Ambode and Otedola must not contest in 2019 under different parties. Otherwise, Sanwo Olu will not survive.

No political analyst can tell me APC can match their combo force. It is simply impossible.

In 2019 election of Ambode, Sanwo Olu and Otedola, victory is certain for everybody but SANWO OLU.

Just read between the lines.
Though it will be tough for Ambode to contest under different party , as he might not be able to stand the consequence (impeachment).

Drama!

Sincerely Ambode has not tried to justify 2nd term but if his coming back will end "baba sope" politics in lagos, he has my support.

Hopefully, secrets will be revealed and we would see that those who say they are true democrats are actually wolves in sheep clothing

It's very good the man is putting up a small fight.

So they knew what happened in osun state?

Even if ambode eventually wins or not, tinubu wing is gonna be crippled. Some truth about him will soon start popping out.

To my fellow defenders of Buhari cos of tinubu, can we see the handwriting on the wall?

The way Buhari saw and treated him after the 2015 election is the same way he is still treating him except that tinubu has been trying to lick the ground Buhari stepped on to try and curry favour from him but Buhari and his cabal don't just like this man.

Can u guys stop and ponder what will happen if Buhari wins 2019?

The north will continue to play and use u guys.

You don't need this essay.

His work ( despite some of his failures) speak for itself.

Apc needs some credibility to retain power in Lagos. Its not good strategy, bringing a new face (Sanwo Olu), at a time people are struggling to believe APC in federal government for a second term.

when you shut down the mouth of enemy and they end up singing your praises, you can't just but move forward with the policies


if tinubu lost this battle of primary election and ambode won, that would be the end of tinubu relevance in Lagos. so this is going to be a threat game btw tinubu and ambode cabals. if you feel ambode is the one coming out this confident, you lied. some power forces are behind his bravery

You are very crazy. You are very crazy. In short, you are an idiot of no mean proportion!

I don't normally do this but you and your nauseating psycophancy have provoked me. Do you know how this man is causing the average road user in Lagos serious suffering? Have you seen the mountains of refuse dotting the once tidy streets? What of the crater sized potholes everywhere?! Roadside trading that has taken over most of the roads and sidewalks since Fashola left?

Oloribu. You are mad!!
