Lagos 2019: Wike Gives Ambode Advise On ‘Godfatherism’
With the alleged rift between Governor Akinwunmi Ambode and the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, some advice would not be a bad idea.
So, the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike on Thursday admonished his Lagos State counterpart to resist the practice of “godfatherism” in his state.
“If it is correct that the godfather is against Ambode, I will tell him (Ambode) to resist it. I will tell him to promote the interest of his state. Godfatherism is not good. It negates development.”
Wike also declared that 'godfatherism' has no place in Rivers State.
“No more godfather politics in Rivers State. We are not in Lagos State. Rivers State will not accept godfatherism. My concern is to do well for Rivers State.
“For the over three years that we have managed Rivers State, nobody of good conscience will say that we have not done well. We are not threatened because in Rivers State, PDP is a dominant party”, he said.
Tinubu is said to have anointed Babajide Sanwoolu as the next governor of Lagos State.
This allegation was confirmed by the Vice Chairman of the APC in Lagos East Senatorial District, Asipa Kaoli Olusanya, who claims to have received orders from Jagaban to work towards the emergence of Sanwonolu.
What will be your advice to Governor Ambode?
