On the historic occasion of the Lagos4Lagos (USA) hosting our Lead Visioner, Dr. Abdul-azeez Olajide Adediran today, 9th October, 2021 in Houston, Texas. I, Funke Ijayekunle, the Central Coordinator, Lagos4Lagos movement, on behalf of our members, wish to express my profound gratitude to members of the Diaspora4Jandor for the overwhelming support the movement has received from the Diaspora since it was launched.
In an unprecedented manner, you have all left your comfort zones to unanimously devote time and resources to return our dear state to what our fathers bequeathed to us. Across Europe, Middle East and the Americas, you have all spoken with one voice and have walked your talk in supporting our desire to entrench a Lagos that works for Lagos.
Significantly, members of the Diaspora4Jandor are drawn from different religious, ethnic and political divides. Our dear state, Lagos, cosmopolitan in nature, has always been a melting point that transcends, ethnic, religious and political consideration.
You have demonstrated immense love and interest in the affairs of your fatherland and Lagos, the commercial nerve centre of Nigeria. You have written your name in gold and indeed, history will never forget your contribution in freeing our dear state from the stranglehold of autocracy.
Thank you and God bless you all.
