All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship hopeful in Lagos, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, will today take a major boost towards his ambition as he inaugurates local Government grassroots committees to drive his campaign for the coveted seat of Governor of Lagos State.
The event which is expected to be graced by thousands of his supporters will take place at his newly opened Gbagada campaign office in the East Senatorial district of Lagos State.
The former Accountant General of the State who hails from Epe will also use the opportunity to interact with his supporters across the nook and crannies of State.
Mr. Ambode who has always insisted that the vision to be the next Governor of Lagos State is out of his burning desire to consolidate on the foundation laid by Asiwaju Bola Tinubu whom he described as the pathfinder of modern Lagos and Governor Babatunde Fashola, who he called the actualiser of modern Lagos.
He said having served as “labourer and carpenter” in the project of Lagos for 27 years out of the 47 years of existence of the State; he is eminently qualified to serve as the Project manager in taking Lagos to the next level of excellence.
Meanwhile, Mr Ambode has commiserated with the Sun Newspapers on the sudden death of its Vice Chairman, Mr. Dimgba Igwe which he described as an irreparable loss to Nigeria journalism and the Nigerian people.
Ambode in a statement through his Special Adviser on Communication, Mr. Idowu Ajanaku, said “we can only be consoled by the fact that Mr. Igwe his life by deploying his God-given talents and gifts for the benefit of the Nigerian masses and indeed mankind by his writings and diligence in the management of one of the foremost Nigerian newspapers.
Ambode prays for the management, members of staff of the Sun newspaper and the family of the deceased that God will grant them the fortitude to bear this loss. He said that the transient nature of life is brought again to the fore and counsel that men ought to live their lives in the consciousness of this fact such that they always think of how to live this world better than they met it.”
