‘The governor of Lagos state, Akinwunmi Ambode has said that the frontrunner for the APC governorship ticket in Lagos state, Sanwo-olu is not a fit and proper person to take this position. Governor Ambode disclosed this while addressing a world press conference in Lagos this afternoon.
Ambode alleged that Sanwo-Olu was once arrested for spending fake dollars in the US and was detained for months. He also disclosed that Sanwo-Olu underwent rehabilitation at Gbagada General Hospital in Lagos.
He made these allegations while making an earnest plea to the leadership of the party in Lagos to “do the right thing”, Ambode said Sanwo-Olu is being pushed to take up a job he is not capable of doing.
In his words, “we have never responded to the campaign of calumny on social media. We have one family in APC. The aspirant being put up to compete against us is not a fit and proper person to take this job.
I have done everything in the last three and a half years to serve people selflessly and to serve the poor. This particular aspirant is somebody that has been arrested for spending fake dollars in a nightclub in America, and he has been detained for months.
He doesn’t have the competence to do what he is being propelled to do. This is somebody that has gone for rehabilitation before. The records are there at the Gbagada General Hospital. We don’t want to go too far. Our leadership should have a rethink.
I plead with our leaders to have a rethink, It is not about me, it is about the opportunity that APC has.”
