The development means Otedola would be running in 2019 against Governor Akinwunmi Ambode and other aspirants.
Concise News had report yesterday that Governor Ambode picked his nomination form for 2019 election in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.
Meanwhile, as at the time of filing this report, Otedola was yet to issue a statement regarding Momodu’s claims.
