The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress for the Lagos state 2015 general elections, Mr. Akinwumi Ambode, on Monday visited the state Governor, Babatunde Raji Fashola (SAN) in his office.
Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode was there to formally inform the Governor of his nomination as the APC gubernatorial candidate for the 2015 elections, while he also sought his support for the election.
The Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, had earlier urged Lagosians to vote for the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, to sustain the programmes of his administration.
Fashola stated that total support for the APC candidate would ensure continuity in the enjoyment of good governance and high performance in the state. He said, “I urge you all to support the new APC governorship candidate and make sure that the festival continues. You have a role to play; you have to register and you have to collect your Permanent Voter Cards and then you can use your vote to choose who you want.”
Mr. Ambode’s Monday’s visit to Fashola together with the Governor’s well-publicized congratulatory message to the APC governorship candidate is a strong indication that both of them will work together in the campaign to retain the seat of power in Lagos come the gubernatorial elections in 2015.
