Again, PDP Reaches Out To Governor Ambode, Others In APC
The party said the APC members should join the “free Lagos train” to be recorded as true progressives and in essence, return the governance of the state to the people.
The PDP’s entreaty was given effect on the inability of some members of the APC to get the party’s ticket to contest in the 2019 elections.
Spokesman of the PDP, Mr. Taofiq Gani, in a statement said aggrieved members should be bold enough to dump the APC, adding that they should emulate their members in Ogun, Oyo, Kaduna, Imo, among others.
The PDP noted that such aggrieved members of the ruling party were in all the senatorial districts of the state, claiming that some of them were denied second term ticket for no just cause.
The PDP had consistently expressed its preparedness to welcom Ambode if he chose to dump the APC.
The opposition party’s statement said: “To be fair to some persons in the Lagos APC, they have not done badly to warrant the disgrace of being denied another term. In order words the APC rather sees them as being without any value.
“Such individuals are invited to assert their relevance in their voting areas by supporting candidates against the APC.
This is a common struggle this time to free Lagos.”
