Ambode and Hamzat war: The bitter war between outgoing governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode and incoming Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Obafemi Hamzat, according to what www.e-nigeriang.com gathered, is even more bitter than ever.
According to Newdawnngr, a pointer to the cold war was the failure of the Governor Ambode to pay a courtesy visit to Hamzat, when he lost his father, Oba Olatunji Hamzat.
All leaders of APC in Lagos visited the family of late Oba Hamzat except the outgoing Governor of Lagos state.
Although, Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Dr. Idiat Adebule, who was the first Lagos State government official to cut ties with Ambode before the primary election in, which he (Abmbode) was denied a second term ticket and the Secretary to the State Government, Tunji Bello visited the Late Oba Hamzat family, but not on behalf of Ambode.
e-NIGERIA! gathered that both Tunji Bello and Adebule visited the family in their personal capacities not on behalf of state governor.
The family, however, in an advertisement appreciating those who stood with them during the death of late Oba Hamzat mentioned all leaders of APC in the state, but excluded Gov. Ambode from the list.
Our correspondent also observed that there was no letter of condolence from Gov. Ambode to the family of the late Oba Hamzat when he died.
The decision of Ambode to ignore late Hamzat ‘s family might not be unconnected with his failure to clinch second term ticket.
