I am ready for primaries-Ambode

Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode on Wednesday
expressed his readiness to participate in Saturday’s Primary
Election where members of the All Progressives Congress across
the State are expected to choose the party’s flagbearer through
direct primaries.
In a statement issued by the Commissioner for Information and
Strategy, Mr. Kehinde Bamigbetan, the Governor said he is
restating his readiness in line with the choice of the party in Lagos
State and the validation given to the direct primary preference by
the Governor’s Advisory Council (GAC).
“As our great party approaches Saturday, September 29th, 2018,
earmarked for the direct primary election to choose the candidate
to fly our party’s gubernatorial flag at the next general election, I
am happy to restate my commitment to participate in that process
having procured and submitted my nomination form and having
formally declared my intention to seek a second term to continue
on the path of unprecedented growth and development that our
State has witnessed since 2015”.
The Governor expressed profound gratitude to the National Leader
of the Party, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu; party elders and
executives; GAC members; all APC members and every Lagosian
“whose support, understanding and prayers have assisted me in no
small measure in being used as an instrument through which our
State has redefined the concept of greatness”.
The statement added that the Governor in seeking re-election is
approaching the founding fathers and teeming members of the
party with a “grateful heart, open arms and a pledge to open and
deeper attention to the concerns of this one, big family”.
It added that a return of the party’s ticket to Governor Ambode will
guarantee the stability of the State’s growing economy; ensure the
continuation of the growth and development it has witnessed over
time and ensure that the opposition does not take root in the State.
The statement congratulates the Governor’s co-contestants for the
courage and commitment to the party and urges party faithfuls to
come out en masse and vote peacefully in all the 20 Local
Governments and 245 wards where the election will take place.
