2027: Ambode’s candidacy is pushed by Lagos APC stakeholders



2027: Lagos APC Stakeholders Push For Ambode’s Candidacy

Stakeholders in the All Progressives Congress (APC) have emphasized that the party must offer former state governor Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode the governorship ticket, claiming he has the magic touch to turn the state around.

APC stalwart Oluwaseyi Bamigbade spoke on behalf of the stakeholders in Lagos, stating that during Ambode’s four years in office, the state saw significant infrastructure development.

This followed the revelation by the Islamic human rights group Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) that Muslims in Lagos State were hoping for one of their own to be elected governor in 2027.

According to him, a lot of groups are constantly hoping that Ambode will return in 2027 to carry on his midas touch in the development plan for Lagos. They feel that he should be given the chance to serve a second term in government as long as the constitution allows.

“He transformed Lagos, making it an investment destination for major businesses from within and outside the country,” Bamigbede stated, referring to the four years he had been in government. Millions of Lagosians were greatly impacted by him in every aspect of their lives, giving the impression that he had held office for a much longer time.

‘’He caused a paradigm shift, taking the government from the urban centre to the suburbs and opening up their narrow roads, giving them modern streets with lights that also link the arterial highways. It’s been a seamless arrangement that has prevented traffic glut on the expressways.

‘’Ambode’s health and education initiatives equally penetrated across suburbs in Lagos, giving opportunities to the son of a nobody to have access to free and decent education that would prepare them for the future. Understanding the place of science in the current educational system, during his tenure in office, Ambode established templates suggesting a progressive look into the future where science and tech will lead.’’

He added that the Ambode administration established the Lagos State Neighborhood Safety Agency saddled with the responsibility of collaborating with the Federal Police and other security outfits to ensure a safe Lagos State.

‘’The Lagos State Neighborhood Safety Corps is a model for community policing and other state governments are now replicating it in view of the prevalent security challenges,’’ he said.
