The National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has blamed poor leadership abilities for the decision not to support Akinwumi Ambode for a second term as Lagos State Governor.
According to him, Ambode’s administration was leading Lagos State in the wrong direction and couldn’t be allowed to continue that way as he was heading in the wrong direction.
Tinubu further disclosed that the drift between Ambode’s leadership and the vision for Lagos State became noticeable between 2017-2018.
The APC National leader said this on Friday at a ceremony to commission a flyover bridge at Pen Cinema, which was started by the Ambode’s administration but completed by the Babajide Sanwo-Olu administration.
Tinubu added that the errors noticed by political leaders in the state are what led to the decision to jettison Ambode and bring Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and Obafemi Hamzat, on board.
According to the APC leader, though they were not sure of what the performance of Sanwo-Olu and Hamzat would be, the two leaders have so far proven their worth despite the prevailing challenges.
He commended the Sanwo-Olu administration for steering the state back in the right direction, describing him and his team as “great performers and doers”.
