A rally to herald the campaign of Babajide Sanwo-Olu, a governorship aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State has been called off.
A chieftain of the party told media sources that they received an order ‘from our Leader’ that the rally scheduled to hold at the Blue Roof in the premises of Lagos Television (LTV) should be cancelled.
He said the decision may be the fallout of the meeting between President Muhammadu Buhari and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu on the political crisis in Lagos State.
Crisis broke out in Lagos State APC with the alleged rift between national leader and godfather, Bola Tinubu and his protege and current governor, Akinwunmi Ambode. The crisis was further revealed when Jide Sanwo-Olu emerged as another governorship aspirant of the APC with Tinubu’s support putting Ambode’s reelection in jeopardy.
It has been reported that president Buhari, Governor Ajimobi of Oyo state, and Oba Rilwan Akiolu of Lagos are currently wading into the matter to resolve the dispute.
