The Lagos State Deputy Governor, Dr Idiat Adebule on Tuesday abandoned Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to encourage Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu in the two-horse race to pick the ticket to represent the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2019 governorship election.

Adebule told newsmen at Ward A and D, in Iba Local Council Development Area of Lagos where she engaged in the governorship primary of the APC, that she would endorse the candidate.

“The party has selected a man and it is that man that I will follow and support,” she said

When the governor arrived at the ward, a number of her aides came with the banners and posters of Sanwo-Olu.

At the ward, certification started at roughly 10.36 a. party electoral officials arrived.
There was no formal statement of the results since the certification was brief.

Party members at the venue started singing the praises of Sanwo-Olu.
