Femi Otedola throws hat into the ring – Ajibade Samson

Call him a chip of the old block. You might be right to a large extent even though he appears decent when it comes to partisan politics. But for billionaire Femi Otedola, he seems ready to tow his late dad and former governor of Lagos state, Sir Michael Otedola s path as a politician. The affable money bag stunned not a few last week when he decided to release a statement throwing his weight behind the re-election of Lagos state governor Akinwunmi Ambode, charging him to “please carry go”  because he has done overwhelmingly well. To the unfamiliar that is atypical of Otedola

However to those close to the Odorangushin, Epe born oil tycoon, he might just been whetting his rumored ambitious to join those mounting soap box

GLITTERS ONLINE on ground learn t that the chairman of  Forte Oil might likely be targeting 2023 as a result of the age-long tremendous pressure mounted on him by some influential people to run for the seat of governor while some might be bordered that Otedola is from Lagos East same as Ambodeand the idea might be dead on arrival. Sources said that can t be a problem as Otedola has always been a voter in the Lagos central. The billionaire has lived in all most all part of Lagos as he spent his formative years in Surulere, moved to Ikeja GRA and when he joined the billionaire class the 55-year old mogul relocated to Ikoyi

But the question on many people lips now is would Otedola tow his father steps who against the odd won the election as Lagos state governor in 1993 under the umbrella of National Republic Convection (NRC0 beating the more favored candidate of Social Democratic Party (   SDP) in an election that will go down in Lagos history as most shocking going by the way he was voted into power
