Members of a group operating under the aegis of Itesiwaju Ipinle Eko Vanguard has led scores of Muslim pilgrims from Lagos State to hold special prayers for the re-election of Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode at Kaabah in Mecca, Saudi Arabia in the forthcoming 2019 general election.
It was gathered that the prayers led by Sheikh Semiu Olojeola, the President of Immas and Alfas Council of Nigeria, saw pilgrims under the platform of the Itesiwaju Ipinle Eko Vanguard using the opportunity provided by the Lesser Hajj to pray for the continuity in office of Ambode-led administration.
Olojeola said the first term of Ambode was characterised by series of laudable projects including improved road infrastructure, schools’ upgrade, improving the healthcare sector, and massive investment in the security apparatus in the State.
“There is still a lot of work to be done in the State, but Governor Ambode has started on a very sound footing despite the economic challenges in the country.
‘’While many States are finding it hard to cope with the paucity of funds, but thank God for Ambode, Lagos is one of the very few states which has continued to rise despite the economic outlook. This is the First term and we believe by the grace of Almighty Allah, the plans he has for the next second term will come to pass. With Ambode, Itesiwaju Ipinle Eko is assured.’’
The state coordinator of the Itesiwaju Ipinle Eko Vanguard, Seyi Bamigbade who had received various political groups at Mushin the previous week said Lagos will witness more development if Governor Akinwunmi Ambode is re-elected in the 2019 general election.
‘’We are ready to give the Governor the targeted five Million Votes. He said.
Also speaking, the former Lagos State Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Mr Moshood Salvador, said ` I am ready to support the Governor Akinwunmi Ambode second term in office because of the commitment to the smart city development.’’
