Ambode Fighting For His Political Life Says He Runs Inclusive government



Fighting for his political life, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode on Thursday evening took the campaign to rebrand his image as an aloof person to the Ikoyi Club where he said that he had in the last three and half years tried to practice inclusive governance.

Speaking at the 80th anniversary lecture of Ikoyi Club 1938, the Governor said deliberate initiatives were put in place since he assumed office to extend developmental strides to every nook and cranny of the State all in a bid to ensure inclusiveness.

The opposition to Ambode within his All Progressives Congress, APC has alleged among others that he is aloof from the people and the party

Governor Ambode, who has been a member of the club for over 10 years, said his administration had deliberately promoted the values of inclusiveness which Ikoyi Club had exemplified over the years, adding that he was proud to be associated with the club.

According to him, “I believe strongly that the value that we bring as a government which is what we have been pursuing in the last three and half years is to say that we should create values that promote inclusiveness which is what IKoyi Club is all about.

“This club is known for allowing everybody to join and in allowing everybody to have an entry into the club, we are promoting the real modern State situation that we want in the country.

“We can point to a lot of our sportsmen who have actually come all the way from the values that we get from this club and I must say I am very happy to associate myself with the achievements of Ikoyi Club,” he said.

He described the theme of the anniversary lecture: “Ikoyi Club At 80: Setting The Tone For Nation Building,” as apt, saying that it was on record that the club had contributed significantly to the promotion of family values and unity in the country.
