Akinwumi Ambode

Following his long silence since leaving office in 2019, the immediate past governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode has advised Nigerian youths to register and get their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) to vote in the 2023 elections.

Ambode, who broke his long silence via a post shared on his official Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages told the youths that power is in their hands.

He also acknowledged the endorsement of Lagosians for his contributions to the development of the state

“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 had since leaving office in 2019 preferred to be silent on political matters in Lagos state and in Nigeria generally.

He served just one term 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.

This made him the first governor of Lagos State to stay in office for four years since the return to democracy in 1999.
