• Receives defectors from PDP
Hundreds of members and admirers of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ayobo/Ipaja Local Council Development Area, LCDA, gathered together during the week with one aim in mind: to show support for Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s second term bid in 2019.
The members who came from all the wards in the LCDA spoke glowingly of the performance of the governor in the past three years which they say automatically qualifies him to come back for a second term.
Alimosho being the largest constituency in Lagos with the highest number of registered voters, the members promised to mobilise voters in the LCDA to vote massively for Ambode in 2019 to ensure he returns as governor.
They said although he has preformed wonderfully well they were not going to take chances, they would still go on massive sensitisation of the whole area to ensure Ambode clinches the bulk of the votes in Alimosho.
The chairman of APC in the LCDA, Elder Ayo Olofintuyi, used the occasion to formally welcome some defectors from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, led by Chidi Mbonu into the party promising them of equal treatment with other members.
Mbonu who was described as a great mobiliser said they were defecting because of the great work Ambode is doing in Lagos and promised to work with his people and other APC members in the LCDA to ensure that the party is voted back into power.
