Ambode Concedes Defeat, Congratulates Sanwo-Olu


The drama over who gets the Lagos governorship ticket of the All Progressives Party in the 2019 general elections has come to a close as the incumbent Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, has conceded defeat.
The governor in a state broadcast congratulated the winner, Babajide Sanwo -Olu, and urged party members to queue behind him and ensure victory for the APC in 2019.

Ambode said, “Dear Lagosians, APC is a great party and the interests of our beloved State must always supersede that of any person or group. It is in this regard that I wholeheartedly congratulate the winner of the Lagos State APC Primaries, Mr. Babajide Sanwo -Olu and urge all Lagosians to immediately support our party’s gubernatorial candidate in the 2019 elections and work for the success of our dear party.
“As Governor, I will do everything possible to ensure a smooth transition in the remaining period of this administration and ultimately to the new Governor, come May 2019,” he said.
The governor, therefore appealed to all party members that “we remain one family and unite behind the candidate of the party, so that we can continue to move this state forward. The progress of Lagos state is non -negotiable. It is a project that I have passionately worked for in the last three and half years as your Governor and one to which I will forever be devoted.”
