The Governance Advisory Council (GAC) and other APC chieftains have waded into the raging feud between Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and the Lagos State House of Assembly.
The State Assembly had on 23 August, 2023, rejected 17 of the 39 cabinet nominees forwarded to it by Sanwo-Olu for screening and confirmation.
The rejection caused serious turbulence in the state as many people attributed the Assembly‘s action to a battle between its Speaker, Mudashiru Obasa and Sanwo-Olu.
Obasa’s speakership was rumored not supported by Sanwo-Olu, as he was said to have supported another lawmaker, Abiodun Tobun.
A few days ago, Obasa, during the sitting of the House said the lawmakers would not succumb to intimidation by anybody over its action in axing Sanwo-Olu’s nominees.
But on Wednesday, the GAC and top All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftains in Lagos met with Sanwo-Olu and Obasa at the State House, Marina to resolve the matter.
Details of the meeting have not been made known to the public, but it might not be unconnected with the feud between the executive and the legislature.
At the meeting were GAC members such as Cardinal Odunmbaku; Otunba Henry Ajomale; former Deputy Governor, Mrs Sarah Sosan; former Deputy Governor, Princess Adejoke Orelope-Adefulire and Dr Abayomi Finnih.
There was also the APC chairman in Lagos, Cornelius Ojelabi; former Lagos APC chairman, Henry Ajomale, among others.
Obasa and Sanwo-Olu, at the end of the closed-door meeting, took photographs with the GAC members and other APC chieftains.
