“We can attest to the fact that the governor has tried in the last three and half years in office as the executive governor of Lagos state,” he said.

He continued that; “He (Ambode) has delivered so many bridges, road infrastructures and created employment opportunities among others.

We are pleading with Asiwaju Tinubu and party leaders to allow Ambode to continue the good work he has started in Lagos.

“There are so many ongoing projects scattered across the state that should be allowed to be concluded by Ambode that started them.”
