However, it is not known which political party the governor is planning to move into.

Recall that Ambode defeated his close rival, Jimi Agbaje of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the 2015 governorship race in the state.

His victory saw the APC retaining the state as he succeeded former governor Babatunde Fashola of the same party who ruled the state for 8 years.
