Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos state has thanked Muslims in the state for supporting his administration.

The Governor said this while observing Iftar (breaking of fast) with Islamic scholars at the Lagos House, Ikeja, on Monday, May 29, 2017.

Ambode also asked Muslims to use the fasting period to pray for the progress of Lagos state.

According to Punch, he said “Today is a very historic day for us because just two days ago, we celebrated 50th anniversary of Lagos State; yesterday, we gave thanksgiving in the church and today is the third day of Ramadan and we are doing the Iftar here. Today is also the second anniversary of our administration.

“This is my only official function today. I deliberately did not do any other thing to mark the second anniversary than to join my Muslim brothers and sisters.
