Oba Okiolu Of Lagos Warns Other Aspirants Not To Contest Against Ambode In 2019


Why must Oba of Lagos be very controversial every time and always aligning to a political party without reservation. Can someone tell him he is the Oba of Lagos and as such should foster togetherness and offer everybody equal opportunity. At least if he doesn't believe in equal opportunity, he should appear to foster it. Overtly displaying his lack of understanding in Machiavellian political adventures is absurd. 

Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, has advised anyone hoping to be Governor of the State, not to contest against the incumbent Governor, Akinwumi Ambode, in the 2019 election. He stated this on Thursday at the 21st convocation of Lagos State University (LASU). He declared that Ambode and his deputy Oluranti Adebule, will govern Lagos for the next six years.

He warned that anyone who decided to campaign, would only be wasting money. “Few days ago, one of the aspirants greeted me. After greeting, he alleged that I halted his ambition. No one should come out in 2019 and declare his ambition,” he said.

“The only way to avoid not wasting their money is to support Ambode and his deputy to rule Lagos for the next six years. That was why about nine months to the 2015 governorship election, I said Ambode would be the next governor whether they vote or not.

“But all of them doubted me. I often pray before and after leaving the bed. That is one of few things I learnt from the late father of Prof. Peter Oke-Bukola, who served as my cadet officer then. Even though he was much older than I am, he was very humble.

“The prayer has helped me a lot. The state of Nigeria indicates the type of police it gets. As a police officer, I served for 32 years. That is why I can confidently say I never collected money from anyone before performing my duties as a law enforcement officer”, he said.
