The tussle over who gets the Lagos governorship ticket and fly the flag of the All Progressives Congress 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.
While describing the APC as a great party, he stressed that the interests of the State must always supersede that of any person or group.
He further urged Lagosians to support the party’s gubernatorial candidate in the 2019 elections and work for the success of the party.
He added that he 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.
