36 Lagos lawmakers dump Ambode, declare support for Sanwo-olu


Not less than 36 members of the Lagos State House of Assembly have endorsed Babajide Sanwo-olu as the candidate they would support in the coming governorship primaries of the state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Media reports have over the weeks indicated that the national leader of the All Progressives Congress would not give his backing to the sitting Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode.

According to a statement by the Chairman of the House Committee on Information, Strategy and Security, Honourable (Princess) Adefunmilayo Tejuoso, the decision was taken at a Parliamentary meeting of the lawmakers which took place at Lateef Jakande auditorium of the House on Saturday, 29 September, 2019, a day before the governorship primaries of the party.

The meeting was presided over by the Speaker of the House, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa. Out of the 40 members of the House, 36 were present at the meeting and all of them endorsed the decision and duly signed the statement announcing the decision.

The lawmakers stated that they were in agreement with the leadership of the party and the Governor’s Advisory Council (GAC) which had earlier endorsed Sanwo-olu for the governorship ticket.
