Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State was yesterday waiting to receive a strict code of conduct he must follow after high level interventions from Abuja brought rekindled hopes for him to get a second term ticket of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The interventions ordered by President Muhammadu Buhari, according to high level sources, led to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo meeting with national party leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu up to the early hours of yesterday.
National Party chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole also met with Tinubu yesterday on the issue in the latter’s Asokoro, Abuja residence.
Tinubu who was still in Abuja as at press time yesterday was still contemplating on how to rally the troops towards Ambode following the pleas. “Asiwaju is in a quagmire as the matter of Ambode has been taken away from him as it is a problem for him to go and ask the foot soldiers to soften towards the governor.”
