A national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Tinubu has finally disclosed that he refused to support the current governor of Lagos state, Akinwunmi Ambode, for a second term because he deviated from the master plan created for the development of the state.

Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos State, also accused Ambode, whom he supported in 2015, of alienating those who ”contributed so much to our development”.

“Whenever a government departed from this plan without [a] compelling reason, the state and its people have borne the painful consequence of the improper departure,” Tinubu said.

He, however, agreed that the said master plan may not have been perfect.

The ex-governor also formally endorsed the candidacy of Jide Sanwo-Olu, who served under him when he was the governor of the state, after months of speculation.

Bear in mind that Ambode had earlier on Sunday said Sanwo-Olu was not fit to lead Lagos owing to his criminal past and his mental health.

“This particular aspirant is somebody that has been arrested for spending fake dollars in a nightclub in America, and he has been detained for months,” Ambode said.

“He doesn’t have the competence to do what he is being propelled to do. This is somebody that has gone for rehabilitation before. The records are there at the Gbagada General Hospital.”

However, Tinubu described Sanwo-Olu as being ”endowed with superlative vision and commitment.”

Sanwo-Olu also has the backing of all but four members of the state’s assembly and all the chairmen of local councils in the state.

“While possessing a wealth of experience and exposure, he is a young man endowed with superlative vision and commitment,” he said in a statement on Sunday.

“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.”
