The loyalists and fans of the immediate past Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, have vowed to fight back after losing out on the ministerial list.

Prior to the release of the list, the former governor was highly favoured by President Muhammadu Buhari to be nominated among other candidates but the powers that be who limited him to a single term in office also ensured his name was removed from the list.

To, however, give Ambode a political lifeline to remain relevant in Lagos politics, his handlers have regrouped to fight for him.

According to informed sources, the office of the First Lady, Aisha Buhari, has been approached to get the president’s nod to pacify the former governor after the humiliation meted out to him by his political godfather and benefactor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
