There is palpable tension in the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos state over Monday’s governorship primary of the party as the chance of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode in securing a second term ticket is said to be uncertain.
36 out of the 39 APC lawmakers in Lagos state House of Assembly endorsed the candidacy of Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Saturday even as there are speculations that the governor might face impeachment for his insistence to re-contest despite losing the goodwill of party stakeholders.
57 local council chairmen had earlier queued behind Sanwo-Olu. And to further brighten his chance, another APC governorship aspirant, Babafemi Hamza earlier on Saturday stepped down for him.
The Director General of Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu Campaign Organization (BOSCO), Mr. Tayo Ayinde in a statement welcomed the decision of Hamza to step down for Sanwo-Olu.
“As a group, we wish to profoundly acknowledge and commend Dr. Femi Hamzat for his show of sportsmanship to our common cause.”
How will Ambode come out of this conspiracy? Time will tell.
