2023: Lagosians Will Decide Your Fate Not GAC, Reactions Trail Sanwo-Olu’s Second Term Bid



By Augustine Akhilomen

…Say EndSARS Saga Will Affect Gov’s Re-Election

Nigerians have described the nod given by the Governance Advisory Council on Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s second term ambition as a huge mistake.

Recall that on Monday, GAC, the apex decision making body within the state ruling political class of the All Progressives Congress (APC), agreed and gave the approval for the second term at its meeting held Monday afternoon at State House, Marina.

There have been wide speculations among the political class, market leaders, as well as captains of industries in the state, especially members of the APC, on whether the incumbent governor, Sanwo-Olu, will get a second term.

With GAC’s approval, the governor at any moment will declare his intention to run for reelection in 2023.

However, GAC’s declaration has generated reactions from Nigerians on social media as they insisted that Lagosians will decide Sanwo-Olu’s fate in 2023.

They also noted that the EndSARS saga will affect and truncate his reelection bid as Lagosians are still living fresh with the horrific incident.

@LawalSaheed4us -It’s okay but he should know that GAC votes may not be more than 20, that’s if they even vote. Residents of Lagos will determine who will be governor in 2023 not GAC.

@karrimolusegun· -And this is the system of governance some people are advocating for at the Centre ,May Nigeria never be governed like Lagos

@Yak32181502 -Apc stands a chance of loosing lagos if they dare it. If we go by comparing Sanwo eko performance with that of Akinwunmi Ambode my friend you don’t deserve it at all.

@oladipokunle3 -He can get support for second term but general poll would determine whether he continues or not.

@callvikky -Can’t point to one major thing this guy did in lagos. Him just dey follow him papa up and down

@Yak32181502 -Honestly you are absolutely right.he did nothing.

@ChrisAdeyemi2 -Round one: GAC is not the masses who voted for him in the first place. Again #EndSARS saga may affect his reelection if some known abnormalities are not corrected now.

@Mrcells -His follow follow has finally paid off! We know his second tenure will be worse compared to his first so brace up Lagosians…

@EwugaJohnson -Putting this man again as Lagos State governor na huge mistake oo

@OkomisoJoe -Why won’t he? He’s doing their bidding, we Lagosians will decide our future come 2023.

@calldemy4u -In the last 3 weeks, the way he was doing errand boy around BAT following him about like protocol officer, is more than enough to earn him second term ticket. GAC determines everything that happen in Lagos. They kicked Ambode out

@The_humanist11 -Did Lagosians think what is happening in Lagos is a democracy? GAC is Tinubu & Tinubu is GAC
Lagos is just a family republic. The same shit he wants to replicate at the Federal level. No wonder Sanwo-Olu hv been following him around like a fly that saw poo.

How Funke Akindele’s Broken Marriage May Affect Her Political Ambition



It is no longer news that Funke Akindele Bello and her husband, Abdulrasheed Bello, known as JJC Skilz, have parted ways over irreconcilable differences.

According to the statement released earlier this morning by JJC Skillz, he and his wife are no longer together because she had refused to settle their differences amicably even after putting on a lovely front at the 2022 Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA).

“Dear Friends and family I need to let you know that Funke and I have separated. While it lasted we shared a lot of things together and have created 2 beautiful children. The last two years have been extremely difficult for us. I know I have tried my best to fix things but I believe it is beyond repair now. 3 months ago and at Funkes insistence I moved out of the house and apart from AMVCA have not been able to get Funke to sit down in an amicable manner to discuss the future of our relationship. I’m making this announcement so that the public is clear that we both are pursuing separate lives. We still have issues that need to be addressed such as the custody and wellbeing of our children which is paramount as well as business interests which need to be disentangled but I have no doubt that these will be resolved one way or the other

Mr Abdul Bello”

Numerous reports trailing this development have alleged both sides of been faulty in their marriage breakup saga.

Different online reports cited infidelity, ego and mismanagement of funds as the central theme of Funke Akindele and JJC Skillz’s separation.

Recall that Funke Akindele had refused to speak concerning the update released by her husband on social media. However, the actress and mother of two had maintained her husband’s surname on her Instagram profile.

One of the concerns raised by Funke Akindele’s fans was her budding political ambition.

It is unclear if her broken marriage will affect her selection as the deputy governor of Lagos state for the upcoming general elections.

Also the Jenifa’s Diary crooner was nominated alongside four others as deputy governors for the Peoples Democratic Party gubernatorial candidate for the upcoming Lagos State elections.

The shortlisted names include Funke Akindele, popularly known as Jenifa; former governorship aspirant Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour; former Senatorial candidate for Lagos East, Yeye Shobajo, another governorship aspirant, David Kolawole Vaughan known as DAKOVA, and Engr. Teslim Balogun.

At the time of this report, Funke Akindele has yet to disclose or divulge any news regarding her marriage or political ambition.

Fresh PDP crisis: Why Wike, Ortom Shouldn’t Be Attacked, Omokri Speaks



A former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, on Thursday said “nobody in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), should disparage” Governors Nyesom Wike and Samuel Ortom.

Recall that according to Omokri, both men “laboured to build” the PDP.

“Stooping to conquer is not weakness. Nobody in the PDP should disparage Wike or Ortom. They should be appealed to and listened to. The PDP ought to seek to understand them. And then to accommodate them. When people who labour to build get angry, you embrace them!” Omokri said via a Twitter post.

The opposition party went into another round of crisis after its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, picked Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State as his running mate for the 2023 elections.

The development has degenerated into a full-blown disagreement among party leaders with Ortom, the Governor of Benue State, asking Atiku to ‘appease’ Wike, Rivers State governor, who came second in the presidential primary election in May.

In a similar vein, Ayodele Fayose, a former Governor of Ekiti State, and presidential aspirant, also dumped Atiku, and expressed his support for a Southern candidate, increasing speculations that he’ll throw his weight behind the candidature of Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
