Speaking at a press conference on Sunday, Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode has revealed that his challenger and anointed governorship candidate of most of APC chieftaincies is not fit to run lagos.
He said this while addressing newsmen, even though he did not directly mention Sawon-olu’s name, he said This particular aspirant — you can go and check, the records are there — is somebody that has been arrested for spending fake American dollars in a nightclub,” he said at a press conference in Lagos on Sunday.
“He is also known that he doesn’t have the competence to do what he is being propelled to do. His records are there at Gbagada General Hospital. This is somebody that has gone for rehabilitation before.
“We don’t want to go too far; we don’t want to talk about all the things that we know, but we know that our leadership should have a rethink.
“I will not stand here on the mandate of Lagosians and then allow our great party APC to fritter away an opportunity by putting in somebody that the opposition will easily take out because of lack of credibility.”
Ambode also begged APC leaders to rethink their decision, saying “This is not about me. It is about greater opportunities for the APC to take the progress of Nigeria to a greater place.”
