Sanwo-Olu said,

This is the first time this event is holding outside the Government House. We decided to hold this year’s thanksgiving at this venue to allow a greater number of people to participate, in line with our administration’s policy of inclusion.

Secondly, this year’s thanksgiving is also significant because this is a general election year for Nigeria. Part of our supplications to God today is for us to witness another smooth and peaceful transition of government; a transition that will defy the evil predictions of anarchy and violence peddled every election season by false prophets and enemies of our dear land.
