Owing to all the activities that have occurred in the last few days, it is glaringly obvious that the supports that the incumbent Governor of Lagos State was seeking for, from his own party for him to be able to contest for a 2nd term in office as the Governor of Lagos State is never going to come.

From all the indications/feelers  available it is obvious that the cookies have all crumbled one by one, one after the other and there seems to be no respite in the horizon for Double A and the only thing now left for him to do, is either to dump the party that got him there or just as a loyal party man to the core, just accept his fate and be resigned to the fact that he would officially become the 1st Governor in the history of the state, to be refused the chance or opportunity to do or contest a 2nd term.

We hear though but not confirmed that, if he were to honourably step down which he has refused to do, the Governor would be given a Ministerial position in the next dispensation were the APC to win the next Presidential election.

Just yesterday, the only hope that was remaining for him to get the full support he needed was dashed as the GAC (Governor’s Advisory Council), chaired by the National Leader of the ruling APC decided that the primary was it and they also unilaterally gave their support to the ambition of Babajide Olusola SANWOOLU! Not only that, one of those that had been earmarked to contest the primary that has now been shifted again till Monday, October 1, 2018, in the person of Dr. Femi Hamzat, a special adviser to the Works, Housing and Power Minister, Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola, who had lost to Ambode at this same stage in 2015, in fact resigned his ambition for party loyalty, by stepping down (withdrew) to now do a joint ticket with Babajide Olusola SANWOOLU. Though the joint ticket has not been officially communicated yet. Dr Femi Hamzat on stepping down, immediately endorsed the candidature of BOS!

By the action of Dr. Femi Hamzat, it means the 2 most powerful teams/families in APC Lagos politics have joined arms and hands together as one, to prosecute 1 dream! Not just that alone, at least 36 out of the 40 LSHA (Lagos State House of Assembly) members at an emergency session yesterday under the leadership of the Speaker of the house, Hon. Mubashiru Obasa all appended their signatures in their support of Babajide Olusola SANWOOLU’s ambition. Their decision was communicated by the chairman House Committee on information, strategy and security, Hon. Funmilayo Tejuosho (pay back time it seems, as it was her house that the Government under the administration of Akinwunmi Ambode took over and demolished).

It should also be recalled that the Iyaloja General of Lagos, Chief. Mrs. Folasade Tinubu-Ojo had endorsed the candidature of Babajide Olusola Sanwoolu, that’s effectively saying that the market men and women in Lagos are solidly behind BOS. Long before the endorsement by the Iyaloja, various other groups, likes of the Waste Management and others have openly indicated their support of Babajide Olusola Sanwoolu.

It is very instructive to know the composition of the GAC that had the meeting yesterday, those at that meeting comprised of the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, the National Leader of the ruling APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the speaker of the LSHA, Hon. Mudashiru Obasa and other stakeholders.

More after the break.
