Former governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, has advised youths to get their Permanent Voters Cards ahead of the 2023 general elections after appreciating Lagosians for endorsing his contributions to the development of the state.

Ambode, 58 on Tuesday made comments about the next political dispensation on facebook. The All Progressives Congress chieftain also reminded the public of the youths and the role they have to play in the next political dispensation.

He wrote, “After all we have been through, God has been faithful. Thank you for the overwhelming endorsement of our modest contributions to the growth of Lagos. It can only get better for Lagos, and indeed Nigeria. The youths are coming. The power is in their hands. Go and get your Permanent Voters Card (PVC) ready. Your future is NOW!”

Due to intra-party disagreement, Ambode who was Lagos governor from 2015 to 2019 lost his reelection to Babajide Sanwo-Olu at the APC primary.

On his political career as governor of Lagos State, Ambode would be remembered as the first Lagos governor to stay in office for four years since the return to democracy in 1999.
