Babatunde Fashola And Senator Bola Tinubu At War


Two former Governors of Lagos state, Senator Bola
Ahmed Tinubu and Mr Babatunde Fashola are poised for
a confrontation as the crisis between the duo deepened
on Friday following reports that their loyalists have
drawn up battle plans, even as stakeholders in both the
All Progressives Congress (APC) and Lagos State are
said to have waded in, calling for a truce.
According to a former member of the Lagos State
Executive Council, “some elders are planning a peace
meeting between the duo.”
Information gathered also revealed that forces loyal to
Tinubu felt incensed by the statement issued by
Fashola on Thursday in which he insinuated that
corruption allegations were being pinned on him by
those opposed to his getting a federal appointment, a
veiled reference to Tinubu and the incumbent governor,
Akinwumi Ambode.
“The coming days will be interesting,” an aide to a
chieftain of the APC close to both leaders said.
While the Tinubu camp is said to have vowed to fight
on, “ to teach the former governor a lesson,” it was
learnt that the Fashola side “is determined to ensure
that his integrity is not tainted by those who are jealous
of his ascendancy in the polity.”
Both sides, however, on Friday refrained from taking
direct shots at each other.
