Akinwunmi Ambode, the Lagos state governor, has stated that Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the preferred candidate of the Asiwaju Bola Tinubu camp, is not fit to rule the state.
He said this during a world press conference at the Lagos House, Alausa, Ikeja, on Sunday.
Giving reasons, Ambode claimed that Sanwo-Olu was sometime ago arrested for fraud in America and had also been in a rehabilitation center.
He also denied reports that he was planning to step down for Sanwo-Olu.
“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.
“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 too 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.”
