Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode has congratulated the All Progressives Congress, APC, Governorship candidate, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his running mate, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat as well as the 40 House of Assembly candidates of the party for their resounding victory at the polls on Saturday.
Mr Sanwo-Olu was declared winner of the election and Governor-elect of Lagos by the Returning Officer of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC in the State, Professor Eyitope Ogunbodede, having polled 739,445 votes to defeat his closest challenger and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Mr. Jimi Agbaje who got 206,141votes.
In a statement, Governor Ambode said the feat was a reward for the vigorous campaign embarked upon by the APC candidate and his running mate across the length and breadth of the State.
According to Governor Ambode, Lagosians have spoken loud and clear with their votes and have overwhelmingly voted for a government they believe will continue the trajectory of growth that has been experienced in the last 20 years under the APC, noting that the people of Lagos have decided to stay on the path of infrastructural drive, economic growth and all round development.
Governor Ambode who thanked all Lagosians for keeping faith with the APC, said the resounding victory of the party at the Governorship and House of Assembly would ensure a seamless relationship between the executive and the legislative arms of government.
