Mr Dumo Lulu-Briggs, a gubernatorial aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers, has in an interview on Thursday in Port Harcourt assured the people of his readiness to make agriculture and tourism the highest revenue earner for the state if voted into power.

He said that there was need for the state to diversify its economy to enable it compete effectively with other strong economies.

Lulu-Briggs said that experts had postulated that agriculture and tourism if well harnessed would generate even more revenue than oil and gas which was currently the main economic stay of the state.

In the same vain, Lulu-Briggs urged the state leadership of the party to shun interference with the internal democratic process by ensuring synergy among aspirants.

 

He said that the direct primaries system if adopted by the state would protect the collective interest of members better than the earlier adopted indirect primaries.

A last-minute effort by the wife of the Lagos State Governor, Bolanle Ambode, to save her husband’s job was said to have hit a brick wall on Tuesday.

It was gathered that Bolanle, who followed Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to Osun State on Monday for the Tuesday’s All Progressives Congress’ mega rally for the state governorship candidate, Gboyega Oyetola, waylaid the National Leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and tried to pacify him to change his mind. “At a point, she became emotional despite the fact that many party leaders were there. But Asiwaju (Tinubu) did not give her the answer she desired.

He merely treated her with courtesy,” one of the sources said. The governor and Tinubu have been in the news in the past few days over the second term bid of Ambode.Tinubu had refused to back Ambode’s second term ambition despite pleas by notable people in the state and the country.Instead, had backed Babajide Sanwo-Olu, who obtained his form last Tuesday.The chairmen of the 57 councils had also declared support for Sanwo-Olu.

 

Sawo-Olu, a former commissioner in the state on Sunday formally declared his intention to vie for the Lagos State governorship ticket of the APC, promising to restore the glory of the state meanwhile, sources said the Mandate group had started wooing another aspirant on the APC platform, Dr Obafemi Hamzat.It was gathered that Tinubu’s men wanted Hamzat, who is from the Lagos East like Ambode, to become the deputy governor with a promise that he would supervise a ministry and also nominate two commissioners into the cabinet. Hamzat campaign team could not be reached on Tuesday for comment.
