Lagos 2019: PSP Operators Declare Support For Ambode's Main Rival
The second term bid of embattled Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has suffered another setback.
The Association of Waste Managers of Nigeria on Tuesday made public its intention to support Ambode's main rival Jide Sanwo-Olu.
The Lagos APC will hold its primary next week to decide who will be its governorship candidate in 2019 election among the incumbent Ambode, Sanwo-Olu, and Hamzat.
At a press conference in their Mushin office on Tuesday, the PSP operators said they believed that Sanwo-Olu, if elected, would restore their jobs which the incumbent administration took and gave to a foreign company, Visionscape.
The Vice Chairman of the association, David Oriyomi, who addressed journalists alongside other executive members of AWAM, said the decision to back Sanwo-Olu, was in the interest of about 25,000 workers engaged by the 350 PSP operators, who had lost their jobs.
Oriyomi said the association boasts of no fewer than 150,000 voters at the grassroots, who would be mobilised to help Sanwo-Olu to achieve his governorship ambition.
He expressed the confidence that not only would the emergence of Sanwo-Olu as the next governor of Lagos State help to revive the business of the PSP operators, it would also restore Lagos to its former clean state.
