Former Ogun State Governor and Senator representing Ogun East, Gbenga Daniel, on Sunday, appealed to Nigerians to continue to support President Bola Tinubu’s government, assuring that his administration will turn the country around for good.
Daniel said President Tinubu has the ability and capacity to entrench good governance in Nigeria.
He, however, warned that Tinubu must not be taken for granted.
The former governor said this during the 19th annual thanksgiving service held at Baptist International Worship Center, aka Abraham’s Tabernacle, in Sagamu, Ogun State.
It had the theme: “Thanking God for total victory, recovery and restoration.”
Daniel in his remarks admitted that there are hardships in the land due to some of the policies introduced by Tinubu-led government.
But he assured that the country would be better for it soon.
He said, “I have known Asiwaju (Tinubu) now for probably over 20 years and I know that he is capable, he is able. And I know that one thing you must not do is to take him for granted.
“I know that Asiwaju will turn around the fortune of this country and I am sure it will happen before long. If there are little little challenges, let’s just accept it that this is normally how things like this go. I urge you to continue to support him and his administration.”
He also urged stakeholders and residents to continue to support the state government, saying “Ogun will continue to be great.”
Delivering his sermon, the Bishop of Lagos North Diocese of the Methodist Church of Nigeria, Rt Reverend Gboyega Ohu, harped on thanksgiving and love for one another in the society.
The clergyman noted Daniel had bounced back politically after being “caged for 8 years,” and “there is nothing but to thank God for his life.”
The service attracted the People’s Democratic Party governorship candidate in Ogun State, Ladi Adebutu, his father and Business mogul, Sir Kessington Adebutu; the immediate past High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Sarafa Tunji Ishola; daughter of the late sage, Dr Tokunbo Awolowo-Dosunmu; the Akarigbo and Paramount ruler of Remoland, Oba Babatunde Ajayi; the Olu of Ilaro and Paramount ruler of Yewaland, Oba Kehinde Olugbenle, among others.
