Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. Femi Gbajabiamila, has hinted that incumbent Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State may get a second term ticket.

There have been speculations that Sanwo-Olu would be denied the second term ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) because of the treatment given to his predecessor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, in 2019.

Under the current democratic dispensation, Ambode is the only governor to have spent a single term as Lagos governor.

Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Mr Babatunde Fashola both spent two terms as governors.

But speaking in an interview on Channels TV, on Tuesday morning, Gbajabiamila said, “The fact that we had a one term Governor doesn’t mean it will be the same forever.”

Asked if he is interested in the position, Gbajabiamila, who is an inidigene of Lagos, said he is occupied with his assignment as the number four man in the country.

Responding to the question, he said, “That provokes a smile. No, I don’t have any such plan. I have a job I am doing right now. It is a tough job, very tough job. I don’t want any distraction. I am working as a Speaker of the House of Representatives with a lot of responsibilities on my shoulder right now.

“Any other thing is a distraction. As for Lagos State Governorship, I don’t talk about it. Why because the present Governor is doing a good job,” he said.
