A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chinedu Eya, has declared that Lagos residents were prepared to re-elect Governor Akinwunmi Ambode if the latter could simply dump the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The governor is currently deserted as critical stakeholders in the state have pitch tents with his rival, Babajide Sanwo-Olu. Eya declared that Ambode would win in 2019 if he decides to fly the ticket of any other political party.
In a statement personally signed by the PDP chieftain, who earlier promised to sell his Lagos house to help the governor purchase a PDP ticket, charged Ambode to disregard the recent endorsement of his opponent, Sanwo Olu by 36 lawmakers of state’s House of Assembly as well as the pressure on him to stand down from 2019 elections. He described the move against Ambode as a ‘mockery of God’s supremacy’.
