“Four Generations Of Lagos Governors: See Why Fashola Reconciles With Ambode Because Of Tinubu
President Bola Tinubu who governed Lagos from 1999-2007 has united Babatunde Fashola and Akinwumi Ambode. You will recall that at the expiration of his second tenure, Fashola handed over the baton of the state to Ambode.
A clash between Tinubu and Ambode saw him losing the All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship primaries in the state in 2018. During the primary election, Ambode lashed out at Tinubu and his successor, Sanwo-Olu.
The reconciliation process started when the incumbent governor visited the former during his 60th birthday recently.
Sanwo-Olu said Ambode dedicated his time to the service of Lagos State as a governor and civil servant.
In furtherance of the reconciliation process, Tinubu, Fashola, and Ambode were together yesterday at the welcome back party organized by the state governor in honour of the president.
Commenting on the meeting, Sanwo-Olu’s media aide, Gboyega Akosile tweeted: “Four Generations! Three former governors, the incumbent governor and a president- all from Lagos. God bless Lagos State. @officialABAT
