JUST IN!!! Defection: PDP Set to Receive Lagos Gov, Ambode Next Week

Barring last minutes change of plans, the embattled Governor of Lagos state may be switching over to The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP latest by next week.


Ambode, who is facing the battle of his life with his godfather, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who is the leader of the party, is reportedly exploring all possible options should the mediation from party elders fail.


IGBERE TV had reported that 57 Lagos state LGA Chairman who are loyal to Tinubu few days ago endorsed Jide, a hardcore Tinubu loyalist, as the next governor of the state, contrary to the alleged agreement between Ambode and Tinubu to support Ambode’s second term ambition.



IGBERE TV sources within PDP leadership has informed us that plans are at the concluding stages to receive Ambod in the party next week.

Recall that PDP had on Tuesday extended the deadline for the sales and submission of its Nomination forms by 7 days. Though the party did not reveal the reason for the extension, our source said: “Ambode was the cause, he (Ambode) requested for more time to explore all possible avenues for reconciliation within the APC before making the switch. All things being equal, he will be received in our party next week, I dont see how he is going to reconcile with Tinubu”.


Governor Ambode today submitted his APC nomination form, despite alleged warning from ‘the top’ against the move.


Meanwhile, IGBERE TV reported few minutes ago that the APC leader, Tinubu has been invited to the Villa by President Buhari and both had a closed door meeting, which insiders said will hopefully bring a lasting solution to the disagreement.
