Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu who turns 55 years on Thursday, June 25, says he does need any felicitation or congratulatory messages to be placed in the media by family members, friends, professional colleagues and political associates to celebrate him.
The governor in a statement issued by his chief press secretary, Gboyega Akosile, said he wishes to continue his tradition of reaching out and sharing love with the needy in the society.
“Mr. Governor believes that an occasion of one’s birthday, especially a milestone such as the age of 55, should be a day to reflect on one’s purpose of existence in life and, this according to him, is “to serve humanity,” the statement read.
Apart from the outreach, the governor is scheduled to spend the better part of the day to attend to many important state matters.
The governor thanked his supporters and well-wishers, who may have planned to celebrate with him in one way or another as he turns 55, advising them to use same resources to touch the lives of the most vulnerable people in their spheres of influence.
“The best birthday gift anyone would give me at this period is to identify those at the bottom of the pyramid wherever they reside, lift them up by putting smiles on their faces-that way, you would have lifted my heart too,” adding that there was no plan for any form of celebration other than what has been stated above.
