Bola-TinubuNational leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on Sunday night expressed joy over the emergence of the party’s candidate in the Lagos State governorship election, Akinwunmi Ambode, as governor-elect.

He ascribed the victory to the party’s members’ hard work.

Tinubu, a former governor of the state, said Ambode’s victory was predicated on the radical transformation and well-articulated programmes he started 16 years ago, hinting that Lagos would start another race in its transformation drive given its alignment with the federal government.

He also hailed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the election, Mr Jimi Agbaje, for his statesmanship, describing him as a man of good values and character.

“We must bear in mind that a good democrat must accept result of a free and fair election”, he said.

Tinubu said the PDP candidate showed “good spirit” by calling Ambode on telephone to congratulate him and for accepting his party’s loss in Saturday’s poll.

Tinubu said: “Our victory in Lagos is as a result of hard work I started 16 years ago. Consistent radical transformation of Lagos and well-articulated programmes, including education, infrastructure, urban renewal, innovative system of finance, knowledge-based economy and job creation in partnership with private sector. That resulted in leap development of Lagos”.

The APC leader said there would always be a winner in all contest, congratulating Ambode for his success.
