In what is appearing to be a positive turn of events for embattled Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, a scheduled rally to kick start the campaign of Babajide Sanwo-Olu has been cancelled.
According to a chieftain of the party who prefers to be anonymous, they received an order ‘from our Leader’ that the rally scheduled to hold at the Blue Roof in the premises of Lagos State Television (LTV) should be cancelled.
He disclosed that the decision may be the fallout of the meeting between President Muhammadu Buhari and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu on the political crisis in Lagos State.
