Ambode denies rumors of stepping down for Jide Sanwo-olu
Akinwunmi Ambode has denied rumors of stepping down in the governorship race to Jide Sanwo-olu. He said it is the Handwork of Desperate Polticians trying to bring dis-unity to the party.
Below is the released statement:
2019 Primaries: Disregard Fake News
There is no iota of truth in the said statement and it did not emanate from the Governor or his office. We are not oblivious of the desperation from certain quarters that is hell bent on fanning the embers of discord within the Lagos APC.
The giant developmental strides and infrastructural development embarked upon by Governor Ambode in almost three and half years will be completed by him within the constitutionally stipulated time. This is why he has sought the support of party leadership and every Lagosian for re-election in order to complete the good works he has started. He is very much committed to that bid.
