In a bid to bolster support for the governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress(APC) in Lagos State, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, a chieftain of the party, Senator Ganiyu Solomon has called on Lagos residents to vote en masse for Mr. Ambode come April 11, 2015.
Sen. Solomon who represents Lagos West Senatorial District in the senate made this call in a statement issued on Tuesday.
Titled: Lagos, Let’s Do It Again! Sen. Solomon congratulated all the party faithful on the victory of its presidential candidate, Major-General Muhammadu Buhari(retd.), urging them to vote massively for Mr. Ambode so as to repeat the performance.
The statement reads, “On Saturday, March 28, our great party, the APC made history at the presidential poll with General Muhammadu Buhari emerging the next president of the country.
“The victory was well deserved after a long haul of political warfare. But the battle is not over yet.
“This Saturday, April 11 has been slated for the governorship election and Lagos cannot afford to play the opposition at a period the APC is the government at the centre.
“This time in Lagos, continuity is both constructive and imperative and in fact, sacrosanct because it can only be sustained by the APC – tested and trusted.
“Let’s Vote Akinwunmi Ambode for governor and all the APC candidates for the state assembly. A consolidation of the gains so far is not negotiable and the future cannot be put away inexplicably. Let’s do it again, Lagos.”
