All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Lagos state, Akinwunmi Ambode today continued his engagement of the electorates in a town hall meeting, held this time in Kosofe Local Government Area (LGA) of the state.
Community Development Councils (CDC), artisans, market women and men, and youths formed part of the electorates that gathered from Agboyi-Ketu, Ikosi-Isheri and Ketu, to meet with the gubernatorial front runner; the productive interaction that ensued afterwards gave an insight to the government of inclusion that Ambode promises.
At the meeting, Ambode said that the incoming election is about the future of the children and the youth, noting further that, it is therefore important to engage the people using such interactive platforms, to give them the chance of making informed and wise voting choices that will guarantee good governance.
In a similar fashion to other town hall meetings already held, questions raised by the Kosofe people included those related to the desire for a government of recognition and inclusion, better livelihood, welfare and empowerment programmes, and more importantly, the roles of CDCs in governance.
The Lagos governorship hopeful gave reassuring responses to the questions, while boasting of an adequate understanding of those concerns raised by the people. He said that his promise of continued excellence in Lagos, sufficiently covers for all their concerns.
He assured the majority of artisans that they will be engaged in no small way through the many empowerment programmes designed to employ their expertise and expand their businesses. He said the markets will also benefit from the plan to improve infrastructure across board in the state.
Ambode restated his promise of giving governance back to the community and local government, adding that, “this is the mode of government that will ensure that the fruits of governance truly reach your hearts, homes and localities, and also ensure that no one is left out in the interest of good governance”.
Above all, Akinwunmi Ambode promised to fully employ his experience and try his utmost best to continue the giant strides that the great party, APC, has achieved in Lagos in the past years, much to the cheer of all present, party leaders and the electorates inclusive.
