The Chairman, Oshodi-Isolo LG, Hon. Bolaji Muse-Ariyoh, who was represented by his vice TPL, Timothy Daisi Oso, viewed the day to be a moment for people to speak unequivocal and authoritatively to confirm the endorsement and their unflinching support for Ambode whose impact in Oshodi is indelible.

In the same vein, the representative of Oshodi-Isolo constituency I at the Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon. Hakeem Shokunle, admitted that the endorsement showed that the people of Oshodi are in support of His Excellency Ambode whose giant stride is seen in Oshodi and Lagos at large.

Also speaking, the Special Assistant to Governor Ambode on Civil Engagement, Hon. Taiwo Ayedun, said that the only panacea for developmental continuity in Oshodi, is for people to give Ambode their massive votes.
