We’ve kept faith with our promise to Lagosians – Ambode

…Says Lagos will witness massive infrastructure development in 2017

Lagos State governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode on Thursday said his administration has kept faith with the electioneering campaign promises made to Lagosians, assuring that the state would witness quantum leap in infrastructural development in 2017.

Governor Ambode said this while speaking at the grand finale of the campaign of All Progressives Congress (APC) for Saturday’s bye-election for Ifako-Ijaiye Federal Constituency of the House of Representatives, assuring that no electoral promise made by him would go unfulfilled.

At the rally, the candidates of Action Alliance (AA), Yussuf Olawale Abdulfatai and that of Alliance for Democracy (AD), Michael Adebayo also stepped down from the Saturday’s election, and urged their supporters and the people to vote for the APC candidate, Hon. Nurudeen Olaitan Akinwunmi.

The governor said he had operated under that principle ever since assuming office and remained committed to fulfilling all pledges and doing even more.

Governor Ambode, who thanked all those who believed in him and voted for him, said his government had faithfully carried out the promise of transforming the communities and running an all inclusive administration where no one was left behind.

He said it was evidently clear to all that Lagos was working, saying that the pledge to transform the communities, among others, had been fulfilled and was still ongoing.

“I like to start by thanking you for believing in us; thank you for believing in Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. The past, the present and the future belong to all of you and so far that we are all working together, we know that Ojokoro and Ifako-Ijaiye will move forward and there will be tremendous progress in this community,” Governor Ambode said.
