Politics God Backs me to be the Next Gov of Lagos State, says Ikuforiji



Mr Adeyemi Ikuforiji, the Speaker, Lagos State House of Assembly, on Monday indicated his intention to contest governorship election in 2015.

``I have called on God concerning my ambition and He has given me the approval to go ahead.

``I have not come here to formally declare my ambition to be governor of Lagos State, what I am doing is to inform you of my intention.

``When the time comes, I will do so and the whole of Lagos State will know," he said at an interactive session with staff of the House.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Ikuforiji, who is from Epe in Lagos East Senatorial District, emerged speaker for the second run in 2011 from Ikeja state constituency.

Mr Akinwumi Ambode, a one-time State Accountant-General also from Epe, has been ``endorsed’’ by the Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, as the ``anointed candidate’’ to succeed Gov. Babatunde Fashola.
