National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu had been under attack by The Save Lagos Group (SLG) for opposing the nomination of the immediate past governor of Lagos state, Akinwunmi Ambode.
The group (SLG) made this assertion and called on Bola Tinubu to stop playing God over rumoured plan to appoint the immediate past Governor of the State, Akinwunmi Ambode into the yet-to-be-constituted cabinet of President Muhammadu Buhari.
SLG said their reaction is based on the statement credited to the National leader of APC, Bola Tinubun that he would resign his membership of the APC if President Buhari nominates Ambode as ministerial nominee from the State.
The group’s Convener, Comrade Adeniyi, Alimi Sulaiman, released the resolution of the group to our correspondence on Tuesday, that “Tinubu has turned himself to Alpha and Omega of the State nay Nigeria politics, forgetting that only God gives and takes power and no human being can act like God.”
The Save Lagos Group (SLG) also maintained that “all the ideas of Tinubu in the political permutation of the State and Nigeria were parochial and self serving.
“Ambode is more qualified than Tinubu because Ambode is educationally qualified to hold any position including Minister in the country, because he doesn’t have ‘Chicagogate’ on his educational qualification like Mr. Godfatherism.”
Daily Tells understands that President Muhammadu Buhari has tipped the immediate past governor of Lagos state for Ministerial appointment because of the way he was treated to drop the Governorship ambition.
Ambode second term ambition as governor of Lagos state was thwarted by his godfather, Bola Tinubu. It was because of Ambode, the ruling APC national working committee (NWC) through the leadership of Adam Oshiomole who is still Tinubu’s anointed brought the double standard of Direct Primaries and Indirect primaries.
The Save Lagos Group (SLG) has ordered Bola Tinubu to stop playing God in the affairs of Men; for opposing the nomination of the immediate past governor of Lagos state, Akinwunmi Ambode is satanic and the President should do the needful by appointing Ambode because he (Buhari) is the leader of the party and he can do without Tinubu.
