“Unfortunately this endorsement violated a standing albeit unwritten rule on rotational governance between Christians and Muslims in Lagos State,” Akintola said.

“It is on record that ex-Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, a , spent four years in office and another Christian, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, was brought in ostensibly to complete the Christians’ two terms which expires by May 2023 when a Muslim, ceteris paribus, is to take over the reins of office.
