Fashola Canvasses Support For Ambode


Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos state has urged lagosians to vote for the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Akinwunmi Ambode, to sustain the programmes of his administration. The Nation reports.


Fashola was speaking at the Lagos Sea Food Festival 2014 at the Bar Beach, Victoria Island. He said voting Ambode and the APC would ensure that the state continued to enjoy good governance and high performance.
Leadership reports that Fashola lauded all the fishermen and women from across the riverine areas of the state: Epe, Badagry, Bariga, Eti-Osa and others, and said what his administration tried to do in instituting the festival was to bring the rural fishermen and women into the city once every year as the build-up to end of year activities begin

He said: “I urge you all to support the new APC governorship candidate; support him, support the party and make sure that the festival continues.
“If you want this to continue, you have a role to play; you have to register and you have to collect your Permanent Voter Cards and then you can use your vote to choose what you want”.

“So, if you want this Sea Food Festival to be here next year, if you want Count Down to be here next year, if you want Beach Soccer to be here next year, the only way you can get them is to vote the government which is providing these activities in Lagos. So, if you want to keep them, you must do your part. Vote APC.

“I hope that you will all do what is necessary to sustain these activities.”
Before the APC primary election, the governor said he would support whoever emerged the candidate.

It will be recalled that the governor was at loggerheads with his predecessor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu over who would emerge as the former’s successor. Governor Fashola was said to have been routing for either his commissioner for works, Mr. Obafemi Hamzat or former Lagos state attorney-general, Mr. Olasupo Shasore.
