Is Ambode No Longer Loyal To Tinubu and APC?

There was apprehension in the Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Tuesday when Wale Oluwo, Lagos State Commissioner for Energy and Mineral Resources, renounced his membership of the party, vowing to work for Jimi Agbaje, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the next governorship election.

This created fear among APC chieftains who said they now doubt the loyalty of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to the party.

Oluwo, who hails from Epe, the hometown of Ambode, also said he had submitted his letter of resignation to the governor.

Though calls and text messages sent to Oluwo’s phone were not returned, a credible source in the party said that he had reached out to the camp of Agbaje ahead of the election, alongside his supporters.

In his resignation letter, Oluwo accused the leadership of the ruling party of being anti-democratic in the process through which Babajide Sanwo-Olu emerged as the flag bearer of the APC in the 2019 governorship election.

Sanwo-Olu, who enjoyed the support of Mandate Movement, a group loyal to Bola Tinubu, a national leader of the party, made history by beating a sitting governor to the ticket of the party.
Oluwo said the governorship primary had diminished the reputation of the APC in the state.

He alleged that a powerful group in the APC had been violating the principle of separation of powers and “intimidating critical institutions of democracy in the state”.

Part of the letter reads: “A few hours ago, I submitted to His Excellency, the Governor of Lagos State, a letter of resignation of my appointment as the Honourable Commissioner for Energy and Mineral Resources.

“Consequently, as a registered member of the All Progressives Congress, I have deemed it necessary to formally notify you of my intention to reconsider my membership status.

“My decision to resign is not unconnected with the events of the last few weeks, which have created a heavy moral burden for me.


“I have found it rather difficult to come to terms or rationalize the party’s conduct of the October 2018 primary elections, which were largely characterised by massive voter disenfranchisement, intimidation, violence, undue influence and non-compliance with all known principles of democracy.


“In the particular case of the gubernatorial primary, which was conducted using the ‘open ballot’ option in violation of the guidelines of the APC that specified the ‘open-secret ballot’ option, it is clear to me that the core principles of merit, competence, justice and fairness have been sacrificed by the APC on the altar of political expediency.


“The integrity-deficient nature of the primary has significantly diminished the hard-earned reputation of our state as a reference point for free and fair democratic practice.


“I have struggled for weeks to understand the rationale for the apparent desperation and brigandage brazenly displayed by the party apparatchik in the various elections. I had never thought such vicious attack could be unleashed on the progress that the state had made in its steady democratic journey.


“The indifference of the APC to the continued use of an arm of government by a powerful group within the party, to intimidate critical institutions of democracy in the state, undermines the doctrine of separation of powers, creates an atmosphere of uncertainty and impairs government’s ability to implement policies and programmes that will benefit the majority of the people.


“This is in conflict with my strongly held belief that group interest, no matter how powerful, must be subordinated to the interest of the majority.


“I am convinced that the present atmosphere of encirclement will not abate anytime soon. I, therefore, resign my membership of the All Progressives Congress, immediately.”

Speaking with Daily Independent on Wednesday, a chieftain of the party said though Governor Ambode had pledged his unalloyed support to the party and had promised to work for the success of President Muhammadu Buhari and Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the party’s governorship candidate, Oluwo’s actions had shown that there might be surprises ahead.

He said while Ambode had appealed to Epe residents to work for the APC, many of them who were still embittered were not listening to him and might work against the APC in the forthcoming election.

“To me, I am not surprised by the developments at all. After the primaries, the governor pledged to work for APC but a lot of people doubted him.
“So, if Oluwo, who hails from Epe like the governor, is now leaving the party, promising to work for our opponent, then we will begin to suspect the governor,” he said.

Another party chieftain who refused to be named also said like Oluwo, some loyalists of the governor might also leave the party.

“The coming days will be interesting. They thought they can rubbish a sitting governor like that?
“Ambode may have forgiven them and moved on but I can tell you a lot of his supporters and even Lagosians are unhappy,” he said.

Lagos State is at Peace and will remain on the part of Excellence. PDP, the leap-year Chemist and Atikulooters can go grieve elsewhere.

God bless Lagos State!

Epe people can support Agbaje if they like it's no big deal, freedom of choice is their right.

However, there are 2 Local Governments in Lagos who determine elections: Alimosho and Ifako Ijaiye. Provided those 2 are intact along with traditional APC strongholds like Lagos Island, Ikeja, Apapa and Ikorodu, APC is good to go.

Agbaje's disgrace would start from within PDP itself.

I also want Apc to lose Lagos. Really, Lagos has not developed at same pace has its contemporary African cities. Tinubu and his gang have been fleecing this city in the guise of an obscured development agenda only to witness Tinubu become stupendously wealthy. It's very hard to see a tarred street in Alimosho , Badagry, Surulere.
No functional transport system to meet the increasing demands of Lagos population . And you call it a mega City

The only problem I have is that I don't see PDP as an option. Jimi Agbaje might have good intentions but in PDP, you can't perform anything.

What we need is an entirely new Party to take over. I even prefer AD. Their candidate is a known philanthropist

Did I mention Agbaje being Ipob or you're just perpetually dyslexic?

By the way, it's Agbaje and not Agbeje. Gala hawker.

The commissioner is one of the people that failed Lagos state. Tinubu is not stupid, he knows that Ambode has failed so he cannot get support from the people he could not do that with Fashola because he changed the face of Lagos low standard by me but 100% better than Ambode.

Must everybody be loyal to a particular person? The commissioner decamped to where he thought can help his political ambition so what concerns ambode over his resignation? He should hold him by trouser and prostrate for him , begging him not to go, abi? The way some hungry bloggers create fuss from nothing is alarming...

He can remain Loyal or disloyal. It doesn't change anything.

Fashola who was more influential than him at that time was at logger head with Almighty Jagaban and it still didn't change election result.

Jagaban has incore loyalist who are not even in frontlines of politics but are powers that be.

Ambode is a kid in this game. His best best is to align and get compensated after election.

Renouncing now will only take him into political oblivion.

I still do not understand why AMBODE is Accused!

Chief Bola Tinubu said he could not influenced the people of the Mandate Movement to support Ambode .

Then why should Gov. Ambode be accused! He also could not influence the likes of the Energy commissioner
