More Details Emerge On Otedola’s Gubernatorial Ambition

Ace journalist and founder of the Ovation Magazine International – Dele Momodu has continued to publish inside details about the Lagos State politics.
Following his decision to key into the plans of the Peoples Democratic Party to wrestle power from the ruling party in Lagos State, in the forthcoming 2019 governorship election, as their flag bearer, The Boss can confirm that billionaire oil magnate, Mr. Femi Otedola, never planned to run against Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, the current Governor of Lagos State.

Sources revealed to The Boss that Otedola had his eyes on the 2023 Gubernatorial election when Ambode may have concluded his tenure because of the promise he made to him (Ambode) that he will never run against him. And as Otedola puts it to his friends “I always keep my promise”.

However, as a result of the crisis in the Lagos All Progressives Congress (APC) where Ambode seems to have been dumped by his political godfather, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Otedola decided to bring his ambition forward.

He decided that if Ambode’s godfather has dumped him in preference for another aspirant, he is free from the promise not to contest against Ambode, and run against whoever Tinubu brings up as the party’s flag bearer.
