The All Progressives Congress (APC) stakeholders have stressed the need for the party to give the governorship ticket to former governor of the state, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode in 2027 saying he has the midas touch to transform the state.
Speaking on behalf of the stakeholders in Lagos, a stalwart of the APC, Oluwaseyi Bamigbade, said Ambode’s four-year tenure in the state witnessed massive development in infrastructural development.
This call came on the heels of Muslims in Lagos State yearning for one of their own as governor in  the state in 2027 as disclosed by an Islamic human rights organization, the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC).
Bamigbade said many groups are on a daily basis yearning for the return of Ambode in 2027 to continue his midas touch in Lagos development agenda, saying they believe he should be given the opportunity to have a second shot at the Government House as the constitution permits.
Bamigbade said, ‘’Within four years in office, he remodelled Lagos, making it an investment destination for big businesses from within and outside the country. He massively touched the lives of millions of Lagosians in every sphere, such that it would appear as if he had been in office for a far longer period.
‘’He caused a paradigm shift, taking the government from the urban centre to the suburbs and opening up their narrow roads, giving them modern streets with lights that also link the arterial highways. It’s been a seamless arrangement that has prevented traffic grid on the expressways.
‘’Ambode’s health and education initiatives equally penetrated suburbs of Lagos, giving opportunities to the son of a nobody to have access to free and decent education, that would prepare them for the future. Understanding the place of science in the current educational system, during his tenure in office, Ambode established templates suggesting a progressive look into the future where science and tech will lead.’’
He added that the Ambode administration established the Lagos State Neighborhood Safety Agency saddled with the responsibility of collaborating with the Federal Police and other security outfits to ensure a safe Lagos State.
‘’The Lagos State Neighborhood Safety Corps is a model for community policing and other state governments are now replicating it in view of the prevalent security challenges,’’ he said.
