Lagos State Deputy Governor, Dr. Kadri Obafemi Hamzat has charged religious bodies, social and other non-governmental organizations to collaborate with the government in its quest in ameliorating the plights of citizens and bringing services closer to them.

The Deputy Governor made this call today at the Official Commissioning of Ultra-Modern Hospital built by the Akoka Branch of the Ansar-ud-Deen Society of Nigeria.

Dr. Hamzat noted that no nation develops just by the activities of government alone, though such activities are very essential but citizens, religious bodies, charity organizations and non-state institutions also have roles to play in ameliorating the pains of people and in bringing services closer to the people.

He said, “No nation develops just by the activities of the government alone, Though the activities of the government are very essential but I am saying that citizens, religious bodies, charity organizations must have roles to play in ameliorating the pains and sufferings of people or even bringing services to the people”.

Speaking further, the Deputy Governor emphasized that everyone and organizations must play their roles for the growth of the nation and urged other religious bodies and organizations to emulate the Ansar-ud-Deen society in building infrastructures that will help to develop the country, as the government will continue to do its own part and a lot of the people will be lifted which is the only way we can build a suitable nation”.
