New reports indicate that the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Forte Oil, Femi Otedola, is set to run for the governorship seat of Lagos state under the platform of Peoples Democratic Party.
According to Dele Momodu, the billionaire oil magnate may pick the PDP ticket anytime from now. ‘Lagos 2019 promises to be interesting. PDP offers Femi Otedola governorship ticket. He’s accepted and personally confirmed to The Boss newspaper’ Momodu tweeted.
Otedola, who has not initially shown any interest to run for the governorship office, at least not until now, probably because he wouldn’t want to run against his friend and brother, Ambode
The incumbent governor, Ambode has recently been under fire by a group loyal to APC national leader, Asiwaju Tinubu, saying he must be dethroned for a former commissioner in the state, Babajide Sanwoolu.
