Crises brew in Lagos APC

Crisis is brewing in the Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress over the role the immediate past Osun State Governor, Mr Rauf Aregebsola, is playing in the compilation of names of political appointees that will form the cabinet of the Governor-elect, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
The crisis, according to sources, is between two main groups within the ruling APC, in the state, the Mandate Group and the Governor’s Advisory Council.
The National Leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, had delegated Aregbesola to compile the list of politicians, who would work as Sanwo-Olu’s aides.
It was learnt that the former Osun State governor had, as a first step, asked Sanwo-Olu to disband his campaign team and await the list of members of the transition committee.
The Director-General of Sanwo-Olu Campaign Team, Mr Tayo Ayinde, was said to have immediately complied with the directive on behalf of the governor-elect.
The transition committee will interface with the incumbent Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s transition team.
Sanwo-Olu will be inaugurated as the new Lagos State Governor on May 29.
Aregbesola has reportedly compiled 40 names of those that would be the new governor’s aides from the Mandate Group alone.
Members of the GAC are said to be displeased with this development and had reportedly challenged the former Osun State governor.
The GAC, sources said, directed a leader of the party, Mr Tajudeen Olusi, to compile another list which would accommodate the aggrieved members of the group who they claimed played the lead role in the emergence of Sanwo-Olu.
