FCG learned that this is coming about 12 days after Governor Sanwo-Olu in a surprise move showed up at the 60th birthday celebration of Ambode.
FCG Recalled that former Governor Ambode fell out with President Tinubu’s political camp which included Governor Sanwo-Olu and former Governor Fashola in the build-up to the 2019 governorship election in the state after the All Progressive Congress (APC) denied Ambode reelection.
Ambode had seriously spoken against the governorship ambition of Sanwo-Olu ahead of the primary election of the APC in Lagos.
