There was a mild drama yesterday when several supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, ran into a campaign train of Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, alongside Mr Babatunde Fashola, the governor of Lagos at Alaka Bus Stop, Surulere.
The PDP supporters allegedly abandoned their train, folded their umbrella and threw away all other party souvenirs in exchange for those of the APC and joined the APC train shouting “Change, Change, Change.”
A source, who witnessed the dramatic scenario summed up the experience, saying; ‘’It appears that Lagosians believe that Ambode represents the continuity they want and not to exchange the progress and prosperity of Lagos for what the PDP epitomizes at the national level.
‘’The people of Lagos have heard the voice of God and now they are echoing the change that they truly want.
‘’The crowd escorted Ambode and Fashola to the venue of the campaign rally at Shitta, Surulere where he thanked them for the show of love and acceptance and promised not to let them down if elected governor on February 28; pointing out that they can trust him having criss-crossed the state for 27 years serving on one local government or the other.
‘’He said he knows where the shoe pinches and would surely give attention to the welfare of the people of Lagos. Ambode is ready to take Lagos to the next level.’’
