You can’t defeat Jagaban in Lagos. Ipobs will only push Ambode into fire. Same way they pushed Jonathief ,Fayose,Eleka and the dancing Ajobiewe clown from EDE.

How pitiable to hear how some of us contrue issues.
Tinibu is after his personal interest and not Lagos sate and you are hear in support of him?
Are we living with humans or mad people?
If it was the case of a poor performance, it's intelligible but it's not, but greed.
If at the end of the day Ambode is out of the race and a cluless fellow is Governor at the expense of Ambode
whom the masses perceive as the best candidate, then where is democracy in Nigeria?
How can few unperspicacious, greedy and selfish people sit down in a room and sellect who we will vote
for and yet we drum in support of them?
Nigeria? Which way?



I can vividly see that you know nothing concerning lagos or its politics. So Sanwo-Olu or Hamzat is clueless? Go do ur assignment on them and see for urself that they are more experience that your said ambode. Ambode was only a civil servant before he was anointed for Governor. Put it also in mind that he had the same shortcomings when he served under Fashola as Accountant General before the same Tinubu waded into the matter. So if Tinubu was greedy as you proclaimed, you still think Lagos will be what it is now right?
You need to rethink and dnt eva write on what you know nothing about.
Also, go do some findings the main reason why party members/lagos grassroots members/lagos foot soldiers do not want ambode to run for 2nd term. Plus, you should wonder why strong personalities of the said party (APC) have not taken sides with the said amiable governor of yours(ambode).

Madam, they're not "visitors," they're Nigerians and they're in their country. You don't have more rights than them in Lagos. If you violate their right, they can get you arrested and locked up in this same Lagos and vice versa.

You lots are so ethnically bigoted and blinded with hate. That's why insist APC is not a true national party. It is a marriage of convenience of 2 regional parties (ACN - SW and CPC - North). See how the party has magnified Nigeria's common faultlines when Tinubu and Buhari managed to manoevre it to the center. And anyone is still wondering why the president is an ethnic jingoist?

In the future, with the right constitutional amendments, parties like the ACN, CPC, APC, APGA with no real national spread will not be registered, and personalities like the current president who is a known ethnic bigot cannot emerge as president.

You stupid people that aren't lagosian,you just have the opportunity to live in Lagos, you'll be running your mouth like your fore fathers founded this state..

The height of foolishness is when you decide to lie to yourself.
You must be living under a rock to ask if Lagos was ever clean. Even a baby knows that Ambode has failed woefully. Same Lagosians who stood by Fashola when he faced similar challenges are the ones unanimously rejecting Ambode with his retrogressive, insensitive, distant and vendetta filled government.

I pray they should elect Ambode as their flag bearer and put their house in order. If otherwise,All these Ambode pleading for second term, is just a wash, He has put everything in order and the shake- up is going to disastrous. Ambode's surrender tactics is working like never. Note, Sanwo-Olu is grow bigger and APC is showing all their weakness to the gentle guy. Unless if Ambode is not ready to play the card, they've already handed over the key to unlock their strength. His Excellence, if you loose the primary don't flex power. 1)PLAN ALL THE WAY TO THE END,

They can be defeated.

2)CONCENTRATE YOUR FORCE,

If your plan is later revealed, they are coming back for Presidential plead(Election)

3)DON'T COMMIT TO ANYONE;

Don't be afraid of any consequence. Be your self.


4)ENTER ACTION WITH BOLDNESS.

Go for Goal. Tinubu, was once an errand politician. You can grow your wings because you're in charge.

When Fashola was running for 2nd term, similar issue occured but good personalities of APC spoke in support of him, Same is happening to Ambode now and nobody(i mean good personality not just some anonymous source or some foolish nairaland keyboard warriors) has spoken in support of him.
There and then, we should all know something is wrong somewhere.
Both Sanwo-Olu and Hamzat aint clueless as some cows have been saying on NA, they know the system more than most of us living in Lagos. Let Ambode test his popularity by undergoing the slated primary.
Only Tinubu's pvc can do Ambode re-election no harm so stop making noise about tinubu greediness.

