The battle for Lagos may just be underway as the incumbent governor, Akinwunmi Ambode slugs it out in a battle of his life with anointed son of the godfather, Jide Sanwo-Olu.
The tension between Ambode and his estranged godfather, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu took an interesting dimension on Sunday when Ambode addressed a press conference and openly threw jabs at Tinubu’s candidate, Sanwo-Olu.
Ambode has remained stubborn, defiant and resolute, even as the powers that control the party in Lagos and their cronies have withdrawn their support from him. As the incumbent, he still has a lot of resources in his disposal to fight the battle and we now wait with bated breathe for the outcome of this primary election that promises to be thrilling.
Today’s Echo will post regular updates on the status of the Lagos APC primary election. Stay here.
