Akinwunmi Ambode, governor of Lagos state, has declared his intention to run for a second term.
The governor made the declaration at a gathering of All Progressives Congress (APC) members on Monday in Alausa, Ikeja, TheCable reports.
Ambode said the state has remained steadily prosperous because of the positive outlook of its residents but there is still a lot more to be done.
“In the last three and a half years, I have fulfilled my promises to you to make Lagos work for all,” he said.
“With your support, we have made Lagos a better place and changed the face of our state. I did not do it alone; we did it together, because you believed.
“Our state has remained steadily prosperous because of your positive outlook. I urge you to always stay positive in your personal and communal lives and continue to aspire to great things.
“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.
“So, I humbly call you again, to give me your support as I seek to continue with your mandate to steer the affairs of our state. I ask you to believe again and together, let’s achieve more.”
The governor, who had earlier picked up his expression of interest and nomination form at the national secretariat of the party in Abuja, thanked party members for giving him the platform to contribute to the growth and development of the state.
