Local Government employees endorse Ambode

The governorship bid of the Lagos State All Progressives Congress candidate, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, received a major boost on Monday after the state chapter of the National Union of Local Government Employees endorsed him.
Similarly, the Lagos Waste Management Authority and the Local Government Service Commission endorsed the APC candidate.
The union made its position known at this year’s Local Government Workers’ Day which was attended by Ambode.
The local government union said it picked Ambode because he started his civil service career at the Lagos State Waste Disposal Board (now LAWMA) as Accountant Grade II and rose to become the Auditor-General for local government.
Speaking at the event, the NULGE President, Mr. Lasisi Ayinde, said that the union was elated about the emergence of a local government man as a governorship front runner in the state, “Your Excellency Mr. Governor in-waiting, I have the mandate of our workers in all the 20 local governments and 37 Local Council Development Areas, LAWMA, Pensions Board and Local Government Service Commission of Lagos state, to adopt you as our candidate.
