Lagos State Governor Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode has appealed to Lagos residents to ensure that they register and collect their Permanent Voters Card (PVC) to be able to exercise their civic responsibilities in the forthcoming 2019 general elections.

The governor spoke at the second edition of Lagos Marathon Praise, a 12-hour song ministration programme, dedicated to thanking God for His mercies on the State and residents organized by Jubilee Concert International at the weekend in Agidingbi, Ikeja area of the state.

He said, “As we raise our voices in His praise, let us get registered and receive our Permanent Voters Card.”

Ambode who was represented by his Special Adviser on Education matters Mr.  Obafela Bank-Olemoh said, “each time I reflect on the level of development our state has experienced within this period, I come to the conclusion that this could not have been possible without God.

“I believe this gathering is divinely ordained and timely considering we are approaching the general elections in 2019 and the measure of help that we have received from God as a people and State. I also believe very strongly that as we engage in this marathon praise, we shall receive more grace and blessings from God.”

Earlier, the wife of Lagos State Governor, Mrs. Bolanle Ambode urged Lagosians to keep faith with the present administration and remain supportive of its policies and programmes, expressing optimism that the future will be greater than the past.

Mrs. Ambode said that the praise programme was necessitated by the need to show gratitude to God, for faithfully directing the government and protecting the residents, adding that the future of Lagos holds greater prosperity for all and sundry.

She said it was the duty of a grateful servant to thank God for numerous acts of kindness, adding that when this is done, the State and its people would continue to prosper.
