A political group operating under the aegis of Hon. Yepe Support Group for Ambode on Sunday said it is making frantic efforts to ensure the return of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode unopposed in the forthcoming 2019 general election.
The group which is the independent campaign arm of Itesiwaju Ipinle Eko Foundation harped on the need for the governor to be returned unopposed at a rally tagged ‘Mother of all Rally mobilized a massive congregation of holders of the Permanent Voters’ Card (PVC) to show its commitment to achieve the aim.
According to the convener and founder of the group, Dr. Abdulhakeem Abdullateef who also doubles as the state’s Commissioner for Home Affairs Lagos State, “Lagosians must prove to all Nigerians that we are ready to develop a common attitude toward the forthcoming gubernatorial election in 2019.
“We have experienced a governor who has integrated execution into strategy by doing more than what people expected. A governor who follows the tenets of good governance, rule of law, constitutional democracy, and all inclusive governance.
“We are not ready to change a winning team. We must be united regardless of our political parties and ideological differences in coming together to allow Akinwunmi Ambode complete the massive infrastructural renewal which are visible in all sectors throughout the five divisions of Lagos State.
“Let no political party contest gubernatorial election in Lagos State. This will encourage future governors to do well knowing fully well that Lagosians are reasonable people who will always put their political differences aside as a mark of respect for a selfless and hardworking governor like Akinwunmi Ambode. “
Abdulateef further argued that,” if you look at the budget of INEC for the election, one way Lagosians can assist in reducing the huge amount to be spent on the forthcoming election is by not contesting against Governor Akinwunmi Ambode in the election.
” It will also remove the distractions associated with campaigns as the governor will be able to concentrate in ensuring timely completion of all ongoing projects.”
The commissioner said Lagosians are unanimous that Mr Akinwunmi Ambode has performed excellently in so many areas including restructuring of civil service thereby saving the state billions of naira.
