It cannot be the best of times for Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode. No sooner did he declare his intention to run for a second term than rumors of another anointed candidate become widespread.
APC chieftain and former Lagos governor Asiwaju Bola Tinubu was said to have chosen a dark horse, Jide Sanwo Olu to contest with the incumbent Ambode at the party primaries.
Fuji legend K1– who has been known previously as an Ambode support- seems to have also turned on him as he was seen in a video at an event mocking the current governor.
“Everything good in Lagos was done by Tinubu Fashola”, he’s seen saying. “This other madman just does his mouth like this….” gesticulating with his mouth.
The political season in Nigeria is always fraught with intrigue and high-level drama. It appears that 2019 will be the same too.
