Punch reports that former governor of Lagos state and national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, on Sunday said that Governor Akinwunmi Ambode will no longer be removed from office as the executive and legislative have agreed to resolve the issues.
The State House of Assembly had threatened to impeach Ambode over alleged misconduct.
Punch reports that Tinubu spoke after a meeting on Sunday. He said:
In the last one week, there was noise about the conflict between the executive and the House of Assembly. It is of great concern to all of us and particularly, what Lagos represents across the country.
We have been able to look into the source of the various conflicts, which is not uncommon in politics. What is the genesis of those problems? We are one big family and as a big family, you will have some disagreement.
As leaders of the party, we have looked into that. We have looked into areas where we have to compromise, discuss, build the institutions and encourage them to really do what is right.
We have resolved that there would be no question of impeachment in Lagos State. Let the two arms of government communicate and continue to respect one another and build consensus and understanding. That is all about politics.
