The Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mudashiru Ajayi Obasa, has told the Governor of Lagos, Akinwunmi Ambode, that sharing money or giving bribes would not save him as his time is up.
Ambode is facing a primary election on Monday but his party has turned against him. Bola Tinubu, the godfather of Lagos publicly dumped him on Sunday, and endorsed Jide Sanwo-olu, a former commissioner in Lagos.
In his statement on Sunday, Tinubu said Ambode had deviated from the policies outlined for him and was no longer an asset for the party and Lagos residents.
