Lagos APC Gives Reasons Why It Has Not Congratulated Agbaje On Victory

The Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress says it will not congratulate the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Mr. Jimi Agbaje, because the events that led to his victory were allegedly dubious.
The publicity secretary of the party, Mr. Joe Igbokwe, said the PDP was a party of hypocrites because they were doing the same thing they had accused the APC of doing in the past.
The APC wondered how the number... of votes could exceed the number of delegates that voted at the primary on Monday.
The APC said it was unfortunate that the PDP could not properly conduct a primary of less than 1,000 delegates when it (APC) successfully conducted a primary that had over 5,000 delegates in attendance last week.
It said the PDP had shown that it was not democratic as it went ahead to impose Agbaje despite the fact that another aspirant, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, had been making allegations about the plan for over a month.
The APC said, “We cannot congratulate Agbaje yet because there is still infighting. The circumstances that led to the emergence of Agbaje were illegitimate and as a democratic party we will not encourage such by congratulating him.
“You see how clear it was with our candidate, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode. The body language of the PDP leaders had shown that they were supporting Agbaje and they went ahead to perpetrate fraud just as Obanikoro had predicted.”
When asked if the APC would be willing to receive Obanikoro if he defected from the PDP, the party said, “Obanikoro knows the best step that will favour him. If he feels his 10 years away from our party is regretful, he is free to return, we cannot reject him.”
In a later statement, the party also welcomed the over 8,000 delegates from all over the country that would participate in the presidential primary of the party on Wednesday (today).
