Did Tinubu just shade Fashola?

  • Leading to the 2015 governorship election in Lagos, Fashola and Tinubu, political godson and godfather respectively supported different candidates at the APC primaries. 
  • Fashola supported Olasupo Sasore while Tinubu supported Akinwumi Ambode who eventually became governor.
  • It has been reported that their relationship has been icy.
  • At the unveiling of the statue and the commissioning of the Aboru-Abesan link bridge in Alimosho local government area named after him by Ambode's Administration, Tinubu said that Ambode has impressed him because his predecessor left a huge debt burden on Lagos but despite that Ambode has managed to perform very well.
Our take on the matter
  • Reading between the lines or 'hearing between the ears', Tinubu's statement implies that Fashola did not manage resources well and really put Lagos in debt. Isn't it?
  • Time will tell how this rumored rift between father and son would end.
