Akinwunmi Ambode, governor of Lagos state, and Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), were the cynosure of all eyes  at the national convention of the ruling party in Abuja on Saturday. The duo not only walked into the Eagle Square, venue of the convention, hand-in-hand, they both sat together to the admiration of party members. Sanwo-Olu had challenged Ambode in the race to secure the ticket of the party for the 2019 governorship election. With 970,851 votes, Sanwo-Olu defeated Ambode who secured 72,901 votes. The governor accepted his loss and thanked the winner. The former banker had the backing of Bola Tinubu, national leader of the party, and the state party excos as the candidate of the party over the incumbent governor. This led into a bitter campaign between the two.
