Ambode missing at APC mega rally as Sanwo-Olu, Hazmat, others storm Ikorodu

Lagos State governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, was conspicuously missing as the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-olu and his running mate, Obafemi Hamzat, on Thursday stormed Ikorodu for a mega-rally.

NAN reports that Majority Leader of the Lagos House of Assembly (Ikorodu Constituency 1), Mr Sanai Agunbiade, who on Wednesday insisted that the Assembly may impeach the governor, was in attendance.

Sanwo-olu told the crowd that Ikorodu is an important part of the state which would attract government focus and infrastructure development if he becomes governor, urging them to give him their votes.
“We would continue to develop infrastructure, education, build stadium, roads and pay compensation,” Sanwo-olu said.

He promised that he would ensure that the Isawo-Agric and Igbogbo- Ebute roads were constructed and compensation paid to owners of houses destroyed because of the construction.

Hamzat, who also addressed the crowd, asked for their support and reassured the people that they would keep their promises.

The APC chairman in Lagos, Alhaji Babatunde Balogun, said that the party had embarked on many projects to better the life of residents of the state and urged also electorate to come en masse and vote for the party for the forthcoming elections.

He appealed to them to vote for all APC candidates from the Presidential to Governorship and state assembly and national Assembly elections.

”As you can see, APC is a progressive party and our mandate is to ensure everybody enjoys the dividend of democracy; go out and vote for candidates of APC in the coming election,” Balogun said.

Dr Idiat Adebule, Deputy of Lagos State, said there was no doubt that the party, at the federal level, had, in the last three and a half years, done a lot of infrastructure development, far beyond what the country witnessed in the past.

”As you can see, our party is battle ready for the election; in this party, there is prospect because we are progressive. I am assuring that they are not going to back from the developmental agenda of the party,” she said.
