Nigeria business mogul and chairman of Forte Oil, Femi Otedola, has been offered the PDP governorship ticket for Lagos State come 2019 and he has “accepted” the offer.
This news was broken today by Dele Momodu, the Publisher of Ovation magazine, through his Twitter handle @DeleMomodu. He said Mr. Otedola has personally confirmed his acceptance to contest the election under PDP to The Boss Newspaper.
Meanwhile, just yesterday, the incumbent Governor, Mr. Akinwumi Ambode, picked up the expression of interest and nomination forms for his party, All Progressive Congress, declaring his interest to contest for second term, saying because “there is still a lot more to be done”.
In a series of tweets on his Twitter handle today, Ambode announced his intention: “In the last three and half years, I have seen visible proof that we can achieve unbelievable things when we all come together. We achieved because you believed. But there is still a lot more to be done”
Governor Ambode urged Lagosians to again give him their support, concluding “I ask you to believe again and together, LET’S ACHIEVE MORE”.
