Guber ticket: Ambode in closed-door meeting with Buhari

Thursday, September 20, 2018
Governor Akinwumi Ambode of Lagos State on Thursday had a closed-door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

The meeting was said to be part of the last minute moves to settle the rift between Ambode and his godfather, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

Tinubu and his loyalists in Lagos State are reportedly opposed to Ambode’s second term and are backing another governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

The rift between Tinubu and Ambode had reportedly defied external interventions.

In what was believed to be part of his continued efforts to secure a second term in office, Ambode appeared at the Presidential Villa on Thursday.

He walked into the Presidential Villa at about 2.45pm and went into a private meeting with Buhari.

It was gathered that the meeting followed the appeal by the APC governors for the President’s intervention to save Ambode.

It was learnt that the President might also meet with APC stakeholders in Lagos in the next few days.
