Ten governorship candidates in Lagos state have stepped down for Akinwunmi Ambode, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in the April 11 election.

The candidates also directed all their supporters to vote for Ambode and other APC candidates in the state house of assembly election.

The parties and their candidates are Adeshina Buruji, Accord Party (AP), Obadia Akinola, Independent Democrats (ID), Ishola Aregbesola, Action Alliance (AA), and Babatunde Sarumi, Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN)‎.

Others are the African People’s Alliance (APA), Abiodun Oyegunle; KOWA Party, Victor Adeniji; All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Adeshina Olayokun; (NNPP), Sesan Olatunde; the Citizens Popular Party (CPP), Sylvester Eze and the Progressives People’s Alliance, Pauline Ojochide.

Akinola of the Independent Democrats (ID), who spoke on behalf of the other candidates at the declaration event in Lagos, said that the decision was taken in the interests of the people of Lagos state.

“What we are saying is that we, the 10 undersigned governorship candidates, have shelved our individual gubernatorial ambitions and aspirations as we unanimously give our unwavering solidarity to work together with Ambode of the APC,” he said.

“By this, we enjoin all our teeming supporters across the state to take this declaration and sound it loud and clear that Ambode is the only candidate to take Lagos to the next level.

“We will be knocking our heads against a brick wall, if we fight against an obvious winning team.”
