Akinwunmi Ambode Campaign Organisation has said it has concluded plans to challenge Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for the Lagos All Progressives Congress governorship ticket.
The group also promised that it would send Sanwo-Olu out of office in 2023.
The chairman of AMCO and former Commissioner for Energy and Mineral resources, Wale Oluwo, made this known during a radio programme, CityTalks with Reuben Abati.
“Our strategy is not to join PDP. We are within the APC. Our interest is to contest the primary of the party and get the governorship and other tickets. APC will win Lagos and that will be the APC of Ambode campaign organisation.”
This is coming about a week after the Governor’s Advisory Council reportedly endorsed Sanwo-Olu for the second term in office.
The former governor’s group leader faulted GAC for endorsing Sanwo-Olu, saying the position of GAC is not a reflection of Lagos APC members.
“GAC doesn’t have such powers. Ambode did well. AMCO candidates will pick the nomination forms next week. We want to be the driver of that change in Lagos,” he said.
