Governor Ambode of Lagos Celebrates 53rd Birthday | Photos

Ambode at 53-11Governor Akinwunmi Ambode on Tuesday turned 53, and he marked his birthday with a special luncheon to raise funds for the provision of three Mobile Cancer Centres across the three Senatorial Districts in the State, with a call on Nigerians to join hands together to wage war against the scourge.

Ambode speaking at the #GivingTuesdayLagos event called on all Nigerians to join hands to fight cancer.

“Lives are lost every day to cancer and this is unacceptable. This is why the Lagos State Government carries out public health programmes focused on cancer.

I believe that the government alone cannot solve every problem; everyone has a role to play. In my one year in office, I have come to realise that even with the best will in the world, Government cannot do everything. The real challenge before me as Governor of Lagos is how I unite public, private and philanthropic sectors in building our state.

I am therefore, glad that through this private sector led initiative I can play a role in helping to advance the BIG WAR Against Cancer for the well-being of not just the good people of Lagos State but Nigerians in general.

We can only achieve this goal with the generous support of all people of goodwill. Without these donations, the goal would not be reached and the opportunity to save lives would be lost.

This is not really a celebration but a call to service. Against all odds; against all the things happening to the economy in the country; against the numbers; against the anxieties and the panic, we are still able to stand up and gather ourselves together and say we want to give back to humanity, that is symbolic and key for me and I think we must commend ourselves that all hope is not lost. There is more value to us and humanity in championing this course,” he said.

The #GivingTuesday event founded by the United Nations, was  put together by the Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy (CECP-Nigeria), and is observed worldwide.

      Just say you want to bring up gist. In any case, Mrs Ambode has made her choice and she and her husband appear to be fine with it. It is a free world after all.
      HBD to Ambode, nice initiatives there. If only more governors had a similar level of concern for their states, Nigeria would have been a better place.

    @fasholaslover you insult people way too much. Even if someone disagrees with you on the most minor of issues, you retort bitterly and with so much venom and insults. Calm down o. Don’t give yourself anxiety or high blood pressure. For someone who said she studied abroad, your manners are very unbecoming. Uncouth, if I’m being honest.

      Well, the key word is “who said”… anyone can say anything. Most of those who have spent even a little while overseas generally show some decorum even when they are blasted (Nahum, Mz SA, the real Dee, etc). FL started off well when she started posting about a year ago but as the saying goes character is a like a smoke that will eventually show. This agbero-ish behavior says otherwise to all supposed claims. Nuff said.

      See monitoring spirit. You even know when she started posting. Ebe like say she don abuse you too. All of you like to call people out but when you are abused you complain.

      Lola, l liked your comment in error. So how do people who live abroad behave. Inferiority complex. Mind your business. So the people who live abroad are better? See mentality?

    Yoruba hypocrites. We can abuse maje. But becos ambode is yoruba we cannot call him out for adultery? Why? For those saying the wife likes it. Keep deceiving yourself. Show me a woman who will be happy if the husbsnd not only commits adultery but bring her a child as evidence.
