PDP Ready To Receive Ambode If He Leaves APC

PDP Shows Open Arms To Governor Ambode

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has declared readiness to accept Lagos Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode if he decides to dump the All Progressive Congress, APC.

This is as indications have risen that APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has sidelined Ambode for another candidate  Jide Sanwo-Olu within the APC, thereby threatening the Governor’s chance of second term in office.

The Publicity Secretary of the PDP in Lagos, Taofik Gani, said, “I cannot confirm if Mr Femi Otedola has joined us or has been given a nomination form to contest.

“Although, strong leaders behind his team are working towards that, but it is not something that is official yet.

“But the Lagos PDP will be happy to welcome Femi Otedola who is an established businessman. He will definitely be a political asset for us as we want to win in 2019.

“Also, we are ready to accommodate anybody as long as that person is going to add to our interest and that is me confirming to you that we will readily welcome Governor Ambode if he is sent packing by the APC.

“What I can tell you now is that the political structure of the PDP is bigger than what the APC has. The PDP has been at the national level for 16 years; even though APC has been controlling Lagos, we do have our numbers and structures. With the structure we have, if we have somebody like Ambode, it will be a 100 per cent victory.”
