Tinubu Lambast Lagos APC Leaders

National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has expressed his disappointment over the loss of five House of Representatives seats to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, during the presidential and National Assembly elections.
Tinubu stated this at an emergency stakeholders meeting to review the recent election, as well as, strategise for Saturday’s governorship and state house of assembly election, held at the APC Lagos Secretariat, Ikeja.
Those in attendance at the meeting were: State Chairman of the party, Chief Henry Ajomale, Senators Oluremi Tinubu, Gbenga Ashafa and Olamilekan Adeola, among others.
Tinubu, who reeled out the House of Representatives election results across local government areas in the state said, “You, the party leaders have disappointed us. For the first time, we lost five House of Representatives seats to the opposition party. This is unacceptable. It is a huge disappointment. Though in politics, you win some , you lose some, you have failed. So there is no excuse to fail this time.”
“Also, you did not come out in large numbers. Were you afraid? You have no cause to be afraid as there was adequate security to protect you and your property. So don’t be intimidated by the sporadic shootings, meant to scare you away from doing your civic rights. The Hausa communities had a very good and encouraging turn-out, we expect better performance this time.”
Tinubu who lambasted the leaders for failing to adequately mobilise their people, including party agents across the wards, charged them to redeem their image or be changed, according to the slogan of the party.
He said that , although the APC is confident of victory, the party cannot afford to be complacent in tomorrow’s election as it’s too risky to leave Lagos in the hands of inexperienced hands.
