  • Adebule still has eight months to serve as Ambode's deputy before a new governor is sworn next May.

The Lagos State Deputy Governor, Dr Idiat Adebule, on Tuesday, ‘betrayed’ Governor Akinwunmi Ambode by declaring that she would vote for Babajide Sanwo-Olu during the party’s primary election on Tuesday.

Adebule, according to NAN, told newsmen at Ward A and D,  in Iba Local Council Development Area of Lagos where she participated in the governorship primary of the APC, that she would endorse the candidate chosen by the party.

“The party has chosen a man and it is that man that I will support and follow,” she said, as she arrived the ward with some of her aides carrying Sanwo-Olu’s posters and banners.

NAN further reports that at the ward, accreditation started at 10:36 am as party electoral officials arrived.

There was no formal announcement of the results as the accreditation was brief.

Adebule still has eight months to serve as Ambode’s deputy before a new governor is sworn next year May.
