LAGOS NIGERIA. Governor Mr Akinwunmi Ambode reportedly broke down in tears and has been in low spirits since the day he picked up his APC governorship re-election nomination form.
Babajide Sanwo-Olu has emerged the handpicked candidate of APC kingmakers in Lagos, and he’s been anointed the preferred candidate to unseat Ambode during a primary election exercise slated for September 29, 2018.
Ambode was very sure of a second term in office before a dizzying spate of events in September made him sink into his office chair in agony, on occasion.
Jide Sanwoolu declaration:
The fact that they are making him go through the primaries with other aspirants in a state like Lagos, shows you that they want to humiliate him – said political pundit Prince Abeng.
One top ranking official in the Lagos State government disclosed that Ambode’s mood swings are now more frequent than there have ever been and that the governor isn’t holding back the tears.
“We saw him shedding tears the other day. He even drove himself out of government house, something he’s never done”, the source disclosed.
Another aide in Alausa, the seat of government in Lagos, described Ambode’s mood these days as “crestfallen, somber and a tad dejected”.
