A PDP chieftain, Chinedu Eya has assured Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State that he has the votes of 30 million Lagosians.
Chinedu Eya made this statement barely days after promising to sell off his Lagos property worth N53 million to buy a nomination form for the embattled governor if he fails to clinch the APC gubernatorial ticket.
Chief Eya said: “Like I said last week, I am willing to sell off my 53 million naira building in Lagos here to purchase nomination and expression of interest forms for Governor Ambode, even if he chooses to contest under any other platform other than the PDP, in the case of his orchestrated loss in the APC’s primary, following the pervading gang up against him.
“The Lawmakers and their pay masters are playing God. But they will receive the shock of their lives as over 30 million Lagosians are willing to support Governor Ambode, even if he flies any other party’s flag in the contest.
“I want the governor to disregard the recent endorsement of Mr. Sanwo Olu by over 36 lawmakers in the state, as that can never take the place of over 30 million Lagosians who are ready to return their working governor come 2019, under any other platform.
30 million Lagosians are ready to vote for Ambode – PDP chieftain
Yesterday, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode gave a world press conference in which he stated that he is the only one fit to do the job Lagos requires.
He also accused his main opponent, Jide Sanwo-olu, of not being fit for the job because he has once been arrested for spending fake dollars in America and has undergone rehabilitation at a hospital in Gbagada.
In his words, “we have never responded to the campaign of calumny on social media. We have one family in APC. The aspirant being put up to compete against us is not a fit and proper person to take this job.
“I have done everything in the last three and half years to serve people selflessly and to serve the poor. This particular aspirant is somebody that has been arrested for spend fake dollars in a nightclub in America, and he has been detained for months.
“He doesn’t have the competence to do what he is being propelled to do. This is somebody that has gone for rehabilitation before. The records are there at the Gbagada General Hospital. We don’t want to go to far. Our leadership should have a rethink.
I plead with our leaders to have a rethink, It is not about me, it is about the opportunity that APC has.”
