A Special Governor's Advisory Committee (GAC) meeting was held on Sunday in marina, Lagos to resolve the conflict between Gov. Ambode and Lagos State House of Assembly.

Wasiu Esinlokun.

 Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the National leader of All Progressives Congress (APC) has said there is no impeachment against Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State.

 Tinubu made the declaration after a peace meeting brokered by the APC leadership in the State to end the rift between the Governor and lawmakers which was held at Lagos House, Marina.

The APC chieftain told newsmen that there is no longer a question of impeachment of the Lagos State Governor. He said it was gratifying to note that the conflict between the Governor and the members of the State Assembly had been amicably settled. Tinubu, who spoke on behalf of all the APC leaders in the State, said the executive and the legislative arms of government in the State had resolved to work together in the interest of the State.

 Asiwaju Tinubu, APC National Leader said

"We held a meeting on behalf of entire Lagosians. In the last one week or so, there has been some talk about a conflict between the Executive and the Legislature in Lagos. This is of great concern to us. We looked at the source of the conflict, which is normal in a democracy, and that is why there are also conflict-resolution mechanisms. 

We examined the grievances on both sides. As leaders, we also looked into areas where there has to be compromise. In order to build institutions and encourage consensus building, we have to do what is right. There is no impeachment. Let there be more communication and consensus-building and understanding. All these are inbuilt in the democratic system. 

 "We thank the Speaker and the leadership of the House. We thank the Governor and the Deputy Governor. They have all demonstrated respect for the party leadership in Lagos. You know when Lagos sneezes, other areas catch cold. We are happy that we are able to resolve the conflict and things will start moving well going forward."

 Also speaking, a party chieftain, Prince Tajudeen Olusi corroborated Tinubu’s position, and expressed optimism that the House would soon meet to resolve other grey areas.
