“He has replicated the same in healthcare, education, sports and all the other sectors.

“Since the other senatorial zones have endorsed him for second term, we feel, as the largest senatorial zone in the state should not be left out.

“We are proud of the governor and his achievements and that is why party members and those present today have asked the governor to carry on with his development strides,” he said.

The Woman Leader of the party Kemi Nelson described Governor Ambode as an achiever, who is friendly to the female gender.

“Our governor has done a lot for the state and has done particularly well for women.

“Women in the state are satisfied with what he is doing and that is why we are here to ask him to go for another term,” she said.

Speaking in like manner, former deputy governor, Sosan said the performance of Ambode had made him a natural choice for second term.
