AMBODE: The Final Verdict Tinubu Gave Us To Declare Today At The GAC Meeting - APC Chieftain Opens Up


Ambode and Tinubu
While tension is rising in the political firmament of the centre of excellence as Governor Akinwunmi Ambode battles to retain his seat, a group of All Progressives Congress, APC elders called the Governor’s Advisory Council, GAC dominated mainly by Tinubu’s trusted allies, will today at a scheduled meeting in Ikeja take a final position on who the party will present to the public for support in the 2019 polls.

News Proof reliably gathered that the fate of the incumbent, Ambode may have been sealed as the group is not likely to shift on its ground to withdraw its support for the embattled governor.

The body had met on Tuesday to consider pleas and various interventions from different groups and prominent individuals to consider Ambode for a second term. 

The meeting, however, ended without a definite answer to the embattled governor. One of the decisions taken at the Tuesday meeting was that the governor will not be allowed to sit in today’s meeting when the party elders will decide his fate. 

According to The Sun, a notable source who attended the meeting said that, “For us, we already know the direction things will go in today’s meeting because after the Tuesday’s parley, Asiwaju left us with a strongly coded rhetorical question, that is, ‘can you pack back into a bottle the beer you want to drink after spilling same on the floor?”

With this, today’s meeting may just be a mere ceremony to say a capital NO to the governor as the majority of those who will attend the event are already bitter against Ambode and have not hidden their opposition to his style of governance and bid for a second term.

Gov. Ambode is presently battling an internal wrangling within his party that has resulted in the emergence of two other APC stalwarts, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu and Mr Obafemi Hamzat, who have both signified their interest in slugging it out with him at the party’s primary for the APC governorship ticket in Lagos State. The emergence of the duo followed a rumoured frosty relationship between Ambode and APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who hitherto was regarded as his political godfather and mentor.
