Pressure mounts on Ambode to step down for Sanwo-Olu

The second term bid of Lagos State governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, is seriously under threat as pressure mounts on him from the leadership of the party in the state to step down for his favoured opponent, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Sanwo-Olu came into reckoning in Lagos politics after he obtained the state governorship form last Tuesday and immediately got the backing of the Mandate Movement in the Lagos APC.

The Mandate Movement is led by the National Leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, who was Ambode’s political godfather.

The chairmen of the 57 councils had also declared support for Sanwo-Olu.

Sanwo-Olu, a former commissioner in the state, on Sunday formally declared his intention to vie for the Lagos State governorship ticket of the APC, promising to restore the glory of the state when he was voted in as the governor.
