The All Progressives Congress, Lagos chapter, said it owed its victory to Lagos residents, who voted immensely for its candidates in the Saturday, April 11 governorship poll in order to further entrench the culture of excellence in the state.
In a recent statement, Joe Igbokwe, Publicity Secretary of the APC in Lagos, said Lagos residents deserve thanks for not succumbing to intimidation from the opposition.
The alignment between Lagos and the government at the centre would better the lot of the state, he added.
Igbowe further said “Lagos APC appreciates Lagosians for their unflinching support, we celebrate their courage and steadfastness, we honour their patriotic disposition to continuity, we value so much their sense of judgement and the power of their strategic political decision at a time like this.
“Even in the face of harassment, intimidation and brigandage from the powers that be, APC lovers showed infectious and contagious love to the party and its leaders they have known for years now, APC lovers in Lagos did not succumb to blatant lies, hate campaigns, politics of the stomach, ethnic and tribal politics and politics of Naira, Dollar and Pound sterling.
“They were not swayed because they understand what is at stake. They did not see these inducements as low hanging fruits to take advantage of, they were smart, courageous and determined to use the power of votes to sustain the intelligent leadership and governance in Lagos.”
Conclusively Igbokwe said, “We appreciate Lagosians for understanding the urgent need at this critical point in the nation’s history to connect Lagos effectively to Abuja, Lagosians saw this great opportunity and grabbed it with both hands and the rest is now history.
“We have no doubt in our mind that the synergy between Abuja and Lagos will add great values to the project Nigeria and consequently make our country in many years to become credit positive.”Follow Us on Social Media
