FASHOLA VS TINUBU-IS THE LAGOS APC READY TO IMPLODE?

SUPO SHASORE,SAN
AKINWUNMI AMBODE
ASIWAJU BOLA AHMED TINUBU, GOVERNOR EMERITUS
Hmmmmmmmmm!!!!!! If it is true what we hear, then the plan of the opposition in Lagos might already be working and they might already be winning the battle ahead of the upcoming election, even though the election is still many many months away. 

There have been the unsubstantiated rumour and speculations all this while, that all might not be well between Governor Babatunde Fashola & his godfather, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. The rumour mill seems to suggest that both are only just still tolerating each other, just to maintain peace and not necessarily jeopardize a lot of things. Though when most of this things crop up, people are said to come in to always sooth the nerves of the parties in involved. There seems to be another battle of supremacy playing out right now underground. According to the unconfirmed gist, the present Governor who has enjoyed 2 terms and who would be leaving when his tenure expires soon, is said to be favourably disposed to his own man Supo Shasore, SAN, who was the former Commissioner for Justice & Attorney General in Lagos (2007-2011) to succeed him as the next Executive Governor of the State of Excellence.

While the Governor is said to prefer Supo Shasore, his party's (APC) chief and benefactor on the other hand is said to favour another candidate entirely. Some have 'suggested' that the man after Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu's heart is Akinwunmi Ambode, a retired Permanent Secretary and the former Lagos State Accountant General.

This supposed choices of the 2 powerful men in Lagos politics is said to be causing some major disaffection & frictions, with supporters on each side already said to be going to their different trenches to begin a battle of supremacy. With this supposedly happening underground, it brings to mind the question; Can APC retain the rulership of Lagos? Can a kingdom divided against itself stand to win the battle against a growing formidable enemy(ies)? 

It is not just the PDP that the APC would have to contend with on the battlefield, there's also the growing love for JayKay- that is Jimi Agbaje, who we hear is quietly growing his formidable tentacles underground and might even be getting the full support of the powers that be at the center; who are hell bent on upsetting APC's apple cart any which way they can.

So would APC implode over the egos of these 2 strong men? Would the 2 juggernauts sheath their swords and agree on a candidate to put forward? The coming weeks will tell. Let's even see who get power pass!!!

Meanwhile, who would you prefer? Supo Shasore or Akinwunmi Ambode? 

Please have in mind that a normally accurate predictor like Primate Elijah Babatunde Ayodele of Inri Evangelical Ministries has ruled out the likes of Ganiyu Solomon, Musiliu Obanikoro, Akinwunmi Ambode and others from winning the next election. He has predicted that an unknown from Ikorodu would emerge.

Ambode of course. Supo is ok. Very principled. But that his wife? Lai lai. We Lagosians dont want abeg. Interesting race

Ah, what's wrong with Mrs Gbemi Sasore?

BAT holds the upper hand and his choice will get the nod.

Quite interesting. It could go either way. May the best man win. Mrs. Sasore is a nice lady, smart and poised.

It is too early for trash talking

Akinwunmi Ambode is the choice. He is not only very competent - he has proven his good character over and over again.

Ambode Akinwunmi fits the bill on the scale of competence and time-tested administrative prowess. This acclaimed tussle of interest btw BRF and BAT shouldn't be blown over more than necessary, the power to empower actually lies on the thumbs of lagosians, and I believe quite a lot lagosians will attest to and vote for the sagacity they'd get in a Akinwunmi Ambode

Shasore looks tough. Only tough people can rule Lagos. May the best man win. Someone that will do better than BRF.
