Billionaire Otedola endorses Ambode for second term

Billionaire mogul Femi Otedola has endorsed the governor of the good people of Lagos, Akinwunmi Ambode for a second term.
The Forte Oil chairman listed many reasons why Governor Ambode should be allowed to continue in 2019.
Here are excerpts from his press statement:
“As a Lagosian and omo Ibile  (child of original regions that make up Lagos), I wish to expressly commend and appreciate the great good works our amiable Governor Ambode is doing in our dear Lagos – Nigeria’s No. 1 state.

“I have watched and followed keenly, in the almost last three years of the brilliant transformation projects across the state. No doubt, Ambode is building on the foundations laid by his good predecessors.

“He is building roads and bridges, schools and hospitals, water treatment plants, sewage and storm water drainages, solid waste management plants, and mass transportation infrastructure.

“You are all aware of the newly acquired mass transit buses that are going to be natural gas powered, in order for us in Lagos to be the first to comply with the global climate agenda of de-carbonisation.

“A clean and smart Lagos will catapult us to the modern global village and make us the number four economy in Africa.

“A good government is a reflection of an efficient and responsive bureaucracy. It is the catalytic driver for private sector growth. A bad and weak bureaucracy will produce nothing for the people.

“We are lucky to have an able governor like Ambode at the helm of our affairs. He is a knowledge-driven leader, hard-working, with a passion for our great state.

“My endorsement and recommendations for him to have a second term is performance-based and not just the usual conventional charade of second term endorsement in Nigeria.

“I am sure that all my respected compatriots, friends and followers will agree with me that Governor Ambode should please continue with his good job till 2023.

“Ambode, please CARRY GO the 2019 election and continue with your passionate work for Lagos State transformation.

“With your eyes on the ball, surely Lagos State will become the number three economy in Africa.”
