Situation report from Lagos APC primary holding today

Today, the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos state, will pick their governorship candidate for next year’s elections.

The two major aspirants are incumbent Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode and Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Ambode is fighting a tough battle to remain in office for another four years, as Sanwo-Olu has the backing of Ahmed Bola Tinubu, the National Chairman of the party.

Tinubu and other APC leaders in the state have endorsed Sanwo-Olu for the party’s governorship ticket.

Ambode, apparently infuriated by the development, opened a can of warns against Sanwo-Olu.

It remains to be seen how all these play out on Tuesday and which man gets the ticket.
