A former Chairman of the club, Chief Hakeem Gbolahan Awe, reiterated the club’s stance while introducing the Lagos governorship hopeful, saying that, “Ambode’s unequalled academic strength and largely experienced administrative career, puts him in the best position as the leading candidate in this race, and we have an the rare opportunity to support and elect a befitting servant-leader for this great state”.

Speaking through their Chairman, the members took a step further to put their money where their mouth is by pledging to organize a fundraiser to support Mr. Ambode and ensure victory for his candidature at the poll.
