More trouble as Tinubu dumps Ambode, endorses Sanwanolu as next Lagos Governor [VIDEO]


More trouble as Tinubu dumps Ambode, endorses Sanwanolu as next Lagos Governor [VIDEO]



Akinwunmi Ambode’s quest to be re-elected as Lagos State Governor for
a second term may have run into troubled waters as 50 council chairmen
loyal to Ahmed Bola Tinubu, Ambode’s estranged godfather, have met and
pledged their support for Jide Sanyaolu Sanwonolu, who is alleged to be
Tinubu’s preferred choice.







The council chairmen are the most influential grassroots mobilisers
under the direct primary system adopted by APC, to pick governorship
candidates.



In a video, all 57 local government chairman signed up to support Sanwonolu.







This comes a day after Ambode, alongside some members of his cabinet,
stormed the headquarters of the APC in Abuja to get Expression of
Interest and Nomination forms for his 2019 bid.



However, Sanwonolu and Obafemi Hamzat, two prominent members of the
APC in Lagos, also picked nomination forms for the governorship election
of 2019.



Sanwonolu, who served as a commissioner under Babatunde Fashola,
Ambode’s predecessor, is currently the managing director of Lagos State
Property Development Corporation (LSPDC).







At a meeting held after he picked up his nomination form, James
Odunmbaku, an ally of Tinubu known as “Baba Eto” in the political
circle, said “Sanwololu is the incoming governor of Lagos.”
