'The governor is currently deserted as critical stakeholders in the state have pitched tents with his rival, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.'

This is according to a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chinedu Eya.

He declared that Lagos residents were prepared to re-elect Governor Akinwunmi Ambode if the latter could simply dump the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Eya declared that Ambode would win in 2019 if he decided to fly the ticket of any other political party.

In a statement personally signed by the PDP chieftain, who earlier promised to sell his Lagos house to help the governor purchase a PDP ticket, he charged Ambode to disregard the recent endorsement of his opponent, Sanwo Olu by 36 lawmakers of state’s House of Assembly as well as the pressure on him to stand down from the 2019 elections.

He described the move against Ambode as a ‘mockery of God’s supremacy’.

“Like I said last week, I am willing to sell off my building in Lagos here to purchase nomination and expression of interest forms for Governor Ambode, even if he chooses to contest under any other platform other than the PDP, in the case of his orchestrated loss in the APC’s primary, following the pervading gang up against him.

“The Lawmakers and their pay masters are playing God. But they will receive the shock of their lives as over 20 million Lagosians are willing to support Governor Ambode, even if he flies any other party’s flag in the contest.

“I want the governor to disregard the recent endorsement of Mr Sanwo Olu by over 36 lawmakers in the state, as that can never take the place of over 20 million Lagosians who are ready to return their working governor come 2019, under any other platform,” he said.
