Ambode says “Wherever Fashola stops, I am going to continue with it”



Akinwunmi-Ambode-2Akinwunmi Ambode, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, on Tuesday reiterated his commitment to consolidate on the achievements of Governor Babatunde Fashola‘s administration, if elected.

Ambode spoke at a rally organised by APC in Oshodi/Isolo area of the state.

He said that he was ready to improve on projects left unfinished by the present administration.

“Wherever he stops, I am going to continue with it,” he said.

Ambode said that he would integrate tourism, hospitality, entertainment and sports together to create more jobs for the youths.

“Our youths are in dire need of jobs, we will create an employment trust fund that will allow them have access to free capital to start any business of their choice,” Ambode said.

He also said that a small credit guarantee scheme would be created for all small business owners and entrepreneurs.

The governorship candidate said that he would build inner city roads in Oshodi/Isolo and ensure further development of the entire state.

He said that additional buses would provided for all roads.

“The roads that BRT buses do not ply,we will make sure they ply them.

We will do so much about traffic management and there will be easier traffic in all our neighbourhoods,’’ he said, urging the people to give him their votes.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that some members of the PDP defected to the APC at the event.
Saidi Adeyemi, who led the defectors, said that they declared for APC because they wanted be part of the progressives.

Adeyemi, who was an aspirant for the House of Representatives under PDP, said that the group would add to the votes of the APC.

NAN reports that it was carnival-like at the Ejigbo playground, venue of the campaign, as party members and supporters danced to music supplied by two popular Fuji musicians, Wasiu Ayinde and Adewale Ayuba.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

      Lmao,a fi change. You mean the change like sharing Kerosine and handing over Lagos to his godfather the ex prisoner Bode George? Not to forget having nothing to show for his profession? Where is the Jay Kay pharmacy? A road side shop that Jimi has even started denying lol. Stop lying , Ambode never misappropriated funds and my mother worked in Alausa so I can tell you first hand. Fashola would never have been going with him to campaign if that was so. Stop the politics of staring rumors about opponents and tell us what your candidate has to offer, if anything sha . This is pdp’s M.O you lie against Buhari, you lie against Ambode because your candidates have nothing for you to campaign with

      I dunno why this rumour of Ambode being sacked by Fashola has refused to die. Ambode resigned as the accountant general of Lagos so he could prepare for 2015 elections. He was never sacked by Fashola, he resigned. Pls anyone with evidence of Ambode being sacked by Fashola should produce the evidence for all to see else they should stop spreading false information. Ike election agu gom!

      Of please, you mean Jim the liar and his fans who are full of lies. Jimi Agbaje that put on his personal website that he is the MD of Jay Kay Pharmacy, only for the pharmacy to be exposed as owing taxes since 2009. Then Jimi the liar released a statement saying he has not been involved in the running of Jay Kay pharmacy since 2006! Chai Jimi the liar, you mean an MD is not involved in the running of a company! And if he hasn’t been involved with Jay Kay pharmacy since 2006 what has he been doing since them that enables him to keep wearing gold chain. Lol Jimi the liar and his supporters the liars

    Errrrr….the fact that you are from the same party as Fashola does not guarantee that you will continue where he left off Mr. Misappropriation of Funds. Fashola already sacked you which means he didn’t trust you with money. So now we should hand over Lagos State to you so Tinubu can continue his rape of the finances of Lagos? This election period sha…….. #changeindeed.

    PDP liars,the man has posted his letter of commendation from Fashola when he retired, does one write a letter of recommendation to someone he sacked? Plus Fashola himself has denied the rumors numerous times. Fear God and stop telling lies because your Jimi Kerosine has nothing to show for his 57 years except for a road side comer shop that he calls a pharmacy

    No matter how many if you Jimi Stooges come here to tell lies daily, it dosent change the truth. Fashola himself has said that this is man that he knows will do better than even him. Stop telling lies about another candidate just because you have nothing to use to promote the stooge of Bode George Jimi.

    After 4 years of been elected, we will know who and who will deliver. Both are promising heaven on earth as if they will not take after their father’S’. All I know is all will be well by God’s grace.

