Its no longer news that the Lagos state governor Ambode will no longer be running for a second term following his defeat in the primaries couple of days ago.

What really made headlines wasn’t the fact that he lost, but on how he congratulated Sanwo-Olu  even after he went ahead with calling him out during his press conference. It came as a surprise to a lot of Lagosians and Nigerians at large following his decision.

According to a source, his decision was based on the fact that he wanted things to calm down since there is too much tension in the state;

”“He (Ambode) did not want the matter to get to that level; that is why he accepted the defeat to reduce the tension in the state and stop any panicky action by the party elders. He also wanted them to leave him in peace to complete all his projects,” the source said
