Lagos Local Government Chairman Polls: PDP Won’t Win A Single A Single Seat – Tinubu
The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Sen. Bola Tinubu, on Wednesday said that the Peoples Democratic Party would not record any win in the forthcoming council polls in Lagos State.
Tinubu, a former governor of the state, said this while addressing hundreds of party faithful at the Lagos State APC Stakeholders’ meeting at the party secretariat at Acme Road, Ikeja.
The stakeholders’ forum was held in preparation for the July 22 council polls.
Tinubu regretted the loss of some national and state legislative seats to the PDP in the 2015 general elections.
“2015 election was the greatest battle of our time. In the last election, we lost more than three LGAs to our opponents, which is very unusual.
“We have asked our leaders in those local governments to examine what went wrong and work together to chart a new course to ensure the APC wins back those councils.
“PDP cannot have any share in these council elections,” Tinubu said.
The national leader commended party faithful for their support to Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode’s administration, saying that the governor had not disappointed the party and the people.
“We are grateful to you the people for your great support during the 2015 election. We have continued to hold Lagos in spite of strong opposition.
“Gov. Ambode has not let us down; he is doing a fantastic job in an environment where we have the economic challenges. He is doing it and he is doing very very well.
“He has a very good team. He is doing a great job and we are very proud of that,” he said.
Tinubu urged party leaders at the grassroots to shun bribery and favouritism, adding that quality leadership and merit should be upheld.
“Our leaders should be fair to the people at the grassroots; we cannot please all, but we can satisfy the majority. This politics is give and take, compromise.’’
