“We appreciate Mr. President for his support to our State in the last three and half years. The achievements that we have recorded in Lagos were possible because of his support. This election is not about tribe or religion, it’s about infrastructure, jobs and the economy and the right path to go is to go to the APC.
“If you see what we are going in Lagos already, you will see that the Airport road is not for the Yorubas or the Igbos or the Hausas, its about making life comfortable for Nigerians and that is why Mr. President has continually supported all our projects by even refunding some of the funds we used for capital projects so that we can complete more projects,” Governor Ambode said.
Ambode appealed that the 2019 election dated for February 16 should not be based on blood-shed, tribalism or nepotism. He urged electorates to vote for the purpose of a better Nigeria. He furthered assured that the state will also deliver the votes of residents to other National Assembly candidates of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
