Detractors have been trying to cause bad blood, using Ambode’s defeat for the 2019 governorship candidacy as bait.

Ambode lost his bid for second tenure to Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu in a direct primary conducted by their party, All Progressives Congress (APC) last week.

In what apparently surprised opposition and mischief makers, Ambode accepted the result of the exercise and pledged to work with the winner and the party.

His defeat in the primary seems not to have dampened his political enthusiasm as he cheerfully participated actively in the convention aligning with all his party members from the Lagos.
