Lagos APC Primary: Ambode Spoils to Contest, Says Sanwoolu is a Misfit

Embattled governor of Lagos State, Akinwumi Ambode, has vowed to press on with his intention to participate in Monday’s primary election of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

The resolve followed a long drawn pressure on him to withdraw for one of the aspirants in the race for the Lagos State Government House, Jide Sanwoolu who is said to be the preferred candidate of the APC leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu

Ambode who spoke to  newsmen at a world press conference in Lagos, Sunday said he was prepared to slug it out with Sanwoolu in the party primary that was  rescheduled for tomorrow.

The primary election which ought to have held Sunday was shifted for tomorrow to give another 24 hours grace to prevail on the incumbent governor to withdraw from the race so that Sanwoolu could emerge a sole candidate.

The third contender for the Lagos governorship race, Babafemi Hamzat, had stepped down Saturday to pitch tent with Sanwoolu who seems to have the majority backing for the numero uno seat within the party hierarchy

But Ambode insisted he would go on to challenge Sanwoolu, who, according to him, is a misfit for the seat of governor in Lagos State and therefore called on Nigerians and Federal Government to take more than a passing interest in Lagos

At the conference, Ambode described Sanwoolu as being mentally unfit to be Lagos governor, claiming that his candidacy would pose serious risk for the candidacy of President Mohammadu Buhari and the APC in coming elections.

While seeking support from the party to choose him for a second term in tomorrow’s primary, Ambode further hinted that Sanwoolu has a baggage of criminal record abroad that is capable of tarnishimg the anti-corruption record of the present administration
