2019: 'We Welcome You', PDP Toasts Ambode
Two strong personalities seem set and well backed to ensure that Governor Ambode does not get his desired second term as Lagos state governor.
For many Lagosians, it is something to worry about but for the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, all they see is an opportunity to further deplete the opponent’s camp.
That is politics, isn’t it?
Lagos PDP Publicity Secretary, Taofeek Gani, in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) has declared PDP’s willingness to welcome Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode into its fold if he decided to dump APC.
Gani said: “Any forward-looking party would not have rejected its main opponent joining it, especially a big personality like Ambode.
“We are ready to welcome him (Ambode) to our party, if he decides to join for any reason. We are very ready to accept him, if he decides to join us.
“You see PDP is a party for all, so far value will be added. We cannot turn down our opponents, especially a big personality like Ambode.
“Therefore, he is welcome. His joining us will definitely add value and boost our chances to win the state.”
He added the party would accord him all the rights and privileges with the existing members to realise his political ambitions.
A former Commissioner for Training and Establishments in the state, Mr Jide Sanwo-Olu, and Former Commissioner for Works, Dr Obafemi Hamzat, are the biggest names seeking Ambode’s job.
The APC chairman in Lagos State, Alhaji Tunde Balogun has insisted that the governorship ticket of the party was open to all aspirants.
