January 4, 2015 – Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola today called on residents of the state to vote the All Progressive Congress APC governorship candidate, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode during the election to enable him complete the good works he has started.
Fashola who was speaking at a rally in Surulere said the job of building Lagos is already half done and yet to be completed.
He explained that though he has been widely acclaimed for the work he is doing in the state, the job is yet to be completed, adding that Lagosians have the opportunity of getting the job completed if they vote for the All Progressives Congress governorship candidate, Akinwunmi Ambode.
He added that the election of APC candidate as governor would enable Ambode to reinvest in the future of the state.
“We have been doing good work and even doing the Federal Government’s work. Those at the centre only steal money. Government that loves the people will improve electricity. That is why you must get your Permanent Voter Cards to exercise your right. They have stated sharing it and I have been told that my PVC is ready, but I wont collect until you all collect your PVC.”
