This year’s Christmas was that of pleasant surprise for some residents of Lagos State who got unexpected gifts from Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Like Santa Claus, Governor Sanwo-Olu gave out gifts to some of the persons who responded to his Instagram post on charity during the festive season.

The governor had asked the public to ensure they check on their neighbours, share with friends and show love at Christmas.

He said, “This season of be your brother’s keeper, check in on your neighbours, lend a helping hand, it’s the season of giving. Therefore, show kindness to one another in gifts and affection. Together, lets take a moment to reflect on what would truly make this a season to remember, if you can dream it, it is possible.”

The Christmas wishes which left as half-hearted comments on Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s social media page inspired a season of giving themed, #BOSChristmas as beneficiaries got the gifts they had requested for delivered at their doorstep.

Reacting to the governor’s post, a resident, who dropped his account number requesting for urgent N10,000 which he said he needed to prepare rice for his family, asked Sanwo-Olu to practise what he preaches.

Oluwagbotemi Moshood, a final-year student who got the laptop he requested for.

“It still feels like a dream.”. Nomzy Kitchen, who got a deep freezer delivered to him as Christmas gift, said.

“Is this real? You have no idea what this means to my business. Thank you Santa Sanwo-Olu,” Precious Onome, a caterer said.

The lucky winners were drawn from different parts of the Island and Mainland in Lagos, including: Surulere, Oshodi, Ejigbo, Ogba, Ikeja, Ikorodu, Abule-Egba, Ajah.

They got gifts such as foodstuff, livestock, home appliances, tuition fees and business equipment.

Other recipients of the largesse include mother of two, Oluwadamilola Adeleke, and Eunice Ifeoluwa, both in the Ijesha area of the state; Toriola Fadekemi, Ademola Adewusi, Precious Onome and Omoleye Falomo.
