Easter: Sanwo-Olu Wants Naira Gains Reflected In Sales

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has called on residents to be Christlike by reducing the cost of commodities as the Naira appreciates against the dollar.

He said it was important to reflect this as Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Sanwo-Olu spoke at the Combined Special Prayer for Nigeria and President Bola Tinubu in commemoration of Easter and Ramadan celebrations, on Friday.

The prayer, held at the State House Mosque Complex, Alausa, Ikeja, attracted leaders of both the Muslim and Christian community.

“It’s beginning to turn around, that’s what we said a couple of weeks ago that there’s nothing that is difficult that will last forever.

“Even at the national level, a naira that we all thought that would never rebound is becoming stronger.

“it’s gaining weight and becoming a lot more of the currency that we all appreciate.

” You can even see from the policies that the Federal Government is bringing out, Naira savings is now the order of the day.

“You should be happy as Nigerians that we are holding on to our currency and which will improve our exchange of value,” Sanwo-Olu said.

He said this needed to reflect in the markets, as the currency was getting stronger and better.

“There’s need to see the reflection in the cost of goods and services; people can not continue to give reasons while it went up, and now that it’s coming down, it also needs to reflect in the cost of rice, beans, tomatoes and that is the message for all of us, because we want to be our brother’s keepers.

“We want to ensure that the suffering of the people is brought to an end.

“I want to thank the president for taking the leadership and working with all the sub nationals, we are beginning to see the benefits of it.

“My wish is for all of us to enjoy the season, to be as peaceful as always and to do things in moderation and ensure that we maintain the sanctity, peace and tranquility that Lagos is known for,” he said.

Sanwo-Olu also commended residents of Lagos State for keeping faith with his administration.

He enjoined residents of the state to be grateful and thankful for the gift of life.

The governor described 2024 Good Friday Easter celebration as triple dose of celebration, which coincides with the 72nd birthday celebration of Tinubu.

“We just finished our Easter prayers which coincides with the birthday of the president, who we have offered prayers for, and we wished him all the very best. and we also prayed for the season.
