Lagos remains prosperity gateway for Nigerians – Ambode

The Lagos State governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode has said the state has over the years emerged as a viable gateway for honest and genuine business men and women to invest and make good returns on their investments.
Gov Ambode, who spoke on Saturday at the closing session of the 2018 National Convention of the Full Gospel Business Men Fellowship (FGBMF), Nigeria, held at the Police College, Ikeja said the State has many opportunities and an enabling environment for visitors to tap from.
“Our State has been a gateway to prosperity for many and many more still come here in pursuit of their dreams.
“We continue to pray that as more people come to our State in search of genuine, honest business, our God will crown their efforts with success and they will reap bountiful harvests from their labour,” he said.
The Governor said he was particularly thrilled by the theme of the convention; “An Open Door”, saying that it totally conforms with the mantra that Lagos is open for greater business for good, responsible and ethical, honest and genuine business people.
“The theme of this convention further strengthens this thinking. It seems to me that we have been building a Lagos which will be an Open Door to success, An Open Door to prosperity and An Open Door for all who believe and fear God to experience His Love, Mercy and Favour.
“Before a door can open, proper foundation must have been laid. Our State remains a good example of where doors can open for members of this great fellowship,” Governor Ambode said.
He attributed the successes the State has recorded over the years to the fact that the Government recognizes the role of God in its progress and growth.
He said the State has grown in leaps and bounds, just as he expressed confidence that the fortunes of the State would continue to soar with the grace of God.
Earlier in his welcome address, National President of the Fellowship, Mr. Ifeanyi Odedo said posterity would forever be kind to Governor Ambode for putting in place numerous projects to empower the people, especially to tackle poverty.
“The policy thrust of the State Government might not be seen physically, especially the one that has to do with poverty alleviation, such that we have to do with economic growth that has been sustainable through this massive infrastructural development and renewal that is the thrust of Lagos State under this administration.
“Our Governor (Ambode) has left a legacy on the sands of history. As far as this State is concerned, he has lifted the bar of governance. His achievements have brought a lot of excitement in some quarters and provocation in other quarters. I want to believe that posterity will not forget in a hurry the good jobs that our Governor has done,” he said.
