Following the emergence of Akinwunmi Ambode as the governor-elect of Lagos State, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu reinstated the resolve of the party to serve the nation better.

He made this stance on Sunday, April 12, 2015 after the Independent National Electoral Commission announced Ambode as the winner which was also greeted with a call from his opponentl of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Jimi Agbaje.

While describing Agbaje as a man of good values and character, Tinubu hailed the PDP candidate for towing the lines of President Goodluck Jonathan by conceding defeat.

He opined that Ambode’s victory was achieved based on the radical transformation and well-articulated programmes he started 16 years ago, adding that Lagos would start another race in its transformation drive given its alignment with the federal government, a Daily Post report said.

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

“Our victory in Lagos is as a result of hard work I started 16 years ago. Constistent 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 the private sector. That resulted in leap development of Lagos.”
