Sanwo-Olu Cautions Religious Leaders Against Incendiary Comments by ogododo: 10:36pm On Feb 20
Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State on Saturday cautioned religious leaders and opinion moulders against reckless utterances that could further aggravate the security crises in the country.

Sanwo-Olu gave the admonition at the 2021 Lagos State Interdenominational Divine Service organised by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) at the Apostolic Church, Ketu.

The governor said the nature of the crises required all religious leaders to refrain from making incendiary comments that could stoke divisions and violence.

According to him, a crisis in Nigeria will be catastrophic for Africa.

He said the nation had faced a difficult period in the past year following economic downturn occasioned by the outbreak of COVID-19 and accentuated by youth restiveness.

Sanwo-Olu, who said Lagos State became the epicentre of the crises, which kept the government on its toes, stressed that religious leaders must use their pulpits to preach peace and discourage war.

The governor said it was time citizens came together and gave Nigeria the new beginning it deserved in surmounting contemporary challenges.

“It is time for sober reflection that must bring a new beginning for our nation. We have all witnessed the challenges of our country, but we need to be careful not to turn the observed crises into ethnic or religious war.

“We need to guard against utterances that may stereotype anyone or tribes. We have a duty to isolate criminals in our communities rather than introducing tribal spin into every crime.

“Nigeria is the largest country in Africa. Where will we go to?

“That’s why I said we need a new beginning and there are no other people that can help us lower the temperature and calm frayed nerves than our religious leaders whose voices are well respected,’’ he said.

The governor added that Nigerians must not add political instability to the many battles the country was fighting.

Sanwo-Olu said that the crises bedevilling the nation required collective action from every segment of the country toward evolving solutions.

He said that in spite the COVID-19 crisis and the destruction that trailed the #EndSARS protest in 2020, Lagos had weathered the storm with strong determination to sustain the progress it recorded.

He commended religious groups for sustaining Lagos State with prayers, and particularly praised CAN for its spiritual support towards his administration.

“As a government, we will continue to play our part and deliver projects that are critical to the socio-economic wellbeing of the people.

“The duty of CAN and our church leaders is to continue to support us with prayers and populate messages that promote unity within our communities and state,’’ Sanwo-Olu said.

The Southwest leader of CAN, Rev. Fr. Raphael Osegboun, decorated Sanwo-Olu as Grand Patron of the Lagos chapter of the association.

Osegboun said that the appointment was based on the Christian body’s resolve to naturally fill the position with any sitting governor of Christian faith.

Also, the lawmaker representing Lagos Central Senatorial District, Sen. Oluremi Tinubu, was named the Matron of the association, while Rev. Mother Esther Ajayi was appointed as Grand Matron.

The theme of this years’ service is: “A New Beginning, A New Dawn and A New Glory,’’ (NAN)

Do you mean religious leaders like Sheikh Gumi ?

Bandits now have a spiritual head..

Added to their Grand Patron.

No wonder, the hands of the old Security Chiefs were tied. People were using security chiefs as scape goats. Not knowing that the Chief Sponsors of Terrorism will soon be revealed.

Yes, one Prophet prophesied that it's in 2021, the sponsors of Terrorism will be revealed, I remember.

When you know where your problem is coming from, your problem is over. Now nah Kidnapping spree as they scramble for ransom, then they get tired and tell themselves the truth or thunder will strike them b4 then.

They are all fear fear leaders. The Islamic Clerics has made so many comments backing the Fulanis, non of you came out to counter such. Sanwo-Olu should shut his trap, and tell this rubbish to the Fulani Islams terrorizing the nation.
Re: Sanwo-Olu Cautions Religious Leaders Against Incendiary Comments by witworth(m): 7:31am On Feb 21
Even if at all any religion or ethic stuff never divided us, how about politics that divides us everyday, when APC will make so many incindiary comments against PDP and PDP too will make the same against APC, why can't they talk about that part. They will only be warning tribal and religious leaders but won't warn the politicians themselves about stoking divisions.
They think everybody else is foolish.
No sir, not like your supporters. Some of us are independent.
All your followers and sympathizers may remain junior slaves to you their senior slave leader, but some of us knows the truth already

it's just out of greed. They don't want the country to break away during their tenure. They want to enjoy what others enjoyed at the detriment of the poor masses. It's just like your friend played bet9ja with #10,000 and won #10,000000. You equally played the same game and won the same amount but on your way to Cash out, you heard some people clamoring to shutdown bet9ja shops when you have not collected your winnings!!! My dear you will relate
