Lagos will not discriminate against tribe or creed —Ambode

Lagos State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode, on Thursday hosted the executive members of the Federation of Muslim Women Association of Nigeria (FOMWAN), at the Lagos House, saying that his administration would not subscribe to any form of discrimination based on tribe or religious affiliation.

The Governor, who hosted the group at the Lagos House, Ikeja, said, “In Lagos, it is very clear that there is a heavy presence of religious organisations. Lagos is a cosmopolitan state; we do not discriminate and we are set out to obey the constitution of this country. And in doing so, free citizens of Lagos State should be given the chance to excel to where God has planned for them to be.

The Governor, who said Lagos was honoured to be chosen as the host for the 31st edition of the FOMWAN Conference, also commended the group for embarking on laudable projects just as he assured them of the readiness of his government to partner with them in executing the projects earmarked to be done in the state.

Earlier, Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Dr. (Mrs) Idiat Oluranti Adebule, who is also a member of the group, expressed appreciation, especially for the support the group and the entire Muslim family has been receiving from the Governor.

Also speaking, President of the group, Hajia Aminat Omuti, commended him for the giant strides he has done in the state in the 16 months of his administration.
