By Olaolu Oladipo, Lagos

Members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) who contested tickets of the party for seats in the state’s House of Assembly in the last 2015 general elections have called on Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to run an all-inclusive government.This is coming just as the group has also extolled the performance of the governor in his 365 days in office, saying he has kept faith the expectations of the people of the state.

At a world press conference in Lagos on Sunday, the Public relations Officer of the group, Mutiu Olakunle Alimi said Ambode has done extremely well and thus deserve everybody’s commendation.

“We hereby congratulate the amiable, visionary governor of Lagos state, His Excellency, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode for his unrivalled performance in bringing modern, meaningful development to Lagos state and government closer to the great people of Lagos in the last 365 days in office than any successive government in the state.

“It is an undisputable fact, that you have done exceedingly well in just 1 year in office. you have virtually touched every facet of governance and have given us hope, with you at the saddle of  governance; Lagos state could attain that dream of being a super mega city in Africa within the shortest possible time. You have done excellently well in the areas of infrastructural development, security, transport, agriculture, civic engagement among others.

“We are very happy to be identified with the great success your administration has rendered within 365 days in office.

“We are optimistic, you will consolidate on your achievement and touch other areas that could make a significant difference for the people of Lagos state in the remaining part of your tenure.
The group also praised the National Leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu for his immense contributions to nation building and the success story of Lagos state.

The group however appealed to Ambode to make his government accessible and all inclusive.

They noted that the LAHA 2015 aspirants are being chided away from contributing their own quota to the development of the state.

They averred that, “our group, Lagos State House of Assembly Aspirants 2015, admonish our party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, to involve the state assembly aspirants in the activities of
the party in the state.

“The state Assembly aspirants should be seen and perceived as major stakeholders in the affairs of the party in the state instead of being isolated and seen and treated as rebels and outcast by the party
officials both at the state and local government levels.”
