebration.
The Governor, who was represented by his Deputy, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat, stated that Nigerians had developed a habit of criticizing the country and even the Armed Forces, but that they had also contributed to wrongdoings.
“We only criticize.” We even criticize the Nigerian Army for not fighting well. “We usually exaggerate the negative aspects of our country,” he remarked.
According to him, other countries have their challenges, but never portray such to the world.
Sanwo-Olu said that God had given everyone his uniqueness, hence, such uniqueness should be used to build the country.
”How do we justify the death of those people that fought for this country to remain? In memory of the people that have even died, let us even be nice to our country.
”Whether we like it or not, if we do not build it, all of us will suffer. It is as simple as that.
”We should do everything to prevent war. Some people have voluntarily said they will protect all of us with the help of Allah to defend this country. Therefore, we must appreciate them.
”We pray that Almighty Allah will be with the souls of those that have departed. For those that are living, it is our responsibility to do everything that we should to appreciate their efforts,” he said.
In his goodwill message, the Head of Service, Mr Hakeem Muri-Okunola, advised Nigerians to go beyond praying for the Armed Forces but do what was necessary by supporting the families of the fallen heroes.
Muri-Okunola commended the Nigeria Armed Forces for the efforts put in place to protect the people and the nation’s integrity.
He prayed Almighty Allah to continue to fortify and strengthen them and their families.
Speaking on behalf of the Armed Forces, Maj. Ibrahim Harrison, prayed to God to protect and grant peace to the country.
