What Ahmed Bola Tinubu & Lagos State APC Governship Aspirants Discussed Behind Closed Doors , The meeting between the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Bola Tinubu, chairman of the Lagos State chapter, Chief Henry Ajomale and governorship aspirants in the state, on Sunday, did not resolve all the differences tugging at the heart of the party, An aspirant in attendance, however, confirmed that Tinubu dissociated himself from the alleged endorsement of any candidate for the party’s governorship ticket.
There had been reports that he was supporting a former Accountant-General of the state, Mr Akinwumi Ambode. The meeting, held at Tinubu’s Bourdillion residence, as exclusively reported by our sister publication, was said to have commenced with the leader’s admonition to the aggrieved aspirants not to dump the party for opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as being reportedly planned by them, should anyone emerge as candidate without primaries.
“Oga started by saying he trust us not to defect. That he heard about the planned defection, but knows his own people would never join a party like PDP. We knew he was just psyching us up,” the aspirant revealed.
He further disclosed that “he also told all of us that he was not supporting anybody and he was particular about the Ambode saga. He said anybody saying he is supporting him is just a name dropper. We hope he is being sincere.”In the aspirants’ bid to check on the sincerity of Tinubu’s assurance, youths loyal to them were, on Tuesday, surreptitiously sent to APC youth summit, The move was reportedly to check if the summit was still a ploy to garner support for Ambode indirectly, in order to dictate their next line of action.
