I congratulate the good people of Lagos Central Senatorial District, Lagos State and Nigeria as a whole on witnessing the end of the year 2018.
2018 was an eventful year. Fraught with issues ranging from farmer-herdsmen clashes to increment in minimum wage, the year also saw the emergence of candidates aspiring various political offices on the platform of the ninety-one (91) registered political parties.
Regardless of what cards life dealt you, 2018 is over. Thus I welcome you to 2019, full of hopes, dreams and revolutionary ideas. Beyond a change of dates, it is a new opportunity to repurpose yourself, re-channel your energy and pursue your dreams. It is for us all, a new beginning, individually and collectively.
Collectively, we have a chance to decide the leadership of our great Nation, Nigeria for the next four years. In making this decision, we must be mindful of its impact on our future and the future of the unborn generations.
Realising the weight of this responsibility, we must approach the general elections determined to exercise our civic within the ambits of law and devoid of selfish interest and gain. You must embrace peaceful elections, not letting your conscience or votes be bought.
The start of the year determines largely, the rest of it. Thus, we must go into the new year determined to be better and to do better. 2019 should not be the year of unrealised goals and visions. Start well, start early and keep at it.
Once again, I felicitate with you all and wish you a prosperous 2019.
Senator Oluremi Tinubu, OON
I rejoice with the people of Lagos Central Senatorial District, Lagos State and Nigeria for another season of festivities to commemorate the birth of our Lord Jesus and God’s love to mankind.
Christmas is a time of celebration, joy and love. However, it is also a time to reflect on the purpose of the birth of Christ and ensure that our lives model the exemplary sacrifice of God’s love for mankind.
In addition, it is a time to show love and extend helping hands, especially to the less privileged amongst us. It is my hope that we can carry on the culture of giving beyond the festivities and apply these tenets in our everyday lives as Christ enjoins us to.
Regardless of whatever challenges we may have faced this year which is fast coming to an end, I urge you all to remain steadfast and committed to the cause of a better Nigeria which the All Progressives Congress (APC) led administration is working towards.
With the campaigns in full swing and the general elections fast approaching, we are confronted with choices or decisions to be made as individuals and a Nation. I implore you to choose the path of peace for the greater good of our collective future.
Whatever you nurture will yield good results. Let us choose to nurture our heritage, communal history and our beloved Country Nigeria. I am certain that if we persist, it will pay off eventually.
Thus, I felicitate with you once again and wish you all the joy and happiness of Christmas.
Senator Oluremi Tinubu, OON
