2019: Tinubu dumps Ambode, backs Sanwoolu for Lagos gov: Politics : Nigerialog.com - Nigeria's Premier Online Forum
Governor Ambode may have found himself in a tight corner due what the party leaders regard as his many sins.
But, before now, the governor had been detached from the party and its leaders who consistently complained to Tinubu.One of the party leaders told Daily Sun, yesterday, that, “the governor had, on three occasions, asked some of the party leaders to meet him in the office for interaction.“On each occasion we spent a minimum of five hours waiting to meet him and at the end of the day, his aides would tell us the governor had gone out for other official engagements.“Aside that, he promised the state party executive official vehicles. After a long wait, he then said he was going to give each N2.5 million to buy used cars; we accepted and till today, there has been no word from him.”The governor is also believed to have lost the needed support due to some of his unpopular policies.One of such is increment in taxes, especially the Land Use Charge by over 400 percent, a decision which impacted negatively on the image of the APC in the state.Another is the sacking of private operators of the waste management sector.
