PHOTOS: Tense Atmosphere As APC Determines Ambode, Sanwo- Olu's Fate
The tussle for the governorship ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State is holding today, Saturday 29.
It is a tense environment, as Lagos residents wait patiently to hear the result and the choice of the candidate that is likely to govern the state for another 4 years.
It is holding at the party’s Secretariat at Acme Road in Ikeja, the capital of Lagos State.
The battle is between Governor Akinwunmi Ambode and Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
Supporters of both contenders throng the venue while party members also came to witness what could be described as a fight between two elephants.
While the tension mounts, one of the contenders, Dr Femi Hamzat, withdrew from the race, declaring his support for Mr Sanwo-Olu.
There are claims that he was offered the Deputy Governor’s position.
However, the camp of the incumbent Governor is also putting up a fight, as the Governor has refused to chicken out of the race as a result of pressure and loss of support from some party leaders that became glaring weeks ago.
At the venue, banners of different sizes and types are in the air, emblazoned different statements of support for the candidate whose images or names appear on them.
