Publisher of lifestyle magazine, Ovation international, Mr. Dele Momodu has congratulated Lagos State governor, Mr. Akinwumi Ambode, for accepting defeat and congratulating his opponent, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, in the just concluded governorship primary election of the All Progressives Congress in the State.
The governorship election which held on Tuesday 2nd of October, saw Mr Ambode suffering a heavy defeat to his opponent but, has decided not to make an issue out of the development. Rather, he has congratulated his opponent and thanked the party and its national leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, whom many believe was the main factor behind Ambode’s defeat.
Reacting to the development, Mr Momodu wrote on his Twitter handle, “I congratulate Governorn Akinwumi Ambode for knowing when to accept reality by conceding to his opponent, Babajide Sanwo-Olu and would encourage him to work harder on completing some of the great projects he has started…. There are better days ahead”, he concludes.
Recall that Mr Momodu was the person who announced that Billionaire businessman, Femi Otedola, had accepted to vie for the governorship of Lagos State on the platform of the PDP but, it later turned out that the oil magnate never gave such any consideration.
