Muhammadu Buhari, Nigeria’s president-elect, says Lagos state is too important for the All Progressives Congress (APC) to lose to the opposition.

Speaking at the APC rally in Orile area of the state, Buhari said with its huge investments, Lagos could not be toyed with.

He urged Lagos residents to vote en masse for Akinwunmi Ambode, the party’s governorship candidate in Saturday’s election.

“Defy all elements, whatever it may be, and vote for APC from top to bottom,’’ he said.

“Don’t attempt to be on the wrong side of the centre because we are now the centre. Tell your neighbours, your relatives and even the opposition party to please bury the hatchet and fall in line and vote for APC.”

He assured the people that they would benefit a lot if APC wins the election.

Buhari said that he would prioritise investment in Lagos infrastructure, noting that the state is a “mini Nigeria”.

“Gov. Babatunde Fashola has told me how much the state has been spending to maintain federal government infrastructure, including roads, buildings and other institutions.

“I urge Ambode, who will be the next governor of the state, to harass me sufficiently to honour my undertaking.”

Buhari commended Bola Tinubu, national leader of the party, for all he had done in terms of mobilising revenue to sustain development in the state.

He also commended Fashola for his commitment to the state and to the country.
