“From what I know, he may likely contest against Sanwo-Olu at the governorship primary.”
Mr Akinwunmi Ambode, the former governor of Lagos State, may join the governorship race in 2023 on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
This is predicated on rumors that the former governor may pick up the Expression of Interest and Nomination Forms on Friday.
Ambode served as governor of Lagos for an one term. In the run-up to the 2019 elections, he lost the APC ticket to Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the current governor of the state.
However, a close ally of Ambode told Vanguard that the former governor has finalized arrangements to choose the APC’s Expression of Interest and Nomination Forms this week.
The source, who spoke in confidence, said: “I am talking to you as a friend that he (Ambode) may likely come out this week on the platform of the APC.
“From what I know, he may likely contest against Sanwo-Olu at the governorship primary.
“Before the close of the sale of forms, oga (Ambode) will pick the Nomination and Expression of Interest Form. There is a likelihood that he will buy the forms on Friday.”
