2nd Term: More worries for Ambode, as Tinubu says "no guber aspirant will be imposed"

Rosana Olowu, Lagos.

- He was quoted to have told the general overseer of Redeemed Christian Church, Pastor Enoch Adeboye that his hands were tied on Ambode's second term bid

Tinubu in the text message which was going viral on twitter told Pastor Adeboye that: “Sir, people have been accusing me of imposition.

"They say I imposed candidates at will. That’s why I said all aspirants including the governor to get to the field and test their popularity among the people in an open contest of direct primaries.

“Sir, my hands are tied on his matter, I cannot ask those who have picked the expression of interest and nomination forms to withdraw or not contest. That will be greatly unfair. We will ensure a level-playing ground for all the governorship aspirants including the incumbent governor.”

Osun Daily reports that, a source close to Tinubu, who chose to be anonymous because he was not authorised to speak on the matter, confirmed that there was a conversation between the APC leader and Pastor Adeboye on Ambode’s second term.
