The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Ambode will face the likes of Jide Sanwo-Olu and Obafemi Hamzat in the primary election.
Sanwo-Olu reportedly picked up his form on Monday, just hours after the incumbent governor Ambode picked up his at the APC headquarters in Abuja.
According to sources, over 50 council chairmen loyal to APC National leader, Bola Tinubu, have met and already pledged their support for Sanwo-Olu, who is believed to be Tinubu’s preferred choice.
