That Ambode did one term does not mean Sanwo-Olu must do just one term – Gbajabiamila

Sanwo-Olu and Ambode

Speaker of the House of Assembly, Femi Gbajabiamila, has expressed possibility for a second term for Lagpos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Sanwo-Olu’s predecessor, Akinwunmi Ambode, was denied this by the political establishment of the All Progressives Congress.

There has also been rumurs that the one-term stroke may have become the joker in the state where Asiwaju Bola Tinubu holds the ace.

Some even claim that there is an agreemnent to that effect.

But speaking while on a Channels TV programme on Tuesday, Gbajabiamila said the Ambode treatment need not be meted out to Sanwo-Olu.

He said this while noting that he has o mind on the 2023 governorship election in the state.

“I think the APC has all it takes and will still do well in the next election,” he said.

When asked whether he has any plan to become the Governor of Lagos State in the next election, Gbajabiamila said, “No, I don’t have any such plan; I have no immediate plan, I have a job that I am doing now, a very tough job, sometimes the most difficult job but people don’t understand.

“I don’t want distractions. I am working as the Speaker of the House of Representatives with a lot of responsibilities on my shoulders right now, any other thing will be a distraction.

“As for Lagos State Governorship, not even thought about it and why? The present governor of Lagos State is doing a good job.

“The fact that we had a one-term governor at one time does not mean it is going to be the same. The governor is doing a good job under the circumstances – these are difficult times in the last two years and he’s come out well.

“We’ll see what the future holds for everybody…we leave everything in the hands of the person that decides the future for everybody.”
