JUST IN: Ambode To Address After Suffering Defeat In Guber Primary
Nigeria Political News 3rd October, 2018: Akinwunmi Ambode, governor of Lagos state, is about to speak publicly and address the press for the first time since the result of the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary election was released.
The governor lost the 2019 ticket of the ruling party in the state to Babajide Sanwo-Olu, a former commissioner.
Sanwo-Olu was backed by influential party leaders in the state, including Bola Tinubu, a former governor of the state.
His address comes after the announcement of Babajide Sanwo-Olu, his main rival for the Lagos State governorship ticket, as the winner of the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary election held in Lagos on Tuesday.
The election was coated in intrigues as while the National Working Committee of the APC had earlier insisted that no elections held, the state chapter of the party took a contrary position and declared Sanwo-Olu the party’s flag-bearer for the 2019 Lagos governorship election.
Ambode, who fell out of favour with the party’s National Leader, Bola Tinubu, had also addressed a world press conference on Sunday, during which he accused Sanwo-Olu of being mentally unfit to occupy the governorship position.
