A group under the All Progressives Congress in Lagos, Igbo Vision, has endorsed the state governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, for a second term in office.

Addressing journalists at a briefing, the group said apart from the performance of the governor in improving the infrastructure of the city, his handling of the state’s economy was another major reason why they were supporting him.

A member of the group and Publicity Secretary of the APC in Lagos, Mr. Joe Igbokwe, said Ambode would further transform the state to a mega city if given another chance.

He said, “In recognition of his hard work, we are going to come out in millions to support him once again through voting.

“The Igbo, under the aegis of Igbo Vision, supported Ambode to become governor in the face of victimisation; we are going to do it again.

“Under his leadership, we have seen physical development across Lagos. We want this to continue.”

Vice President, Association of Ndieze Igbo in Diaspora Worldwide, Mr. Uche Dimgba, while calling on members to obtain their Permanent Voter Cards ahead of the 2019 general election, said they were satisfied with the governor’s performance in office and would support him again.
