The National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress has rescheduled governorship primaries in Lagos, Enugu and Adamawa states.
Governorship primary in Lagos will now hold on October the 2nd while Enugu and Adamawa state will hold on Thursday, October the 4th.
The change was announced in a press statement signed by the acting Publicity secretary of the party, Yekini Nabena
The statement also states that the mode of primaries for Enugu and Adamawa states have been changed from indirect to direct primaries.
Meanwhile, different views and massive condemnation have trailed the world press conference Governor Akinwunmi Ambode had yesterday as he condemned the candidacy of his rival, Jide Sanwo-Olu.According to the state governor during a world press conference at Lagos House on Sunday, Ambode has described his main contender as unfit.
Governor Akinwunmi Ambode said, “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 to 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”.
Divergent views have followed the governor’s outburst. Some are of the opinion that Ambode should have kept quiet and allowed people and the good work he has done in the state speak for him. Name calling and accusing his opponent of questionable character only gave the governor away as not being able to handle a tense situation.
Furthermore, some were of the opinion that is coming out to tell the world what he felt about the situation on ground could as well help him clear the air as regards different allegation hauled at him.       
Meanwhile, Sanwo-Olu denied claims that he had a problem with law enforcement in the United States, and that he underwent rehabilitation at a Lagos hospital.
He said his race for the Lagos Government House will continue to be based upon issues that matter to Lagosians and promised to make investments in education, health, sanitation, taxation, economic development, infrastructure, jobs, and public services if elected.
Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress too has broken his silence on the increasingly heated battle for the governorship ticket of the party in Lagos State.
In a statement on Sunday, hours after the governor held a press conference slamming his opponent as unfit, Tinubu confirmed his displeasure with the current government in the state.
“For reasons unknown to me and most Lagosians, we have experienced such deviations from enlightened governance recently,” Tinubu said.
“This trend is that which most concerns me as the primary nears. We must arrest this trend before irreparable harm is committed against the people and their future.”
He hinted about his delight at Sanwo-Olu’s emergence, albeit without mentioning his name. Sanwo-Olu is the only opponent to Governor Ambode.
