There was tension in the Lagos chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, recently over fears that Akinwumi Ambode might withdraw his support for the party, and support another – having lost his chance to seek reelection to Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
However, all is now well, as the governor has officially endorsed his former rival. The endorsement, took place on Monday, during a stakeholders’ meeting in Lagos at the instance of the national leader of APC, Bola Tinubu, and members of the Governor’s Advisory Council (GAC).
Taking to Twitter on Monday, Ambode said the APC remains ‘one big family ’, noting that they go into the 2019 polls, united.
Our Party, the All Progressives Congress, remains one big family. We will head to the 2019 polls in unity, ready to win and deliver good governance.
