Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has declared his intention to run for a second term in office on the platform of the All Progressives Congress.
Ambode spoke at the open ground in Alausa, while addressing party faithful who thronged the place, telling them there was more to be done and he was not tired.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Ambode had earlier picked his nomination form for a second term at the APC Headquarters in Abuja.
“In these three and a half years as your governor, I have seen visible proof that we can achieve unbelievable things when we all come together with no more than our belief in our dreams.
“We achieved because you believed. But there is still a lot more to be done. But I am not daunted. I am not tired and I am sure you feel the same way because we all envision a better Lagos, a Lagos of our dreams,” he said.
The governor said he had collected his nomination form earlier in the day, and asked for support as he sought to continue with the mandate to steer the affairs of the state.
“I ask you to believe again, and together, let’s achieve more.
“Exactly four years ago, I called on you to join me in a journey of selfless service to build a secure and prosperous Lagos State driven by a vibrant economy and supported by quality service, equity and justice.
“You believed in me and gave me your support,” Ambode said.
He thanked Lagosians for believing in him and his government as well as their support so far throughout this administration.
“I thank all members of our great party, the All Progressives Congress; our political leaders, most especially our National Leader, Chief Bola Ahmed Tinubu, for giving me the platform to contribute to the further growth and development of our state.”
Ambode also shared a photo of himself picking up his nomination form at the All Progressives Congress (APC) national headquarters.
He captioned the photo; “I was at the National Headquarters of our party, the All Progressives Congress, to collect the Nomination Forms to re-contest for the office of Governor of Lagos State. Once again, I count on your support.”
