Former Lagos State governor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has disclosed that ex-President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan failed to defeat Governor Akinwuni Ambode of Lagos State despite spending a lot of money during the 2015 election.
Tinubu who is widely known as the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) stated this on Wednesday, during a stakeholders’ meeting at the party’s secretariat in Ogba.
In attendance were Gov. Ambode, Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, and the party Chairman, Oladele Ajomale, among others.
Tinubu said Jonathan that moved to take over the state by all means, including spending huge cash, but the APC members resolutely stood their ground and ensured the victory of the party.
The former governor therefore thanked party members for standing by Ambode and the APC during the gubernatorial election.
