You Can Negotiate For Compensation, Ambode Tells Aggrieved APC Aspirants
Governor of Lagos State Akinwunmi Ambode has really moved on from his defeat in the All Progressives Congress governorship primaries to Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
Ambode will not be running for second term in the 2019 governorship election in Lagos State despite his desire to do so.
Speaking at an APC stakeholders meeting in Lagos on Monday, Ambode advised other aspirants in his shoes to sheath their sword and rather reconcile or even negotiate compensation.
“We need loyalty and your support for our candidates at the gubernatorial level, senatorial, house of reps and presidency level.
“So this is the way our campaign will go, as we look forward to February 16, we know that it is Buhari/Osinbajo ticket that the whole of Lagos will vote for. As we proceed two weeks later on March 2, we also declare here that it is the Sanwo-Olu/Hamzat ticket that will take over from me.
“Where there is a platform for reconciliation, let us proceed to continue to reconcile, and where there is a platform for compensation, we should also proceed to do so. So that all our aspirants who are not candidates must be ready to sacrifice for the overall collective of our party, it is very important so that we can move our party forward. It is only when we win, we can compensate, it is only when we win we can reconcile, so lets have that collective decision to move APC forward,” he said.
