This declaration is coming even after it was reported that the National Working Committee of the party had cancelled the exercise.
It was earlier stated in LINJUST that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the National leader of the APC said that Lagos state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode has done well in office but he has not been a good party man.
