National leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Sunday finally put the impeachment saga which had dominated the polity in the last one week in Lagos State to rest, declaring that there is no longer a question of impeachment of the State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode.

Speaking after a peace meeting brokered by the APC leadership in the State to end the rift between the Governor and lawmakers which was held at Lagos House, Marina, Tinubu said it was gratifying to note that the conflict between the Governor and the members of the State Assembly had been amicably settled.

Tinubu, who spoke on behalf of all the APC leaders in the State, said the executive and the legislative arms of government in the State had resolved to work together in the interest of the State.

“We held a meeting on behalf of Lagos, the entire Lagosians, our party – APC leadership. In the last one week, there has been noise about the conflict between the executive and the State Assembly. It is of great concern to all of us and particularly what Lagos represents across the country.

“We have been able to look into the source of various conflicts which is not uncommon in politics; what is the genesis of those problems? We are one big family and as a big family, you will have some rumples, you will have some disagreement. As leaders of the party, we have looked into that; we have looked into areas where we have to compromise, discuss and build the institutions, encourage the institutions to really do what is right.

That is all about politics. Conflict and conflict resolution mechanism is inbuilt in any political system unless leaders are lacking in their responsibilities,” Tinubu said.

He thanked the Governor, his deputy, Dr Idiat Adebule and the leadership of the House for agreeing to the peaceful resolution of the conflict, saying it was.
