He stated this in a response to a question on the subject on Twitter, insisting that he and Ambode were on the same page.
Ambode and Bola Ahmed Tinubu, National Leader of the APC, endured a cold relationshop over the latter’s refusal to support the incumbent governor of the state for a second term in office.
The issue came to a head on September 30, 2018, when Ambode declared that Sanwo-Olu, Tinubu’s ‘favoured candidate’, had once been “arrested for spending fake dollars” and was “unfit” to govern Lagos.
However, Sanwo-Olu had said he forgave the governor for the statement. The duo have, afterwards, been seen at events together.
Sanwo-Olu and his running mate, Femi Hamzat, had held a meeting Lagosians on Monday where he answered questions on his plans for Lagos State if he wins the 2019 governorship election.
In what seemed to be a continuation on the question-and-answer session on Tuesday, Sanwo-Olu tweeted: “On the ‘Ambode Issue’…let me state it here that there is no Ambode issue. He is my governor. We are one party and our goals are the same. A better and greater Lagos is our challenge”.
On the 'Ambode Issue'…let me state it here that there is no Ambode issue. He is my governor. We are one party and our goals are the same. A better and greater Lagos is our challenge.
