Lagos Governorship Race: Tinubu Rejects Plea From Ambode’s Wife (See Details)
According to PUNCH, Mrs Ambode who went with her husband, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to the APC Mega rally in Osun state used the opportunity to meet with Tinubu.
However, reports have it that the APC National leader, Tinubu just courteously received the Lagos First Lady but refused to accept her plea to endorse her husband as the APC governorship aspirant for 2019.
A source claim: “At a point, she became emotional despite the fact that many party leaders were there. But Asiwaju (Tinubu) did not give her the answer she desired. He merely treated her with courtesy.”
This development is coming after the new aspirant approved by Tinubu in person of Jide Sanwo-Olu declared his intention to run as the Lagos state governor in the 2019 elections.
