Akiolu’s love for Lagos must have driven him to want the best qualified man for Lagos, even though what he announced publicly ought to have been left for the privacy of his palace. There is no faulting his love for Lagos.
Though the Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu, has spoken, the race has not ended. It has just begun. I have followed the reactions of many Lagosians to Oba Akiolu’s open endorsement of the Former Accountant General of Lagos state, Akinwunmi Ambode for the Governorship of Lagos. The alacrity and suddenness of his endorsement shocked many people. Many have criticized him for such brazenness and others are already plotting how to deal with him. There are also insinuations in many quarters that he is on an errand sort of. That there is a hand of Essau and the voice of Jacob, sorry, the voice of Akiolu. Again, Bola Tinubu is being fingered to be behind the message so brazenly delivered.
