Tinubu Dumps Ambode For Lagos Governor, Supports Ex- Commissioner

About 50 council chairmen in Lagos loyal to APC National Leader Ahmed Bola Tinubu, have met and pledged their support for Jide Sanyaolu Sanwonolu, who is alleged to be Tinubu’s preferred choice to be elected as governor of the state.

Akinwunmi Ambode’s quest to be re-elected as Lagos State Governor for a second term may have suffered set back as his political godfather was reported to have dumped him.

Solacebase gathered that council chairmen are strong grassroots mobilisers who can make or mar  under the direct primary system that is adopted by APC, to select governorship candidates.

Also Jide Sanwonolu, a former Lagos  Commissioner and Obafemi Hamzat, two prominent members of the APC have obtained the nomination forms for the governorship election of 2019
