*Ambode consults followers with the intent to endorse Tinubu’s Candidate for Gov.
*Weighs Ministerial slot or a move to ADC with his ardent supporters.
Akinwunmi Ambode, the executive Gov of Lagos state seemed finally to be at a cross road as he consults with his ardent followers and supporters his next moves which seemed like bowing to the dictates of the Jagaban of Lagos and jettisoning his 2nd term bid.
Daily Watch findings in Lagos confirmed that Governor Akinwunmi Ambode since his return from Abuja after consulting with the President Mohammadu Buhari has been on a marathon meet with some of his loyal and ardent followers over which step to take.
According to findings, the meet between the President and Ambode centered simply on Ambode acceding to the wish of Bola Tinubu to step down from the 2nd term pursuit and endorse the Choice of Bola Tinubu and in return free himself from any form f probing, a ministerial position if APC wins the 2019 Presidency and room to pick three Commissioner positions in Lagos state that is if he opt to bow down and endorsed Tinubu’s choice but alternatively go for the primaries which is totally skewed to favors his opponents and face a massive probe and no recognition in APC after his losing the Primaries.
The embattled Governor according to close associates is contemplating acceding to the advise of President Buhari and the APC Chairman which is remain in APC, endorse Bola Tinubu’s Choice and get a ministerial post but for his Wife and some close associates pressuring him to go for the Primaries and as agreed with ADC move to the ADC if he loses at the APC Primary which is certainly going to happen as the Party, President and Bola Tinubu have all in one voice spoken against his return for 2nd term.
How the Lagos state top man Ambode would wrestle out of the unique quagmire he now finds himself would be known in the few days from today when he is expected to state his position after been given time by the President and APC chairman to consult with his followers and finally decide.
Attempts by Daily Watch to reach out to the embattled governor who now seemed like a man alone in the sea having also be dumped by other APC governors who initially vowed to stand by him following Presidency warnings was not possible as h is said to be totally sad and in a confused state.
