LAGOS — A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and Lagos East Senatorial aspirant, Chief Lanre Razak, has said that his support for a second term in office of President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Akinwumi Ambode of Lagos State was borne out of their outstanding performances so far in their first term.
Razak, who was a former Public Transportation Commissioner in Lagos state, stated that he is comfortable with Ambode’s second term, stressing that, “if Ambode has another four years, Lagos State would be fantastically developed and the people would be happy for it.”
On President Buhari, he said: “The rot of 16 years cannot be wiped out with three years efforts, more importantly, with the type of National Assembly leadership we have, which has proved beyond doubt that they are not in the party.
“We will, therefore, allow Buhari to complete another four years to establish dignity of labour, to establish transparency, to stop corruption and to put a foundation on which the government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria can be built so we can have a situation that is happening in Lagos State today.
“Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu laid the foundation for good governance in Lagos State in 1999. And since then, we have been putting responsible, reliable and effective people in governance; Lagos State has continued to develop. And that is why we are proud of Tinubu.”
And that is why we are also happy that he is solidly behind the Buhari’s government and its aspiration to continue for another four years.
“Of course, the Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun has confessed that they borrowed some inputs from Tinubu’s system of government and that they are applying it in the Federal Government. If that continues between now and 2023, Nigeria would be a better place to live in.”
