On Tuesday, Akinwunmi Ambode, the immediate past governor of Lagos State, returned to tweeting on Twitter for the first time after almost two years of absence.


The former Governor has been away from Twitter for one year and 10 months.


The last time Ambode tweeted was May 28, 2019, when he handed over to the current Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

That day, the former governor tweeted: “To the Glory of God, I have just handed over the reins of government in Lagos State to His Excellency, Mr. Babajide Sanwoolu, after a rewarding 4-year experience.”

But on Tuesday, March 23, Ambode broke almost two years absence and tweeted.

The tweet came after his appointment as a member of the 61 APC Contact and Strategy Committee by APC Caretaker Committee Chairman, Mai Mala Buni.

The members were inaugurated on Tuesday.

In a tweet on Tuesday, Ambode said: “Along with other notable and distinguished colleagues, I was today selected by our party, the All Progressives Congress, to be a member of the Contact and Strategy Committee.

“This is a call to serve the Party and more importantly, our nation.”

In 2019, Ambode lost in gubernatorial primary election to Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu, denying him an opportunity to run for second term. He eventually supported Babajide Sanwo-Olu campaign that brought about smooth transition in the state.
