Akinwunmi Ambode, governor of Lagos, says he is in support of the position of Bola Tinubu, national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on restructuring.

Last month, Tinubu said restructuring is the only way for the country to make real progress.

Speaking at a town hall meeting on Tuesday, Ambode said Tinubu’s position is that of the APC.

He said the clamour across the country for restructuring was not out of place as the “current political structure was seriously hindering the country’s growth”.

“I support true federalism; I support all the issues raised by Asiwaju; we are on the same page. That is the page of APC; that is where we are and that is what we are committed to. Like I have always said, we need to deal with issues that relate to devolution of powers,” Ambode said.

“Like somebody said, if I have more resources, all these items that you are coming to raise here, once you raise it, I will just say done.

“I need more money. So, why should somebody be saying they are the ones in charge of inland waterways when the waterways is transporting my own people and my own services and when there is a law about it.”
