The ongoing stand-off between former Governor and de facto godfather of Lagos politics, Bola Tinubu and his protege and current governor, Akinwunmi Ambode has entered a new stage as Ambode launched a counterattack today.
Akinwunmi Ambode has addressed a world press conference this afternoon ahead of the APC Governorship primaries and he has begun to fire salvos at his opponents, including the annointed one; Jide Sanwo Olu, who has the backing of Tinubu.
Ambode claims Jide Sanwo Olu was once arrested for spending fake American dollars in a night club.
He also claims there is a medical record at Gbagada General Hospital that shows the man is not mentally healthy. He also said Sanwo-Olu has gone for rehabilitation twice.
Although Ambode has avoided mentioning Tinubu, analysts believe this attack is directed at him.
The next few days will be interesting.
