Ambode declines use of Marina official residence over fears of spiritual booby trap
Last week the new Governor of Lagos state Ambode announced that he will not be moving into the Marina official residence but opting for the Ikeja option, which was used last by the former Governor Tinubu during his tenure.However sources close to the Governor have disclosed that beyond the reasons cited in public,the main reason was because the Governor's people had cautioned him to do both a physical security sweep,but most importantly a spiritual cleansing and sanctification of the whole place.
This developement is not unconnected with the air of mistrust swirling over his relationship with the former Governor Fashola,especially due to the manner of his choice and ensuing controversy.It was an open secret amongst the party hierachy that, Fashola only capitulated to his former boss Asiwaju Tinubu's choice of Ambode to protect the party legacy and his own,including a secure platform for future Political engagement on the National front,with this developement however which Fashola and his supporters see as a public snub, it is only a matter of time before the tenuous relationship between Governor Ambode,former Governor Fashola and the Asiwaju Tinubu ruptures with obvious conscequences as seen in similar scenarios in Ekiti,Oyo,Anambra,Rivers amongst others.
