Okupe predicts Ambode will govern Lagos again
A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Doyin Okupe, has said the immediate past Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, will come back to govern the state again.
Okupe, who served with former President Goodluck Jonathan, said the recent lesson learnt by Ambode will help him to bounce back to govern the state once again.
He said though he and Ambode were neither friends nor foes, he was convinced that the odd ps will still favour the former governor to bounce back from his errors.
Okupe who spoke via his Twitter handle on Sunday said, “Former Governor Ambode is not my friend.

“I called him but he never once picked my call.
“Yet I sincerely believe he is an unsung Hero. An extraordinary, dutiful and diligent performer.
“He may be a bad politician, I believe he has learnt his lesson. Ambode will still rule Lagos again, if the Lord tarries.”