    I like the man, he comes across as very humble. Plus I have faith in Fashola and the way Fashola talks about this man’s accolades and love for Lagos has convinced me. I’ll vote GEJ for presidency and Ambode for Lagos

    Oh you really cant be that naive….Misappropriation of Funds is a nice way to put it . AMBODE STOLE MONEY FROM THE STATE COFFERS.. we all know the facts…after he stole money, Fashola wanted to fire him but thiefnubu wont let him and told him to let ambode resign because he already had plans to use ambode as his next housboy…of course fashola wrote a letter of commendation when his lord and master has commanded him, how dare he not write it…of course fashola will deny sacking ambode when he wants to be in thiefnubu’s good grace so he can get a position at the Federal level (if they ever manage to get there) why do you think he is talking soo much rubbish all over the place. It must be difficult to be hustling for relevance in a party that doesnt think you are significant. he clearly isnt busy running the state anymore since he has decided to be ambode’s campaign DG. anyways all i know is this is the end of APC in lagos state.

    “If there is one wholesome reason Agbaje should be sitting pretty in Alausa, next May, it is because, he had never been called a thief before…Agbaje stands very clean in public life. Now, Akinwumi stands, called a THIEF.. It would be tough to call Agbaje a thief. He never held any of these juicy offices before..
    Ambode, on the other hand, had been in the civil service for decades. When you have been around for that long, you must be the worst kind of unrepentant felon, to deny your hand was in the public till in Nigeria. We safely pronounce Akinwumi Ambode a Hophni, but we slack, compared to Fashola, who fired him for huge frauds.
    And Fashola did not sack Ambode on the grounds of a governor’s righteousness, because, Fashola himself has trouble keeping his fingers from the public till. Fashola hates Ambode’s guts because the chap is a thief, yes, but more than that, there is this rivalry you find among Tinubu’s trainees, and tools. To be sure, Tinubu himself encourages the rivalry the way a deft-handed puppeteer and mastermind handles his craft.
    Fashola was at loggerheads with Tinubu for a long time over the succession issue. His main slogan was “anybody else but Ambode”. How long Fashola would remain cowed is another topic. He kept rolling out his reel of naivety by hoping he could have a tiny say in who the successor would be. He moved from that failure to the hope for a VP ticket and failed again. We will rip Fashola open one day to see what lies inside this Bourdillon messenger, who wants to challenge his boss with sheer posturing.
    Fashola caught Ambode’s hand in the till and wanted to sack him shamefully. He developed cold feet at the instance of Bourdillon’s protection. “Okay” said Bourdillon, “He truly stole these billions, but we could ill afford to wash APC’s linen in the sun.please, let him resign honorably”. So Ambode, the brilliant bandit escaped, and is now programmed for a greater opportunity to finish the job of finishing Lagos off. There was rivalry, but there was also the kind of theft which stings the nostrils of other thieves. Ambode’s exploits in Alausa stung Fashola’s nostril…
    These newts learn nothing from Tinubu, which is why they develop high blood pressure every time Lagos opens for a governor. They want to worm their way into his heart. Error! The man has no heart, which is why he loots and grabs the way he does with a great deal of success..
    Ambode rounded up accountants and finance workers in Alausa, ostensibly for a refresher course or retreat trip to South-Africa. It was at a time Obasanjo’s hound (efcc) was sniffing Tinubu’s blood. The noose was close. Glasses were clinking in Aso Rock. It was premature celebration. Obasanjo, like the tank, is not such a smart fighter. He underestimated Tinubu. If anything told us that Obasanjo’s military prowess was a tall-tale, it was the white washing Tinubu gave him in Lagos, all those years. Obasanjo did not meet a match in Tinubu (that would be an insult), he met a master.
    How did anyone who read Tinubu right, not think for once that the man bought heavily into the efcc. Of course, he got information before Obasanjo did. He was way ahead of grandstanders. He only indulged in that, a few months after the job was done. He learnt of the onslaught from Ribadu’s main men. The computers were cleaner than whistles by the time efcc came calling. Who did they think they were after? Yahoo boys?
    By the time Ambode returned from SA with the heavily padded accountants, the fog covering the case was heavier than harmattan haze at its December peak. Well, that was when the weather and sanity walked together.
    Ambode scored heavy when he sprang Tinubu (not necessarily from jail), but from a huge shame which could have kept him from open politics the rest of his life. These people do not jail each other for simply stealing public money. You had to have done more than that. A chip off the old block, that was the moment Tinubu found his next governor.”

      I believe you got all this information by being a fly or mosquito in Tinubu’s office or house. Human beings can spread false stories just to make their own candidate look good. If my iinlaw wasn’t working @ Alausa, I may have been tempted to believe you but thank God I know better. #NoToLiars #WeKnowTheTruth
      Ambode for governor of Lagos!!!!!!
