LAGOS State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode, disclosed that Babajide Sanwo-Olu, who is being backed by the All Progressives Congress national leader, Bola Tinub, and some special interests in the state, has psychiatric issues and is not well.
Ambode, who said this at a press conference in Lagos, on Sunday afternoon then described Sanwo-Olu as an unfit and improper candidate for the position of Lagos governor.
The incumbent believed to have the support of Aso Rock then threw in the bombshell: his only rival in the primary, Babajide Sanwo-Olu was once arrested in the United States for spending fake dollars in a nightclub.
“He has been arrested for spending fake US dollars in an American nightclub. He lacks competency and health-wise, he has gone through mental rehabilitation,” Ambode revealed.
The governor further disclosed that Sanwo-Olu served time in US prisons in connection with a string of counterfeit bill-passing incidents in the country.
The governor, however, said he is ready for free and fair primary elections, but he warned party thugs to keep away from the wards.
He said he would ensure security at all the wards.
The governor said he is under no illusion about the battle ahead in the APC primary for governor, but said “We shall overcome.”
