Lagos 2019: Business mogul, Femi Otedola reportedly accepts to run under PDP

Few months after billionaire business mogul, Femi Otedola was pictured riding in danfo commercial bus on the Lagos Mainland, recent indications have it that he has accepted an offer to run in the forthcoming elections under the umbrella of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

According to a tweet by popular journalist, Dele Momodu, the Forte Oil boss has accepted an offer from the PDP to run for office in the forthcoming general elections.

In the tweet, Momodu said; “Breaking news: Lagos 2019 promises to be interesting. PDP offers Femi Otedola governorship ticket. He’s accepted and personally confirmed to The Boss newspaper.”

The news is, however, coming just after Femi Otedola recently endorsed Governor Ambode to run for office for a second term.

Meanwhile, there are indications that the ambition of Governor Ambode may have suffered a setback as the state leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have anointed another candidate to run for office.

More details later.
