we will appreciate if you have something more positive to share or bring the public attention in terms of what your forefathers have contributed to the development of lagos or to the nigerian society at large.The shitta-bey mosque remains of one the nine monuments in lagos! you projenitors couldn't have beaten that.Designed by a renowned architect and built with the staggering amount of 5,000 pounds!!!.in the late 18's amounts to millions of dollars of today's value. opening ceremony witnessed by Oba oyekan the
first Oba of lagos.Edward wilmot blyden(pan africanist)and a christian. Beale Blaizer(Businessman &philanthropist,Newspaper proprietor) also a christian. J.p.l Davies (a captain ,a successful businessman and the first man to grow cocoa in the entire west africa)also christian and the financier of the renowned c.s.m grammar school. That reflects the pedigree of the wealthy individuals from different religious backgrounds but lived together and in love and respected one another in great esteem. you need to read to educate yourself and broaden your view.most importantly you need to start thinking out of the box.Do not spread messages of hate and hanger.we all serve one God.Google the names you find is message to learn more about the individuals and their goals.
