The Senator representing Lagos West constituency, Senator Ganiyu Olanrewaju Solomon (GOS) has charged Lagosians to ensure that they vote for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Saturday?s governorship election because the state can no longer afford to play the opposition in the country anymore.

It would be recalled that the APC defeated the Peoples? Democratic Party (PDP) in the March 28 presidential elections. The APC displaced the PDP from the centre in the presidential race on March 28, but historically, the ruling party at the national level has never controlled Lagos state.

In the first and second republics, Lagos was controlled by opposition parties, while the opposition party has also been ruling the state since 1999.

But Solomon, who represents Lagos west in the senate, has asked that Lagosians vote for APC in a statement issued on Tuesday.

He said: ?On Saturday, March 28, our great party, the APC made history at the presidential poll with General Muhammadu Buhari emerging the next president of the country.

The victory was well deserved after a long haul of political warfare. But the battle is not over yet. ?This Saturday, April 11 has been slated for the governorship election and Lagos cannot afford to play the opposition at a period the APC is the government at the centre.

?This time in Lagos, continuity is both constructive and imperative and in fact, sacrosanct because it can only be sustained by the APC ? tested and trusted.

?Let?s Vote Akinwunmi Ambode for governor and all the APC candidates for the state assembly. A consolidation of the gains so far is not negotiable and the future cannot be put away inexplicably. ?Let?s do it again, Lagos.?

Solomon was among the governorship hopefuls that contested the APC Lagos primaries but lost to Ambode.
