Ambode Finally Gets Tinubu’s Consent As Tinubu Reactivates Campaign Organization Again
For Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State, the storm over his bid to get the second term ticket of the All Progressives Congress(APC) is finally over as the National Leader of the party, Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu has endorsed him. According to Make It Global, the coast was cleared for Ambode in the early hours of today, Friday.
Former interim National Chairman of APC, Chief Bisi Akande and the Oba of Lagos were said to have played “important roles” in the reconciliation. The immediate fall out of the endorsement was the reactivation of a campaign committee, which Tinubu had set up for Ambode about six months ago.
The committee has as its Director General, Mr Akeem Sulaimon, the Special Adviser, Community and Communication to the Lagos State Governor. Another member of the team said to include top politicians is Mr. Kehinde Bamigbetan, the Lagos State Commissioner for Information and Strategy.
Make It Global claims it out a call to Mr. Suleiman, who confirmed that he is indeed the head of Ambode’s campaign team, and that the office of the campaign team was located in Ikeja.
The APC governorship primaries, will hold nationwide on Sunday September 30.
