The Chairmen of 20 Local Government Areas and 37 Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs) of Lagos State have unanimously endorsed the state Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode for a second term in office.
The council bosses told journalists that they took the decision to support Governor Ambode for another term to give him opportunity to continue with the massive infrastructural renewal and transformation of all parts of the state.
The Governor had in recent time received series of endorsements for a second term in office from critical stakeholders and sectors in the State.
The Chairmen, who spoke through the Chairman of Conference of LGs and LCDAs in the State, Hon Omolola Essien, after rising from a meeting with the Governor at Lagos House in Alausa, Ikeja said the achievements of the Governor in office so far were visible to all.
Essien, who is also the Chairman of Lagos Mainland Local Government, said the unanimous endorsement of the Governor was the second time the council chiefs would be doing such having earlier endorsed him individually.
“We the Chairmen of the 20 Local Government Areas and 37 Local Council Development Areas (LCDA) of Lagos State are all here to reaffirm our endorsement of our Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode for second term.
“Our decision to support him for another term in office is based on the fact that he has performed extremely well; we can all see that everything that he has done in Lagos State, no other state has been able to do that.
“He has done very well and there is still continuation of a lot of things to be done which the Governor is actively implementing. We are here reaffirming our position because we have already endorsed him before now,” Essien said.
