Ambode: Yoruba Forum declares support for Lagos governor, warns APC

Ambode: Yoruba Forum declares support for Lagos governor, warns APC

The Yoruba Ronu Leadership Forum says it stands with Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State on his second term ambition.

Ambode is going into Saturday’s primary and will be up against a strong contender, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

The former commisioner has the backing of Mandate Movement, a group loyal to APC national leader, Bola Tinubu.

He had also been endorsed by the 57 chairmen of local government and council development areas, top party chieftains, PSP operators, and most recently all 337 ward chairmen in the state.

But the Forum in a statement by its Secretary General, Akin Malaolu, on Monday, warned the All Progressives Congress (APC) over what it called the gang-up against Ambode being organised by some political leaders.

It said: “We are alarmed by the gang-up being organised by some political leaders over the second term ambition of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.

“It is important to educate the political leaders that the victory of APC and Ambode at the polls in 2015 elections was due to many factors.

“One of which was the role played by Yoruba Ronu leadership Forum that worked underground to ensure his victory due to the altercations between the Oba of Lagos and the Igbo community in Lagos over the lagoon saga that turned political and we are prepared to work for him regardless of his minor shortcomings.

“We are, therefore, warning that the threats to deny Ambode his deserved second term and fair performance so far, may snowball into massive protest votes if care is not taken.

“We are putting leaders of APC, including its so-called Mandate and Justice groups on notice, that the general people and voters in Lagos and the South-West are not in companionship with your lots over attempts at denying Gov.Akinwunmi Ambode his second term in office.

“And we beseech all to sheath their swords for better political negotiations to reduce the political tension that has enveloped the people of Lagos State and the South-West in general.

”We have no intention of addressing anyone on this subject again as our position is final and can’t be changed to another alternative. A stitch in time saves nine,” Malaolu said.
