Itesiwaju Ipinle Eko Vanguard, a group comprising social activists, non-governmental organizations, artisans, youths and political groups which has been canvassing for 5 million votes for Governor Akinwunmi Ambode the Executive Governor of Lagos state in 2019 Governorship election, has launched a house to house campaign teams in Amuwo Odofin Local Government and Surulere Local Government of Lagos State to ensure PVC for eligible voters.

Mr. Joe Igbokwe who spoke to newsmen at an event to announce the gesture at an APC event in Surulere Local Government, said that nothing will change the 5 million vote targeted for the Governor Akinwunmi Ambode in the coming 2019 election.

Igbokwe said, apart from the performance of the governor in improving the infrastructure of the city, his handling of the state’s economy was another major reason why Lagosians must support him and mobilize for more votes.

He said Ambode would further transform the state to a mega city if given another chance. “In recognition of his hard work, we are going to come out in millions to support him once again through voting. Under his leadership, we have seen physical development across Lagos.”

Mr Joe Igbokwe thanked Hon Femi Gbajabiamila for his role at the National Assembly and he showered his appreciation on the Itesiwaju Ipinle Eko Vanguard for their tireless assurance on the 5 million targeted votes, “am glad to join this force,” he said.   

The Apex Chairman of Itesiwaju Ipinle Eko Vanguard, Hon. Segun Olulade welcomed Comrade (Engr.) Valentine Oluwaseyi Buraimoh, the Executive Chairman of Amuwo Odofin Local Government, and also called on Lagosians to obtain their Permanent Voter Cards ahead of the 2019 general election. He said they were satisfied with the governor’s performance in office and would support him again.

Olulade said, “I think we should take a good look at this House to House PVC campaign team setup in Lagos Sate today, for us to understand why it is being done. As we speak, it is as if the good people of Lagos have collectively decided to keep the governor on the job beyond 2019. Simply put, it is because he has performed. All the people and groups endorsing him gave that same reason and we can all see his achievements speaking for him.”

Seyi Bamigbade, the Coordinator General of Itesiwaju Ipinle Eko Vangaurd, thanked Mr. Igbokwe for the role he played when the PDP called for his arrest when he called for the Ambode 5 Million Man March in January this year.

“In all of his numerous achievements, which we can see and feel across the nooks and crannies of the state, Ambode has been stylish and meticulous in manner in the way he runs the affairs of the state. Even the opposition in the state has agreed that Ambode has delivered on his election promises. He promised to make Lagos work for everyone and he has done that for all to see. Lagos is Safe in Ambode Hands,” Bamigbade said.
