Akinwumi Ambode has stirred a hot debate on social media after his revelations about his ace contender, Jide Sanwoolu.
Ambode revealed during his emergency press conference in Lagos today, that Sanwoolu is mentally unfit and such records are in Gbagada general hospital.
The governor also made it known that Sanwoolu was once arrested in the USA for spending fake dollars in a nightclub.
Sanwoolu, is reportedly the favoured candidate for the All Progressives Congress(APC) lagos state governorship election in 2019, after Ambode lost the support of his political godfathers.
Many Nigerians are talking about the revelations from Ambode’s Sunday press conference.
See reactions below
Ambode says Sanwo was once mad and committed forex fraud. He could literally be describing many current politicians and Twitter people. Doesn't rule out Sanwo Olu by Nigerian Standards…lol

If you haven't read The Prince, this is the time to. If the 'Elites' are against you, it's time to get the 'masses' behind you.
Pull down those toll gate. That's their source of revenue. Cripple it. Go all out against the 'elites' while making the 'masses' happy.

Ambode don’t really understand the politics of Lagos/Nigeria. You don’t come out in the open and leak damaging infos about an opponent when you could have just used proxies to leak it to the press 🤦♂️🤦♂️

Ambode accused Sanwo-Olu of spending fake dollars in a night club and also insinuated that went to rehab for addiction.
Yet this same Sanwo-Olu served under his Administration as the MD, LSDPC.

Good thing about the goings-on in Lagos APC is even if Ambode loses out eventually, he's put a chink in Tinubu's armour, and thats a win.
People now know he can be challenged. My prediction is Tinubu's influence on Lagos politics will be completely over in as little as 10 years.

Speak for yourself…
Campaign for yourself…
What's with the name calling???
To gain pity or what?
Worse is people who hate APC stanning for him.. Is Ambode's party no longer APC?
So suddenly all of them are no longer the same..

Ambode: Sanwo-Olu is not fit and was also caught spending fake dollars
Tinubu boys: Wow. You will hear from us soon. The world will know the truth about you.

Chimaroke was Sullivan’s godfather. Chimaroke put him there but Sullivan was able to win the hearts of the people with his good work and generosity that’s why he was able to fight Chimaroke. What foundation has Ambode laid in Lagos that he thinks he can fight Tinubu.

See, if you people push Ambode too far he will probably open LAGOS’ books and your favorite godfather and everyone else who has ever been involved will go down with him! Every single person!!
Dude is very vindictive!!

I doubt anybody can understand the magnitude of the stupidity in Ambode's Press Conference…

Ambode is shooting wildly and is hitting some targets. Dear Gods, please let this be the beginning of the end of the Tinubu dynasty in Lagos. 🤣🤣

Ambode has done his Pre Match Press Conference ahead of Tomorrow's Lagos El Classico Clash with Tinubu
He says he is ready to play a very aggressive ATTACKING Formation
And that the opposing striker, Sanwa Olu, is INJURY prone and UNFIT to play the game.
