Governor Akinwunmi Ambode

Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has said he’s ready to run in the All Progressive Congress (APC) Lagos State gubernatorial primaries for a chance to represent the party.

Premium Times reports that he said this through a statement released by the state’s Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Kehinde Bamigbetan.

The primaries, slated for Saturday, September 29, will see Ambode run against Jide Sanwo-Olu, who has been approved by all the Local Government chairmen in Lagos.

Ambode said:

As our great party approaches Saturday, September 29, 2018, earmarked for the direct primary election to choose the candidate to fly our party’s gubernatorial flag at the next general election, I am happy to restate my commitment to participate in that process, having procured and submitted my nomination form and having formally declared my intention to seek a second term to continue on the path of unprecedented growth and development that our State has witnessed since 2015.

    Weldone. You are a Governor of the people. You empathized with the masses and we appreciate you for it. It is my sincere prayer that God will grace you unending peace and prosperity in all your future endeavor and your generation will be blessed for what you have done for Lagosian.

    We know we might not have the might to put you on the race for the second term because we know the dynamics of party politics but we know that the works you have done in Lagos state will speak forever.

    Long live our Governor. Long Life Ambode
