There seems to be a conflict in the acceptance of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s second term bid.

The chairman of the Ambode Campaign Organisation (AMCO), Olawale Oluwo has vowed that the group will facilitate the moves to scrap tax consultancy firm, Alpha Beta. Oluwa made this known in an interview with ThisDay newspaper published on Tuesday, May 3.

It will be recalled that in December 2018 under the administration of the then Lagos state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, Oluwo resigned his position as the commissioner for energy and mineral resources in Lagos state.

He said: “I don’t like it when people play god with the transient power that ordinarily belongs to God and the people.”

Oluwo stated that he tendered two letters of when he vacated his position as a commissioner one which carried details of his resignation from his position and the other which contained his resignation from the ruling party APC.

GAC is unknown to APC’s constitution – Oluwo

When asked about the role of the Governors’ Advisory Council (GAC) in the selection of the party’s candidate, Oluwa stated that GAC has no constitutional right to nominate a candidate.

He added that the existence of GAC as the apex body assigned to anoint a candidate of the state is alien to the party’s constitution.

Oluwo also stated that any candidate who emerged from the selection of GAC is not the party’s candidate.

He said: “I want Lagosians to know that the incumbent Governor that has been endorsed by the GAC is the candidate of the GAC and not the candidate of the party.

“The AMCO Group will announce its own candidate and the candidate of the two groups will contest the governorship primary election in Lagos State.”

In another development, the Lagos state APC has warned ex-governor, Akinwunmi Ambode not to defect to the opposition party, PDP.

According to that party’s spokesperson in Lagos, Seye Oladejo, he said the PDP had already promised another person its governorship ticket ahead of the 2023 elections.

He added that joining PDP will only amounts to automatic failure at the gubernatorial polls.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Ambode urged Nigerian youths to get their Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) ready ahead of the 2023 general elections.

In a Twitter post on Tuesday, February 1, Ambode noted that power is actually in the hands of the youths and that their time is now.

The former Lagos governor expressed gratitude to Lagosians who acknowledged what he called modest contributions to the state. He also noted that things can only get better for the state and Nigeria generally.
