Invited clerics from across various Arewa community residents in the State, carried out a dedicated session of Quranic recitation, which culminated into a fervent prayer for the success of the Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu led Federal Government, Lagos State and the nation at large.

Responding to questions on the motive behind the prayer exercise, Honorable Kabiru, who is the immediate past Commissioner of Waterfront Infrastructure Development in Lagos State, said it was a continuation of LASACOM’s long term tradition; he added that, it was also a way to lend their spiritual support to the current government in its drive to engender shared prosperity on a greater scale for the Nigerian citizenry. #KabiruAgegeTinubu.

He had, while, speaking to media men during the empowerment exercise last week, noted that it was directed at refuelling petty traders stock in the face of current economic hardship battling Nigerians due to the audacious economic reforms being activated by the Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu led government; he seized the opportunity to call on political office holders across the three tiers of government to demonstrate emphaty for their constituents through similar schemes adopted by LASACOM to alleviate the current temporary inconveniences being faced by the masses. #KabiruAgegeTinubu
