Recall that Ambode was in March appointed into the All Progressives Congress’ contact and strategy committee to reportedly weaken the presidential ambition of the National Leader of the party, Bola Tinubu in 2023, according to a top source in the party.
According to DailyTrust, Ambode was named in the committee to reduce the influence of the former Governor of Lagos in the South-West as the party brings in more politicians who are perceived to be opposed to Tinubu.
Recall that Ambode’s second term bid was truncated by Tinubu who supported the President Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu to take over in 2019.
The development had seen Ambode stay away from politics in Lagos State and the federal level until his appointment on Tuesday.
Aside from Ambode, the party also handed positions to big politicians like a former deputy governor of Osun State, Iyiola Omisore; a former governor of Ogun State, Gbenga Daniel, and former Speaker Bankole, some others in the South-West.
