The political season is fully upon us in Nigeria and all sorts of alignments and realignments are creeping up. If this report by the TheCable is anything to go by, incumbent governor of Lagos State might be considering some political realignment.
According to TheCable, ”there is a threat to impeach Ambode if he does not drop his second term bid.”
The report further stated that Over 50 council chairmen loyal to Bola Tinubu, his estranged godfather, have met and pledged their support to Jide Sanwonolu, who is believed to be Tinubu’s preferred choice.
The council chairmen are the most influential grassroots mobilisers under the direct primary system adopted by APC to pick governorship candidates.
“Meeting is over. Ambode is out. Jide Sanwonolu is the new governor of Lagos. All 57 local government chairman have signed his form. It’s over,” the source said.
TheCable could not independently verify this claim.
