The Students Union Government (SUG) of the Lagos State University(LASU) has endorsed Mr Akinwunmi Ambode as the next governor of Lagos State.
In a speech by the Students Union President, Mr Nurudeen Yusuf, at a mega rally of the All progressives Congress (APC) in Ojo, he said that they had weighed the two major contenders for the post, Mr Jimi Agbaje of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Akinwunmi Ambode of the (APC), before making up their mind.
Nurudeen leading the students who were in their tens and thousands to drum up support for Ambode, said that their decision was based on his experience, competence, integrity, adding that they see him as a visionary leader who would listen to their yearnings and aspirations. They said the 27 years experience of Mr Ambode would give him the edge to keep the ball rolling if eventually voted in as Governor, adding that he would continue with the massive infrastructural development that would make the university a world-class institution.
The students eulogised the academic achievements of Ambode as exemplary just as they look forward to his mentorship as a scholar and their governor. They believe that his programme for the educational development of Lagos would give them a better deal. They said Ambode is not only better but the man of the moment who is ready for the job of taking Lagos to the next level.
