A member of the Lagos State House of Assembly, representing Lagos Island Constituency 2, Wahab Alawiye-King, has praised the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, for his role in ensuring that Akinwunmi Ambode emerged winner of Saturday’s governorship election.
Alawiye-King, who spoke in an interview on Monday in his office at the Assembly complex, also congratulated residents of the state for voting Ambode as the governor.
He also showered encomiums on other APC leaders for ensuring victory for the party all through the electioneering period.
“Ambode’s victory is an evidence that the people of the state truly appreciates the efforts of the APC to make Lagos an envy of Africa.
“With the victory recorded by the APC in this election, it means the people of Lagos are not unmindful of the successes recorded by our party in the governance of the state.
“Whether we like it or not, Asiwaju Tinubu has taken up the responsibility of leading the Yoruba race and we must all come to terms with this fact. He started what has now metamorphosed into a national party and party at the centre of the Nigerian government. Today, we can see the spread of the APC,” he stated.
He, however, appealed to residents of the state to support the newly elected governor right from May 29 when he would be sworn-in so that his administration can succeed like the administrations of Tinubu and Fashola.
The lawmaker also congratulated his successor, Shakirudeeen Giwa, and the newly elected member for Lagos Island Constituency 1, Wasiu Eshilokun-Sanni.
