Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, on Wednesday debunked claims that he and National Leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, are not in good terms.

Ambode made the clarification in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary (CPS) Mr Habib Aruna, in Lagos.

He said, “I want you to know that there is no fight anywhere. The National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and my good self, we are not in any fight; we are not in any controversy.”

“We are praying to God that the best is yet to come and the best will be what Lagos State deserves and I want you to just continue with your prayers that at this time, God will show His hand and make sure that everything that is of blessing to Lagos State and also blessing of Epe will come to pass.”

The statement further quoted Ambode telling party faithful in Epe, Lagos State,   “We have just concluded our delegates’ election in Epe Local Government and by consensus, we have picked our three delegates who will be going to the National Convention come October 6 for the presidential direct primaries and the convention for all other people,” he was quoted as saying.

“I want to say a very big thank you to all our delegates who are present here; I want to say a big thank you to all our leaders who have also supported us to make sure that this event has come and is done very successfully.

“I want to reiterate once again that our party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), remains the party to beat; we are the party at the national level and we are going to remain the party in the state.”
