The Nigeria Progressive Ambassadors (NPA), a youth group in Lagos State, on Monday presented 20 air-conditioned buses to the APC governorship candidate in the state, Akinwunmi Ambode to boost his campaign.
While making the presentation, General Secretary of the group, Miss Vuakpor Ojo, described the organisation, as a body of forward-thinking Nigerians, who are ready to partner with people, who have the ability to give an enabling future to the state and sustain its excellence.
According to her, the NPA “strongly believes in the future of Lagos” and the country as a whole.
While commending Ambode for presenting himself for service, Miss Ojo stated, that “You are one of us, and this donation of 20 buses depicts our commitment to the cause to make a detribalised leader like you, who understands the cosmopolitan nature of Lagos, govern the state starting from May 29.“
On his part, Ambode said he will not discriminate against any tribe if he is voted into office.
He said, “Every group in Lagos is safe in my hands as governor. I will not discriminate against any religious or ethnic group. It is our Lagos and we must build it together.”
Ambode added, “In my acceptance speech after the primaries, I made this note that I will be a governor for all and Lagos is safe in my hands. I want to build on the foundation of unity, peace, progress and development laid by my predecessor.
“I am your best choice for a Lagos that must continue to thrive. And though tongue and tribe may differ we stand in brotherhood in Lagos from the smallest ethnic groups to the major ones. We are all stakeholders.”
