Why I Will Work For Sanwo-Olu In 2019 Election-Ambode

The Lagos state Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, has revealed he will work for  Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), in the 2019 election.

Ambode, made this commitment on Tuesday, October 23rd, while speaking to journalists at the Presidential Wing of the Muritala Mohammed International Airport shortly after he accompanied President Buhari to perform the official commissioning of the new Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Border Posts at Seme-Krake joint border post in Badagry.

According to him, it is important for the APC to retain its leadership positions both in the federal and the State level.

“I have just accompanied Mr. President to the Nigerian-Benin Border Post. So what we have commissioned today is a joint Border Patrol post between Nigeria and the Republic of Benin and it is called Semo-Krake Border Post.

“But again, just to also use this opportunity to let Lagosians know that we are heavily committed to the re-election of Mr. President and you can see that his continuous visit to Lagos reiterates the fact that he is actually a lover of Lagos State and I am committed to ensuring his re-election.

“We are going to campaign heavily for him. I am also committed to ensuring that the APC wins the governorship election come 2019.  We support the candidacy of Babajide Sanwo-Olu and we would make sure that APC retains Lagos State and the centre,” Governor Ambode said.

Many have however viewed the recent support of Sanwo-Olu who defeated Ambode during the recently held party  primaries as the efforts of a drown man trying to retrace his misplaced steps in his party.
