Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State has congratulated the All Progressives Congress (APC) for recording landslide victory at the just concluded Local Government election across the State, saying that the development was an affirmation that Lagosians have confidence in the party.
It was a clean sweep for all the 57 chairmanship candidates of the APC as they were all declared winners by the Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC) defeating all their rivals in the keenly contested election.
Governor Ambode, in a congratulatory message on Sunday, said the development was not just a victory for democracy but the people at the grassroots, who he said would experience continuity with improvement in terms of dividends of democracy.
While congratulating the Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC) for the success of the election, Governor Ambode said the outcome of the election was a demonstrable evidence that the people have keyed into his vision to evolve participatory governance especially at the local level, just as he assured that his administration would not relent in promoting good governance both at the State and Local Government levels.
“I also like to congratulate LASIEC and all Lagosians for the success of the election which is reassuring about the culture of participatory democracy we are building in the State. It is on record that Lagosians comported themselves peacefully before, during and after the period of the election and this confirms the readiness of the people to support us all the way in our bid to truly take Lagos State to greater heights.
“On our part, we shall continue to work assiduously to move the State forward and make life better and comfortable for the people,” Governor Ambode assured.
