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.
