Ambode trends as APC holds national convention

Akinwunmi Ambode

Former governor of Lagos State Akinwunmi Ambode is currently top of Twitter trends in Nigeria as the All Progressives Congress (APC) holds its much-awaited national convention on Saturday.

Mr Ambode had a public fallout with the leader of the APC Bola Tinubu, a strongman in Lagos politics and now presidential aspirant, in 2018 which ultimately cost him his second term.

The 58-year-old is constitutionally permitted to be in office for one more term of four years. His successor Babjide Sanwo-Olu had called on Lagosians to vote for continuity.

While Ambode has not said he would contest for the seat, his supporters have begun throwing his name around.
