The Special Assistant on New Media to Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, Lere Olayinka feels the reported fight between Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Akinwunmi Ambode might be a political marketing strategy ahead of the 2019 elections.
Olayinka wrote on his verified Twitter handle: “What if this Ambode/Tinubu matter is a Political Marketing Strategy?
“Just using my brain ni o. #Hissssssssh.”
Akinwunmi Ambode’s pursuit to run for the Lagos State governorship seat again in 2019 is now tangled as his estranged godfather, Ahmed Bola Tinubu have pledged support for Jide Sanyaolu Sanwonolu.

The council chairmen are the most influential grassroots mobilisers under the direct primary system adopted by APC, to pick governorship candidates.