Talk about impunity, corruption and imposition. The no. 1 is APC. Ambode has very clear legacies in Lagos. For me his achievements are greater than those of Tinubu and Fashola combined. Whatever Tunubu/Fashola started Ambode improved on them. He did not start Lawma but he tried to improve on it. He stopped the nuisance attitude of Lasma and VIO in Lagos. Simply put we have the so called private sector operators who prefer to continue using open and rickety vehicles for their refuse collection business. Visionscape is there to improve on whatever shortcomings there are. Our people want to continue doing the same things and expecting different results. We have refuse all over the place because the operators are in court with government. Clearly the outlook of Lagos is changing as the man tries his very best.

Tinubu started the Lagos - Badagry highway issue just before he left. Fashola spent 8 years. Ambode has spent 3.5 years with a promise to complete the project in 2022. Can the two formrr govermors swear that they did not benefit financially from the contract award of the said project?

If they do not want Ambode back, then it shows that Ambode refused to allow the collective patrimony of the people of Lagos find its was into the pockets of a few individuals. That is what I perceive, so they are making him pay for it and paving the way for the man who will do their bidding. Sanwo Olu has already promised that refuse collection will be free. How can he achieve it? Anyway APC is known to make unrealisable promises. Only those who want to be hoodwinked can continue with them. I voted APC in 2015 but with what I have seen so far from the presidency to Ekiti, Osun and Lagos, if Ambode is not chosen then my vote will surely go to Jimi Agbaje if he wins the PDP ticket.


Ur above statement clearly shows you are living in Mowe or Shagamu. I really dnt knw where to start educating you on all this. So people jus wanna be ignorant for life. Well, its your choice. Insult me at your own peril, still doesnt show how intelligent you are.

. You're talking as if Tinubu jump to the rank of dictating. Note, In the game of power, no permanent winner. Ambode is still the governor. Don't try to ignore the fact. Don't underestimate him.

Uhmm, ur above statement is funny.
The only thing Otedola can offer is to buy votes which is becoming rampant. Ask civil servants who they will vote for, trust me its sanwo-olu. Ambode governorship career has reached its peak already. If he defects, that will be the end of his political career in Lagos. As for Otedola, Just because he is considered rich does not guarantee him winning the election if he decides to contest.

Ambode is insisting on APC ticket not because of impeachment. It's unfortunate that election in this country is not won largely because of your achievement or popularity. Party votes contribute like 65% of total votes. If they like, let Ambode and Otedola come together if they don't have a good party structure, forget it.

He has a right to contest and the people have the right to accept or reject him based on his performance. This really is not about Tinubu.

Dirty environment and pothole ridden roads speak volumes. The uncontrolled tanker invasion is another matter. Epe may now be "little London" but Lagos has deteriorated badly in recent years. Ikorodu and the Badagry axis are even worse.

It just looks like the gains of the Tinubu/Fashola era have gradually faded off. Abandoned projects are everywhere yet we voted for continuity.

May the best man win.

Southerners? We are yoruba people, carry your southerner nonsense go! Omo Yeebo go and develop and make your land attractive.

You developed Lagos? Repeat that lie to yourself - but now in front of a mirror. See? It's heavy in your mouth like you're holding a lot of spittle?

So, why are the other SW states not at the level of Lagos in terms of development? No need to rack your brain. I'll try to break it down for you. Lagos was Nigeria's FCT for over 4 decades, that meant it enjoyed national development with national resources (crude oil which is 90% South South).

So, next time if you want to compare SW to SE, SS or any part of Nigeria, use Osun, Oyo, Ekiti, Ondo and Ogun as standard. Not Lagos. Lagos was developed by all Nigerians and to a considerable degree belongs to all Nigerians.

Especially if you've lived in Lagos for up to 25 years, you're automatically a Lagosian and can contest for the post of the governor, or any other elective post - no matter where you come from.

Incidentally most of these folks claiming 'Lagos belongs to us' are actually from Ogun State. SMH.
