Governor educates electorate ahead of governorship poll
The governor said over 52,000 votes were cancelled in the March 28 Presidential elections in the state.
Fashola, at the All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign rally in Agege area of the state, said that over 52,000 votes were cancelled in the March 28 Presidential elections in the state.
"I want all those 52,000 votes to be counted for APC in the April 11 governorship and House of Assembly elections.
"All of the 52,000 of you who had their votes cancelled, you have to do that work again in addition to those who will vote," Fashola said.
He said that every voter should ensure that the ink on his ballot paper is dry before dropping it in the ballot box.
Fashola urged the people to vote massively for the APC governorship candidate, Akinwunmi Ambode, saying that the state would do better if it is in the same party with the Federal Government.
The governor said that there will be synergy between the Buhari administration and a Lagos State APC- led administration.
"When Lagos was the capital, it used to get support for bridges, roads, security, ecology, among others.
"In the last 16 years, all federal government roads were maintained by the state government.
"We have spent N51 billion to maintain federal assets in the state," he said.
Fashola appealed to the people to support and vote massively for the APC in the governorship elections.
"The people of Lagos must continue on the path of excellence, which the APC represents.
"To enjoy Federal Government's benefits, vote Ambode," Fashola said.
