Lagos State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode, says he will lead a strong campaign to ensure victory for President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 elections. 

He also pledged his support for the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

The governor made the remarks on Tuesday at the Presidential Wing of the Muritala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos.

He spoke to reporters shortly after he accompanied President Buhari to perform the official commissioning of the new Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Border Post at Seme-Krake in Badagry.

“Just to also use this opportunity to let Lagosians (Lagos residents) know that we are heavily committed to the re-election of Mr President and you can see that his continuous visit to Lagos reiterates the fact that he is actually a lover of Lagos State and I am committed to ensuring his re-election,” said Governor Ambode.

“I have just accompanied Mr President to the Nigerian-Benin Border Post. So, what we have commissioned today is a joint Border Patrol post between Nigeria and the Republic of Benin and it is called Semo-Krake Border Post.”

According to a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Habib Aruna, the governor stated the importance for the APC to retain its leadership positions both at the Federal and the state levels.

“We are going to campaign heavily for him (Buhari),” he reiterated. “I am also committed to ensuring that the APC wins the governorship election come 2019.”

Ambode added, “We support the candidacy of Babajide Sanwo-Olu and we would make sure that APC retains Lagos State and the centre.”
