Former Governor of Lagos State and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, on Monday described Mr Akinwunmi Ambode, the party’s governorship candidate in Lagos State, as one of the most brilliant minds in financial accountancy.
Tinubu spoke at the APC governorship campaign rally in Ojo area of the state, urging the people to give Ambode their votes in the Feb. 28 governorship election.
According to the former governor, Ambode was a credible candidate who should be given the chance to continue with the excellence for which Lagos was noted.
“Today we present one of the most brilliant minds in financial accountancy; one of the most intelligent in financial management.
“He is tested, trusted, capable, visionary and an achiever”, he said.
Tinubu recalled that Ambode performed well when he was the state’s Accountant-General.
“Lagos State progressed when Ambode was the state’s Accountant-General.
“You need creative, great, visionary leaders and an intelligent government to manage the economy.
“That is why a disciplined Buhari and a visionary Ambode will want to create a better economy for Nigeria”, Tinubu said.
The APC leader stressed that Ambode would continue with the brand of excellence that had been created by the party in the state, if elected governor.
He also appealed to residents to obtain their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) to enable them to perform their civic rights.
Earlier, Ambode appealed to the people of Ojo and residents in the state to vote for him, assuring them that he would take the state to the next level, if elected.
“I will build more hospitals in Ojo and will ensure that the road from Mile 2 to Badagry is completed; the light rail from Okokomaiko to CMS will also be completed”, Ambode said.
