Some residents of Lagos staged a protest in support of the re-election bid of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.
The protesters, who staged a rally in Ikeja, requested that automatic ticket be given to the governor based on his achievements.
They had frowned at the choice the national party leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, had made over him, saying that the good work of Ambode would always speak for him.
Speaking to journalists, one of the protesters, Charles Akube, said that the good work of Ambode was enough testimony that the governor deserved a second term.
“Tinubu should not use politics to spoil the development that is currently going on in Lagos. Ambode has done enough to merit a second term. Looking at all the construction works going on all over Lagos State, we all know that this man deserves a second term to continue the good work”, he said.
