The National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has been called out to stop playing god over the rumoured ministerial appointment of immediate past governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode into the yet-to-be constituted cabinet of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Tinubu was slammed by the Save Lagos Group (SLG) which condemned a purported statement by Tinubu that he would resign his membership of the APC if President Buhari nominates Ambode as ministerial nominee from the state.

Comrade Adeniyi, Alimi Sulaiman, the SLG’s Convener in a statement on Tuesday stated that “Tinubu has turned himself to Alpha and Omega of the State nay Nigeria politics, forgetting that only God gives and takes power and no human being can act like God.”

SLG also maintained that “all the ideas of Tinubu in the political armament of the State and Nigeria was parochial and self serving.

“Ambode is more qualified than Tinubu because Ambode is educationally qualified to hold any position including Minister in the country,because he doesn’t have ‘Chicagogate’ on his educational qualification like Mr. Godfatherism.”
