Following the viral trend of rift, the Lagos state Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode have dismissed it saying there is no issue between him and Bola Tinubu.
A trend picked up on social media and blogs about rift between Akinwunmi Ambode and the National Leader of APC, Bola Tinubu. The trend went hot with fact on how a good number of Local Government Chairmen have signed him off.
Abode have described this rift as untrue, adding that there is no fight anywhere, while addressing party faithful at the APC secretariat in Epe, saying the report is out of place.
“I want you to know that there is no fight anywhere. The National Leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and my good self we are not in any fight, we are not in any controversy.
“We are praying to God that the best is yet to come and the best will be what Lagos State deserves and I want you to just continue with your prayers that at this time, God will show His hand and make sure that everything that is of blessing to Lagos State and also blessing of Epe will come to pass,” Governor Ambode said.
He commended all the leaders and members of the party who contributed to the success of the delegates’ election in Epe, saying APC remained the party to vote for.
“We have just concluded our Delegates’ Election in Epe Local Government and by consensus, we have picked our three delegates that will be going to the National Convention come October 6 for the Presidential direct primaries and the convention for all other people.
“I want to say a very big thank you to all our delegates that are present here; I want to say a big thank you to all our leaders that have also supported us to make sure that this event has come and is done very successfully.
“I want to reiterate once again that our party, All Progressives Congress (APC) remains the party to vote for; we are the party at the national level and we are going to remain the party in the State,” the Governor added.
The rift between the two have been permanently settled. Ambode will run for APC.
