SHOCKING: Ambode's Commissioners Openly Shift Support, Loyalty To Sanwo-Olu, Boast They Can't  be Sacked


Some notable commissioners still in the cabinet of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode have reportedly shifted their loyalty and support to the new entrants, Mr. Jide Sanwo-Olu, yet boasting they are untouchable

Sanwo-Olu is believed to have clinched the anointing of the Lagos State political Lord, who also doubles as the national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Political watchers are of the opinion that that chances that Governor Akinwumi Ambode, will get his second term ticket dimmed further on Friday following reports that the leadership of the ruling party in the state, the All Progressives Congress (APC), has resolved to see to his defeat in the direct primary, which will be held on September 25.

It was reliably gathered on Friday evening that all efforts by the presidency to wade into the feud between the national leader of the party, Senator Bola Tinubu and Governor Ambode were not successful.

Interestingly, Sanwo-Olu still reports to Ambode, the appointing authority who got him his current job as the Managing Director, Lagos State Development Property Corporation (LSDPC).

He is yet to give a hint of resignation from his current job.

The governor’s camp also confirmed according to Nigerian Tribune that a couple of commissioners in his cabinet have shifted allegiance to Sanwo-Olu and like the wave-making aspirant, they have refused to quit the governor’s cabinet.

“How can people be so heartless, without conscience? How do they (defecting commissioners) get to look him (Governor Ambode) in the face despite the fact that they know he knows where they stand now? Our people are funny. It is because of Asiwaju they are behaving so arrogantly.

“How can you be fighting a man and be eating his food? If you no longer believe in his leadership, quitting is the most honourable thing to do. It happened in Osun. [Moshood] Adeoti [Action Democratic Party (ADP) governorship candidate] left Aregbesola’s cabinet to face his governorship project.

Here (Lagos cabinet), they are saying the governor cannot touch them because their removal will exacerbate his crisis. Can you imagine the so-called progressives we say we are?” the source fighting on the side of the governor disclosed.

Three governors who reportedly referred to Ambode as “pompous for nothing” when their intervention was sought are said to have agreed to get involved mainly for the sake of his emissaries, particularly a prominent one (name withheld).

They are also said to be adversaries of Tinubu and reportedly persuaded to support the governor against his estranged godfather as a way of further clipping the wings of the party’s national leader as 2023 politics evolve.

Tinubu is believed to be interested in running for president after Muhammadu Buhari.
