Ex-Lagos Governor Akinwumni Ambode resurfaces, tells young people power is in your hands

The immediate past governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode after a long silence since leaving office in 2019, has resurfaced perhaps ahead of the 2023 general elections.

It is however not clear if he will be re-contesting or acting as a player within the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, but his message Tuesday asked Nigerian youths to register and get their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) to vote in the 2023 elections saying power is in their hands.

Since he left office in 2019, Ambode has been missing at political functions. He was the first governor of Lagos State to stay in office for four years since the return to democracy in 1999.

Ambode made this known in a post shared on his official Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages.

He also appreciated Lagosians for endorsing his contributions to the development of the state and insist that “the future is now”.

“The youths are coming. The power is in their hands. Go and get your Permanent Voters Card (PVC) ready. Your future is NOW!

“After all we have been through, God has been faithful. Thank you for the overwhelming endorsement of our modest contributions to the growth of Lagos. It can only get better for Lagos, and indeed Nigeria,” Ambode said.

Ambode served as the governor of Lagos State from 2015 to 2019 and lost his re-election to Babajide Sanwo-Olu at the All Progressives Congress (APC) primary.
