I pledge to Lagos my State to be forthright, dedicated and honest, to serve the State with all my passion, to promote the welfare of its people regardless of age, gender, tribe or religion, and to enhance its status, through good governance, selflessness and accountability. So help me God!

I Akinwunmi Ambode invite you all, Lagosians and non-Lagosians alike, boys and girls, young and old, men and women, those physically able and those with challenges; I invite you all regardless of your tribe, cultural background and religious persuasion; I invite you to help me and the government I hope to establish, with your support, and the help of God, to build the Lagos of our dreams.
