Trouble? APC National Leader Allegedly Against Ambode's 2nd Term

A day after Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State officially declared his bid for a second term, there is a threat to impeach the governor, TheCable claims.

The impeachment threat is not unconnected to an ongoing rift between Ambode and APC national leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

Ambode had on Monday obtained his expression of interest and nomination forms at the APC National Secretariat in Abuja.

Quoting credible sources, TheCable claimed 57 council chairmen, who are fiercely loyal to Tinubu, have met and pledged their support to his preferred candidate, Jide Sanwo-Olu. Ambode now faces the task of beating Sanwo-Olu and another APC stalwart, Obafemi Hamzat, in the primary.
