"Nobody will ever convince me that Ambode did not do well in Lagos. He did well, but got it wrong in the area of political character.

Character was his own problem. And, in democracy, you don't run your government as if you have the right to do it alone and the way you like, especially when it comes to the issue of dealing with people of your political constituency.

Nobody ever did it the way he ran it and ever gets away with it in democracy.

Ambode's attitude in government was what killed his political prospects in Nigeria or else, he would have also been one of the lucky ministers sworn in today in Nigeria.

Ambode did well for Lagos, but it was his attitude in government which brought him down.

That attitude was bad, crude and peculiar.

This should be a lesson to all of us.

I have always said it, education, destiny, beauty, mental brilliance, luck and the grace of God can always take you up there, but it does not take character any moment to bring you down, if you do not know how to behave in it.

Left to President Muhammadu Buhari, he would have been brought in again to serve as a minister in his government, but politics won't ever allow a man with such a peculiarly rude, arrogant and self-centered social attitude to continue to soar with it.

What Ambode is going through today, is not the making of anybody, but his own  political character, when he was lucky to govern Lagos State as its governor.

It is the same people, who brought him out from the blues to that place of greatness, who are standing in his way today.

In democracy, politics is the king, not the electioneering or the governance.

This should also be a big lesson to the new helms man, 'Gomina' SanwoOlu, as well"
