The Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, has described the victory of the Governor of the state, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode; and the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the state Elections Petitions Tribunal as well deserved.
Speaking with journalists in Lagos after the tribunal verdict, Rt. Hon. Obasa, stated that the tribunal verdict was a further confirmation that indeed the people of the state voted for Ambode and the APC.
“We are happy with the verdict and it was a further proof of the legality of our Governor’s and APC’s victory during the election,” he said.
According to him, Lagosians have always abide themselves with the progressives hence the results of the last elections in the state should not have generated any contention.
“Lagosians have always cast their lots with the progressives, therefore, the results of the elections in the state in which APC symbolised by our Governor and other candidates of the party won convincingly should not have given room for any contention.
“But this is democracy and democracy allows one to challenge elections results which the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate have done and the Tribunal has judiciously done its job.
“I’m using this opportunity to congratulate our Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode and our great party on this well deserved victory and pray that this particular victory serves harbinger for more victories from the Election Tribunal,” the Lagos Assembly Speaker said.
