APC Moves Swiftly, EXPOSES Shocking Truth To Ambode As His Suspected Defection To PDP LOOMS; READ Message

Seye Oladejo, the APC’ s spokesman in Lagos state, has urged former Governor Ambode not to join the PDP.

Oladejo stated that the PDP had already committed to another candidate for the 2023 governorship election.

According to the APC scribe, whoever wins the PDP’ s governorship ticket in Lagos is certain to fail.

As previously stated, a Lagos PDP chieftain, Ganiu Taofik, stated that the PDP’ s gate was widely opened for the one- term former Lagos governor.

Additionally, recall that he was defeated in his bid for reelection at the end of his first term due to an alleged schism between Ambode and Tinubu.

Don’ t Be Deceived- APC Warns Ambode Amidst PDP Defection Rumours

In Lagos state, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has advised Akinwunmi Ambode, the state’ s immediate past governor, against joining the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

According to THE PUNCH, Seye Oladejo, the APC’ s publicity secretary in Lagos state, stated this on Wednesday, February 2, in response to the PDP’ s claim that the former governor was free to join the opposition party.

Oladejo stated that the PDP has made it abundantly clear that Olajide Adediran, aka Jandor, will be the party’ s governorship candidate in the upcoming election.

As a result, he stated that Ambode should not be duped by the opposition party’ s dubious methods.

According to reports, he stated the following:

” I think the PDP is idle and the PDP is just promising people. How many governorship tickets do they want to give out? Haven’ t they promised Jandor the ticket? So they are now reaching out to Ambode?

” One would expect that Mr Akinwunmi Ambode would know better than to dance to the tune of deceit in the PDP. What is the PDP’ s record in governorship elections in Lagos State? Anyone who gets a PDP ticket is certain of failure. ”

PDP Chieftain Lures Ambode, Declaring His Chances Are Better With PDP

Recall that a Peoples Democratic Party chieftain in Lagos state, Ganiu Taofik, previously stated that the PDP’ s door is wide open to former Governor Akinwunmi Ambode and any politician willing to follow the party’ s rules.

Taofik, who disclosed this in an exclusive interview with The Punch on Tuesday, February 1, also stated that if Ambode joins the PDP, he may have a chance to run for governor of Lagos in 2023.

Former PDP spokesman in Lagos expressed confidence in the PDP’ s ability to unseat the All Progressives Congress in the next governorship election in Lagos.

According to Taofik,

” Anybody can join the party and we are ready to allow as many as possible to try their popularity using our platform. ”

When asked whether Ambode and others are permitted to join the PDP, the PDP chieftain responded, ” Of course. ”

Additionally, he said:

” He should have (some chances) had he been the state’ s governor. He sure would have people who love him and of course, people whom he may have stepped on their toes as well. ”

The former Lagos PDP spokesman stated that the party would monitor APC’ s errors throughout the country and capitalise on them in order to become Nigerians’ darling in 2023.

Ambode Addresses Tinubu’ s ‘ Rift’

Meanwhile, the alleged ill will within the Lagos APC dates all the way back to 2018, when Tinubu campaigned against Akinwunmi Ambode’ s reelection.

According to PREMIUM TIMES, Ambode stated in 2018 that reports of a rift between him and All Progressives Congress (APC) national leader Bola Tinubu were untrue.

Mr Ambode clarified the matter in a statement released in Lagos by his chief press secretary, Habib Aruna.

Both social and traditional media have been awash with reports of a major schism between Tinubu and Ambode over an alleged disagreement over the governor’ s second term bid.

Mr Aruna quoted Mr Ambode as telling party faithful in Epe during the election of delegates to the party’ s presidential primary election and national convention that reports of a fight between him and Mr Tinubu were out of context and ” there was no fight anywhere. ”

Buhari Wades Into Tinubu, Ambode’ s Rift

Additionally, VANGUARD reported in September 2018 that President Muhammadu Buhari had invited the APC’ s Bola Tinubu to Abuja due to his dissatisfaction with the Lagos leadership crisis.

According to reports, the APC Governors’ Forum urged Buhari to write to Tinubu pleading with him not to embarrass one of their own.

The Guardian reported that during the closed- door meeting, both men; the Oba of Lagos, Rilwanu Akiolu; the national vice chairman of the APC, South West, Chief Pius Akinyelure; and others expressed concern about the conflict and its potential impact on the party’ s chances of winning the forthcoming governorship election.

Mr Tunde Rahman, the national leader’ s media aide, stated that he was unaware his principal had been summoned to Abuja.

” You can’ t trample on people’ s right; you can’ t stop anybody from expressing intention to contest as stipulated in the constitution.

” It is left for the party members to decide their candidate through direct primary.

” All the three governorship aspirants are going to participate in the primary. If three people have taken forms, it means the party will decide whom it wants. APC is a disciplined party, ” he said.

Tinubu Explains Why He Didn’ t Back Ambode For A Second Term

Recently, REUBEN ABATI reported that Tinubu blamed his failure to support Akinwumi Ambode for a second term as governor of Lagos State on his lack of leadership abilities.

Ambode, who served as Lagos State’ s immediate past governor for four years, was denied a second term by his party leaders in the state, eliciting a mixed reaction from various quarters in the state.

Tinubu stated that Ambode’ s administration was leading Lagos in the wrong direction and could not be allowed to continue in that direction.

Tinubu, who spoke at the commissioning of the Agege Pen Cinema Flyover and five arterial road networks in March, said Ambode’ s drift from the leadership and vision of Lagos State became apparent between 2017 and 2018; he added that the drift was noticed by the state’ s political leaders, which resulted in the decision to sack Ambode and replace him with Sanwo- Olu and his deputy, Obafemi Hamzat.

” Though, at that time, we weren’ t sure what the performance of the duo would be but they have so far proven their worth in spite of the prevailing challenges, ” Tinubu said.

Tinubu had previously described Sanwo- Olu as a brilliant captain who had stabilised and refocused Lagos despite economic turmoil caused by COVID- 19 and the coordinated destruction of state assets.
