While thanking Nigerians for voting out the PDP government in the recently concluded presidential election and commending them for embracing change, Akinwunmi Ambode, the governorship candidate for the APC in Lagos also asked them to embrace continuity in Lagos.
“This has been made possible by the resilience of the people. I urge Lagosians not to relent but to vote for APC in Lagos to complete the cycle of excellence.
“Lagos must be the first partaker of the massive support of the APC Federal Government that she has been denied by the PDP. The people of Lagos would recall the way the PDP federal government “punished” Lagos for creating the 37 Local Council Development Areas by withholding the allocation due to the state.
“It was the ingenuity of the crack team of experts, of which I was a member, that led to development of the template on which Lagos not only survived but expanded its Internally Generated Revenue (IGR).
“The task of governance is not for wishful thinkers and verbose speakers but for thinkers, strategists and tacticians.
“I want to plead with the people not gamble with our future. This is not the time for trial and error. The people of Lagos must continue on the path of excellence which the APC represents. Lagosians must vote for continuity on April 11.
“By the grace of God, I believe that if the people of Lagos give me this opportunity I shall serve with sincerity, integrity and with all the talents the Almighty has endowed me with.”
