Leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos East Senatorial District under the umbrella of the Apex group have passed a vote of confidence on Governor Ainwunmi Ambode, even as they extended their condolences to former Governor of the state and APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, over the loss of his son, Babajide Abdulkazeem Tinubu.
The group in a press statement issued by the Secretary, Honourable Joko Pelumi, said: “The leadership of the Apex group acknowledges the exemplary performance of our Governor, Ainwunmi Ambode, and his unparalleled drive towards urban and rural regeneration of all parts of our dear state through the numerous developmental projects he is undertaking.
“Leadership pledges their unwavering support and commitment to his administration and commits to a Vote of Confidence in the Governor for work already done and in further anticipation of more to be done.”
Hon. Pelumi said the Vote of Confidence was agreed when the group recently met to discuss “issues as they relate to the progress of their senatorial district, its residents and the fortunes of the APC within the District.”

At the end of the meeting, it was resolved that the General Assembly of the Senatorial District would hold within the coming weeks in order to bring all party faithful together with a view to forge ahead in unity.
