Tinubu at Loggerheads with Aregbesola Over 2023 Presidential Ambition
All political groups within the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos have been dissolved.
The Mandate Group and the Justice Group, the two most powerful groups, will no longer exist, according to the communique issued by the party leaders in the state after a meeting on Tuesday.
Bola Tinubu, a national leader of the APC, and Rauf Aregbesola, his associate, have been in a cold war.
Aregbesola was accused of re-launching political groups in the state without the knowledge of Tinubu, who is regarded as the political leader.
There are insinuations that Aregbesola, former governor of Osun state, is interested in running for president in 2023 — an ambition that may pit him against Tinubu, who is also believed to be warming up.
