Lagos State governor-elect, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, yesterday said his victory at the April 11 polls has changed 60 years history of the state, even as it marked the commencement of social and moral contracts.
Ambode, in his acceptance speech made after the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC declared him winner of the 2015 Lagos State governorship election, noted that no one would be victimized for voting against him at the polls.
He stated that the victory was an outstanding feat, saying “By affirming your faith in the APC and in me, you have, for the first time in 60years, married progressive governance at the national level with progressive government at the state level.
“I am humbled that you have placed your trust and faith in me. The love of this state and our common belief in what we can accomplish, our belief in what this state already is, and in what it is destined to become binds us together in a social and moral contract of high purpose.
“I shall honor that contract with every fiber of my being. This day I pledge to you that I shall devote myself to bringing even greater prosperity, growth and development to every inch of this state, that I shall build on the legacy and progress of the Bola Tinubu and Babatunde Fashola administrations, I shall bring the best of Lagos into my government and I shall make you proud and glad that you chose me as your next governor.’’
