Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has denied working for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in secret in order to win the 2019 governorship election in the state

The governor said he remains committed to the All Progressives Congress (APC) and has vowed to help deliver the state to the party in 2019.

Ambode spoke on Saturday in his home town, Epe  when he met with leaders of the party in the zone

Ambode said it became imperative for him to meet with them to let them know that all members must submit to the decision of the party.

There were rumours that the governor was working for the PDP following the defection of one of his loyalists, Wasiu Oluwo to the PDP

He said: “All of us are brothers and sisters because this is a close-knit community. It is now time for us to work together for the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari and election of Sanwo-Olu because Epe cannot be left behind. I know that in view of what happened, some people are still aggrieved but what I want you to know is that there is no way PDP will work for the development of our division like APC.

“We are also all aware that for the past sixteen years of PDP, they did not do anything in Epe division and it is only the APC that has been doing something for Lagos and for the country. I want to assure you Epe will benefit more if we vote for APC.

“All my achievements in the last three and half years will be improved upon if Sanwo-Olu wins and so I want to urge you all to come out and vote for APC because that is how we can secure the future of our children and this division.”

Also speaking at the meeting, Deputy Governorship candidate of APC in the State, Dr Obafemi Hamzat thanked Ambode and all the leaders in the division, saying the Governor displayed unusual maturity and character which was confirmed that he is a man with a large heart.

“I want to thank Governor Ambode for being a man with a large and great heart. What you are doing is unusual and I want to assure you that you have a future and that future will be very soon. We will do everything to protect your interest and that of Epe division.

“Governor Ambode has done his best and we will do our best to continue with his legacies and build on what the governor has done to further develop our dear state,” Hamzat said.
