The Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has declared that the All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship candidate in next year’s election, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, would sustain his policies if voted in as the governor of the state.
Ambode said this on Monday while presenting cheques to another batch of over 2,000 beneficiaries of the Lagos State Employment Trust Fund (LSETF) loan programme at the LTV Blue Roof, Ikeja.
While charging the beneficiaries to use the funds to grow their businesses and pay back as and when due, he expressed optimism about the sustainability of the scheme, saying it was instructive that Sanwo-Olu has already expressed commitment to the initiative.
The Governor said the initiative was meeting his objectives of creating jobs and contributing to the growth of the economy.
This is in addition to the over 10,000 beneficiaries who have received more than N7billion and have created over 25,000 new jobs in the last three years.
