A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Epe area of Lagos, Alhaji Biliaminu Mustapha has hailed former Akinwunmi Ambode saying his 4 years tenure was better than Bola Ahmed Tinubu‘s 8 years.
Alhaji Mustapha said Ambode is one of the best governors Nigeria has ever produced stating his four years in charge of governance in Lagos was an eventful one as he achieved what some state governors couldn’t achieve in eight years.
Specifically speaking, he said Ambode’s 4 years is better than the eight years spent by Asiwaju Bola Tinubu from 1999 to 2007 in terms of infrastructure, reduction in crime rate as well as other key sectors.
“I think the governor should not have any regret about not getting a second term because he has achieved a lot during his four years reign. As Muslims, we believe nothing can happen without Allah’s permission. Maybe Allah wants Ambode to serve just for one term and he just used the leaders who opposed him as the instrument to make that happen”.
“Ambode did a lot in just four years things many governors couldn’t do in eight years. To me, I think his four years as governor is better than Tinubu’s eight years in terms of revenue generation, Infrastructure and reduction of crime rate across the state”.
“Like Fashola, he will be useful to President Muhammadu Buhari at the national level,” he said.
Ending decades of military rule in Nigeria, May 29, 1999 was the beginning of liberation for Nigerians thus the tag " Democracy day"
