Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) Lagos State chapter, hosted the All Progressive Congress (APC) governorship candidate of Lagos State, Akinwumi Ambode on Thursday in what was tagged an interactive session with Ambode.

The event, held at the Lagos Airport Hotel, Ikeja, had a full attendance of the organised labour in the state including representatives of pensioners.

 Lagos State chapter of the workers body, Comrade Idowu Adelakun, in his welcome address, commended Ambode for making it to the session, despite, according to Adelakun, his crowded schedule. The comrade then set an agenda for the candidate with an assurance to convince his members to vote for him.

He called Ambode to do something on the situation whereby factories are daily closed and turned to worship houses. This development, he said, has thrown his members out of job with attendant suffering. Adelakun also spoke on step-to-step conversion in civil service, plight of pensioners and proposed privatisation of Water Corporation.

“With your track record as former accountant General of Lagos State, we consider you as one of us. And this gives us the confidence that you will address issues affecting workers. Workers constitute about 65 percent of the electorate. This means you already have the advantage. We shall all be witness to your inauguration come May 29,” Adelakun said.

Ambode, in his speech, cleared the air on the allegation that he was suffering from mental instability. He accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of playing a dirty politics by spreading falsehood and assassinating his character. He said the effort is one of many they have in stock when they realise the sane was up for them.

 “They started from our presidential candidate, claiming he does not go to school, he is too old, he is sick and now on my turn. Let me use this opportunity to tell you that I am sane, healthy and ready to lead Lagos State to the next level. I am capable and I have experience required to administer the state having served in the state civil service for 27 years,” he said.
