SOLOMON Adeola, senator representing Lagos West Senatorial District, has said that the victory of Akinwunmi Ambode, governor of Lagos State at the Lagos State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal is a vindication for the All Progressives Congress APC. According to him, Ambode’s victory over his opponent, Jimmy Agbaje is a further proof of the preference of the people of Lagos state for progressive developmental politics as represented in the APC
Adeola commended the tribunal for not wasting time and resources in unnecessary litigation aimed at truncating the express mandate of the people for Ambode on April 11, adding that his election was not only free and fair but merited on the basis of the performance of APC government in Lagos State over the years.
The senator, who represents the largest Senatorial District in Nigeria, said he had no doubt that the governor would take Lagos State to new heights in developing the megacity of Lagos State. He added that federal legislators would do everything to complement his development initiatives now that APC is controlling the federal government.
“Governor Ambode is a seasoned administrator with vast experience of Lagos State and the developmental challenges of various areas of the state. His victory during the election and now at the Tribunal is a good omen for development in Lagos State” Adeola stated in a statement signed by Kayode Odunaro, media adviser to the senator and made available to Realnews on July 2.
