A new twist was Saturday afternoon added to the political power game currently on going in the Lagos State chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) as one of the governorship aspirant, Dr Femi Hamzat stepped down from the race for another aspirant, Mr Jide Sanwo-Olu.
With this new arrangement, Dr Hamzat is expected to be chosen as Jide Sanwo-Olu’s running mate in the 2019 gubernatorial elections.
This is occurred at the meeting of the party currently on at the State Secretariat at ACME Road, Ogba, Lagos.
The party’s primary elections to determine the governorship candidate is to take place tomorrow.
The contest will now be between alleged favourite of the National Leader of APC, Ashiwaji Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Mr. Jide Sanwo-Olu and the incumbent governor, Akinwunmi Ambode.
Governor Ambode will be relying on the various good projects he had done for Lagosians to win while the party machinery is massively tilted against him.
