All Prgressives Congress (APC) Professionals Council has congratulated Fuad Laguda on his election victory in the Surulere federal constituency of Lagos State held on Saturday.
The council in a congratulatory message signed by its national director-general, Dr. Seyi Bamigbade, said Laguda’s landslide victory in the election was an indication of the people’s satisfaction with the leadership of the party.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had on Saturday declared Laguda winner of the bye-election after he polled a total of 11,203 votes to defeat his opponent, Jerry Afemikhe of the Peoples Democratic Party, who garnered 278 votes
Laguda will replace Hon Femi Gbajabiamila, the chief of staff to President Bola Tinubu who resigned his membership of the 10th National Assembly to take up the appointment.
Bamigbade said the victory of the party’s candidate is an indication that the people of Lagos are happy with the track record of the APC in the state and the enviable antecedents of Gbajabiamila.
He expressed confidence that Laguda would justify the mandate of the people of the constituency by entrenching effective performance as the people’s representative.
The council also passed a vote of confidence on President Bola Tinubu and his economic blueprint, expressing hope that the economic challenges facing the country will soon be a thing of the past as the policies being put in place to create wealth, generate employment and alleviate poverty will soon be on their full swing.
