Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, has promised to lead a strong campaign for President Buhari and the APC govcernorship candidate in the state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to ensure they win the 2019 elections.
Ambode who lost the party ticket to Sanwo-Olu last month after a controversial state party primary, made the pledge at the Presidential Wing of the Muritala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos yesterday October 23rd.
He spoke to reporters shortly after he accompanied President Buhari to perform the official commissioning of the new Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Border Post at Seme-Krake in Badagry.
“Just to also use this opportunity to let Lagosians (Lagos residents) know that we are heavily committed to the re-election of Mr President and you can see that his continuous visit to Lagos reiterates the fact that he is actually a lover of Lagos State and I am committed to ensuring his re-election. We are going to campaign heavily for him (Buhari). I am also committed to ensuring that the APC wins the governorship election come 2019. We support the candidacy of Babajide Sanwo-Olu and we would make sure that APC retains Lagos State and the centre.” he said
