|Governor Lagos state, Akinwunmi Ambode|
He said the victory was an affirmation that Lagosians had confidence in the party. The party’s chairmanship and councillorship candidates were all declared winners in the 57 councils by the Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission.
Ambode, in a congratulatory message, said the development was a victory for democracy and the people at the grass roots.
He said, “This victory is a confirmation of the trust that Lagosians have in the party. In that regard, I like to congratulate our great party, the All Progressives Congress, for the landslide victory at the Saturday election in all the 57 councils.
“I particularly note the peaceful conduct of the electorate, who came out to exercise their franchise in favour of their preferred candidates despite the heavy rain. This will go a long way to strengthen our resolve to push ahead with our vision to transform the local government system.”
While congratulating LASIEC for the success of the election, Ambode said the outcome of the poll was evidence that the people had keyed into his vision to evolve participatory governance, adding that his administration would not relent in promoting good governance.
He urged those aggrieved with the result to channel their grievances through the appropriate quarters rather than resort to self-help.
