Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has said there is no issue between Akinwunmi Ambode, Governor of Lagos State and himself.
He stated this in a response to a question on the subject on Twitter, insisting that he and Ambode were on the same page.
Ambode and Bola Ahmed Tinubu, National Leader of the APC, endured a cold relationshop over the latter’s refusal to support the incumbent governor of the state for a second term in office.
The issue came to a head on September 30, 2018, when Ambode declared that Sanwo-Olu, Tinubu’s ‘favoured candidate’, had once been “arrested for spending fake dollars” and was “unfit” to govern Lagos.
However, Sanwo-Olu had said he forgave the governor for the statement. The duo have, afterwards, been seen at events together.
Sanwo-Olu and his running mate, Femi Hamzat, had held a meeting Lagosians on Monday where he answered questions on his plans for Lagos State if he wins the 2019 governorship election.
In what seemed to be a continuation on the question-and-answer session on Tuesday, Sanwo-Olu tweeted: “On the ‘Ambode Issue’…let me state it here that there is no Ambode issue. He is my governor. We are one party and our goals are the same. A better and greater Lagos is our challenge”.
