The APC Lagos East Senatorial District Leader who spoke at a meeting held at CMD Shangisha, said;

“People accused us of removing Governor Akinwunmi Ambode. We saw this crack four months ago and we decided to meet with our Lagos Central Senatorial Leader, Alhaji Tajudeen Olusi and we went to see Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

“We asked Tinubu if there was any problem, and he said that there was a problem and he narrated it.

“We prostrated and asked him to call the Ambode and speak with him.

“We left the place and started calling the Ambode to give him a hint of the meeting, but he did not pick our calls. Asiwaju Tinubu said that he was not picking his calls too. I actually tried my best.

“We rose up to defend Ambode. We didn’t just follow Asiwaju like sheep, we fought and we tried. Those of us in the East nearly burst into tears for the opportunity we lost in Lagos East.

“I fought tooth and nail to make sure that the position was not taken away from us. It was a great opportunity that we lost.

“Anyone that is not a party man should not be elected into positions. Take this advice and make sure you don’t make the same mistake.”

  1. I can’t really say much because I don’t know him too much but we are still in Nigeria that we don’t deserve to have headache because of politics in Nigeria

  2. Always pick your call no matter who and where the person is. You don’t know if that call can change your life for better. What a golden opportunity he lost

  3. U see why I hate politics bcuz they bent on fighting theirselves with no serious issue carrying rumour around. Well ambode sorry about that is not really ur lucky.

  4. That’s what the nation as a whole is suffering from today. We prefer voting party, instead of one that has the mandate and at the end, when they get to the office, they won’t be able to meet the demands of the people, rather they will be bidding the needs of some party godfather. Whichever way, politics is a game. One wins and another looses, so just take it good faith

  5. This is practical lies to cover up your deceit. What do you mean he wasn’t picking up calls, is that y u elected him out. You can tell this story to kids and they will believe u

  6. All these are cock and bull stories. He lost to godfatherism. If you know, you know. If you don’t know, you don’t know.

  7. the God father role of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu in Lagos state is quite phenomenal. it beats my imagination to see that the decision of who governs a state as large as Lagos state is in the hands of one man. its unfortunate.

  8. All i do hear about Ambode is that he is not a party man but he developed Lagos. Is APC his priority in Lagos or the development of entire Lagos?

  9. Well either he is a party man or not he has performed exceptional well in Lagos, in fact l rate him as the number 1 performing governor in Nigeria

  10. Please sir, wait, let me ask a question if I get you right sir. Do you mean only party members are entitled to all the available posts in Lagos? Is that what he did? If that is it, he has done nothing wrong. Democracy is what we call this regime Or crying out loud.

  11. This is Nigeria, the right person won’t win because he or she don’t have a godfather. Well just accept it, don’t give up make the almighty God your Godfather and see what will happen.
