‘He’s not a fit and proper person to take this job’ – Ambode runs down Sanwo-Olu


The Lagos state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode has alleged that his contender in securing the All Progressive’s Congress’ governorship ticket, Babajide Sanwo-Olu does not have good reputation to fly the Party’s ticket.

He said Sanwo-Olu has once been arrested and detained in the United States for months, for spending fake dollars at a night club.

The governor made this allegation while addressing a press conference at the government house, Alausa, Ikeja.

“We have never responded to the campaign of calumny on social media. We have one family in APC. The aspirant being put up to compete against us is not a fit and proper person to take this job,” he said.

“I have done everything in the last three and half years to serve people selflessly and to serve the poor.

“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.”

“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. we don’t want to go to far. Our leadership should have a rethink.

“I plead with our leaders to have a rethink, It is not about me, it is about the opportunity that APC has”, Ambode ended with appeal for support.

The governorship primary between Ambode and Sanwo-Olu had been rescheduled to hold tomorrow October 1.

Meanwhile, Sanwo-Olu is believed to have the backing of the two-time governor of Lagos, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as thirty-six out of forty Lagos lawmakers endorsed him yesterday.
