Ambode gets endorsement at LG workers’ day
THE All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Lagos State, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, on Monday, joined members of the state’s National Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE), to celebrate this year’s Local Government Workers’ Day. Ambode was the special guest of honour at the event, which also saw the entire union members throw their weight behind his governorship ambition.
While congratulating the workers, Ambode described the local government and its workers as the pivotal force that drives the workings of any government. He stated his readiness to work at the local government level when elected as governor, to ensure that the merits of governance get to the people.
“The local government was where I started my career of service to our great state, and it has made me recognize this tier as the functional unit of government, which must be regarded as important by any serious administration that truly intends to govern.”
In his address, the state NULGE president, Comrade Lasisi Ayinde Akinsanya, said the union is elated about the emergence of a local government man as a governorship frontrunner, adding that Ambode’s rise in the cadre of service in the state has consistently made the union proud and that also serves as great encouragement for the union members.
