Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has ruled out congratulatory messages from friends and we’ll wishers as he turns 55 years.
In a press statement signed by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Gbenga Akosile, the governor advised those who harbour the intention of sending him birthday messages via the pages of newspapers to channel the resources to attending to the less privileged in the society. He added that by so doing, “you would have lifted my heart too”.
