This is coming on the heels of Ambode’s explosive press conference where he alleged that Babajide Sanwo-Olu was arrested in the US for spending fake dollars.
President Buhari has summoned the Lagos state Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode and the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu to Abuja.
According to Daily Post, a source said that Buhari met with them on Monday, October 1, 2018.
This is coming on the heels of Ambode’s explosive press conference where he alleged that Babajide Sanwo-Olu, his closest contender in the Lagos governorship primaries, was arrested in the US for spending fake dollars.
The source also said that Buhari is worried about the effect that the rift between the two top Lagosians will have on the party.
Tinubu endorses Sanwo-Olu
Tinubu, on Sunday, September 30, 2018, issued a statement endorsing Sanwo-Olu.
The APC leader described the governorship aspirant as a young man endowed with superlative vision and commitment and who also possesses a wealth of experience and exposure.
His words: “While possessing a wealth of experience and exposure, he is a young man endowed with superlative vision and commitment. Most importantly, he understands the importance of the blueprint for development.
“He esteems it as a reliable and well-conceived vehicle for the future development of the state. He also knows the value of reaching out and working with others in order to maximize development and provide people the best leadership possible.”
Also, Daily Post reports that the APC national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole and some party chieftains are making last minute moves to resolve the problem between Ambode and Tinubu.
