Lagos State governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, has held a “no hold barred” press conference in Lagos, launching fierce attack on Babajide Sanwoolu, his major opponent in tomorrow’s All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary election.
The press conference was held at government house, Alausa, Ikeja.
Urging the leadership of APC which have virtually withdrawn support fro him ahead of the primaries to have a rethink, Ambode said Sanwoolu, is mentally and morally unfit to be Lagos governor.
He alleged that Sanwoolu was arrested for fraud in the United States.
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 spending 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.
