Reactions have continued to trail Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s dramatic photo shoot with Bola Tinubu, the national leader of the All Progressives Party (APC), Nigeria’s ruling party.

Concise News had reported earlier that the Lagos state governor created a mild drama on Monday at the launch of ‘Africa Rise and Shine’, a book by Jim Ovia, chairman of Zenith Bank when he ran towards Tinubu for photographs.

We had also reported that dignitaries, including public officials, were invited to the podium to take photographs with the author at the event.

Initially, Ambode stood in between Ovia and Kolade but as photojournalists started taking shots, the Lagos governor jogged past the Zenith Bank chairman, Osinbajo to squeeze himself in between Tinubu and a woman on his estranged godfather’s left side.

The governor’s action elicited cheers, laughter and applause from those on the podium and many other guests.

But apparently displeased by the display of the governor, Nigerians took to Twitter to air their displeasures.
