He said: “We want to assure you that we will not serve only the party, but all the residents of the state.

“We said it at the inauguration, our government will be for all. We will serve and be a blessing to you.”

Sanwo-Olu, who appreciated the people for coming out en masse to rejoice with him and his deputy, urged religious leaders to always pray for them for the success of his administration.

“I implore our clerics to always remember us in prayers as we go on the journey while I restate that our government will be a government of all,” he said.

According to him, religious leaders played a crucial role in information dissemination because of the huge number of followers they have, hence the need for them to assist his administration in using their various platforms to pass information regarding government programmes and policies to the people

“As I said earlier, I would not but seek your support on the propagation of our programmes and policies, especially on traffic and waste management and zero tolerance for improper waste disposal in the state.” he said
