The Igbo Vision in the All Progressives Congress, APC, yesterday endorsed Governor Akinwumi Ambode as being capable of ruling Lagos state for another four years.
Speaking at a stakeholders meeting, the Publicity Secretary of APC in Lagos State, Mr. Joe Igbokwe said Igbo people in Lagos had resolved to once again support Governor Ambode to in the 2019 governorship election.
Igbokwe said the Igbo people have seen Ambodes works and the transformation he is giving to Lagos which had silenced opposition “in recognition of his hard work, we are going to come out in millions to support him once again through voting.”
He said: “I know that the Igbo, under the aegis of Igbo Vision, supported Ambode to become governor in the face of victimisation but they have not been recognised for their loyalty. Today, I want to assure you that our Governor did not forget the Igbo, you will be rewarded at appropriate time.”
“Government does not share money; it can only impact the society through its developmental project of which Ambode stands out. We have seen physical developments across Lagos and the ongoing transformation in Ladipo market is one among numerous ongoing projects to make life better for Lagosians. We are pleased with this and we want it to continue.”
In view of this, Vice President, Association of Ndieze Igbo in Diaspora Worldwide, Uche Dimgba said they have started persuading Igbo people to register and get their voters card.
“We also encourage those that have voters card to come out and vote for Ambode in recognition of his selfless service to the development of Lagos State. Lagos State is our home and this is where we have majority of our investment”, Dimgba said.
