The governor of Lagos state, Akinwumi Ambode, has promised to deliver Lagos state for President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 presidential election.
Ambode said the process of totally delivering the state for the president would go a long way to deepen democracy in Nigeria.
The governor made this statement at a stakeholders’ and consultative meeting of APC chieftains, leaders and members which took place at the party’s secretariat, Acme, Ogba, Lagos state.
He also said that Lagos state has the numbers to make things happen for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019 presidential election.
Ambode said: "That means each member of our great party will now determine who emerges the President of this country and by so doing we will make a statement that Lagos state has the votes and Lagos state has the numbers to make things happen in this country.”
“By the time we count ourselves; by the time we count all the members of the APC in Lagos State, other parties will understand where APC is going and that is the assignment for all of us.
Each member will get a minimum of 100 new members and by the time we do our count, we should be so sure that that is what should happen in other states.
