As mixed reactions continued to trail the purported frosty relationship between the former governors of Lagos State, Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, erstwhile Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has advised Fashola to mend fences with his former boss, or prepare for a long war of attrition, Vanguard reports.

Fani-Kayode, yesterday, on his Facebook page, said: “Things are getting messier by the day. My advice to Tunde Fashola is to go and make peace with his benefactor, Bola Tinubu, before it is too late. Other than that, he should prepare for a long war of attrition which may ultimately end in the destruction of them both.”

It will be recalled that shortly after the last general elections, on May 7, the Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu, had confirmed that he helped settled a quarrel between the former governors.

However, speculations that all was not well between Asiwaju Tinubu and Fashola came to fore Tuesday, last week,  when the mainstream of the state’s political class, abstained from the launch of three books on Fashola’s stewardship entitled: “The Great Leap,” “In Bold Print” and “The Lagos Blow Dawn” authored by Hakeem Bello, at the MUSON Centre, Onikan, Lagos. Governor Akinwunmi Ambode and Asiwaju Tinubu were not present at the books presentation.

Although, represented by a former Commissioner of Education in the state, Prof. Tunde Samuel, Asiwaju Tinubu, lauded Fashola for his success in office saying; “We are happy about your success in office and we believe the sky is your limit.”
