Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode and his wife, Bolanle, organized over 2000 children drawn from the five divisions of Lagos state, at the Lagos House Ikeja, to end the year with a fabulous Christmas party.
Addressing the children, the governor said that his administration was devoted to the continuous improvement of children’s welfare in Lagos state, stressing that he would do anything to keep hope alive for them.
According to him, “Our work never stops, our workforce is committed and every time we reach a destination, we set a new destination for ourselves because, in service delivery and the quest to be the best that we can be, there will be no finish line on the job”, he said.
He wished the children a Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year, praying that they will outshine their parents.
In her own remarks, the visibly elated wife of the governor, Bolanle, reminded the children that Christmas was the season of love, a time for sharing and making merry.
She urged them to be good children, obedient to their teachers, parents and respectful to elders, adding that humility was one of the greatest qualities of Jesus Christ.
All the children went home with handsome gifts and mouth-watering prizes for children who took part in various educational games.
Present were some members of the state executive, as well as members of the Committee of Wives of Lagos State Officials.
