Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State on Sunday alleged that another aspirant in the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, is not fit to govern the state.
Mr Ambode, who has been on the edge over concerns the APC machinery in Lagos has endorsed Sanwo-Olu, made the allegation in an extraordinary press conference at Government House, Alausa, Ikeja.
He said the aspirant was arrested for spending fake dollars in the United States and had undergone rehabilitation at Gbagada General Hospital in Lagos.
“The aspirant being put up to compete against us is not a fit and proper person to take this job.
“I have done everything in the last three and half years to serve people selflessly and to serve the poor.
“This particular aspirant is somebody that has been arrested for spending fake dollars in a nightclub in America, and he has been detained for months.
“He doesn’t have the competence to do what he is being propelled to do. This is somebody that has gone for rehabilitation before. The records are there at the Gbagada General Hospital.”
Ambode’s allegation comes a day before the APC primaries to choose the party’s flagbearer in the 2019 poll.
