“Lagosians Are About To Experience Something Greater” – Tinubu Declares
The National leader of All Progressives Congress (APC) Chief Bola Tinubu has yesterday September 30th declared that the people of Lagos State will experience more bliss during and after the APC primaries.
Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos state stressed that the primary election to be held today, October 1 is a step “toward greater internal democracy and progressive governance for the benefit of all people.”
In a statement he personally signed, Chief Tinubu said:
“Tomorrow, our party and the people of Lagos will have an encounter with destiny. We shall hold our governorship primary.
“With the holding of direct primaries to elect governorship candidates in Lagos and other states, the APC takes a groundbreaking step toward greater internal democracy and progressive governance for the benefit of all people.
“While our party is young, it has grown fast and has travelled far in a short time. This speaks well of the character of you, the party’s rank-and-file members. What, in other nations, has taken political parties generations to achieve, we have done in a few brief years.
“No other party in Nigeria dare attempt what we have already dedicated ourselves to do. I thank and commend all APC members and all Lagosians who have lent their support to this historic and humane mission upon which our party has embarked.
“We are democrats in the truest sense of the word. As such, we forever search for what is good and right for the people. With this ideal as our guide, tomorrow’s primary cannot be shaded by selfish ambition or the perceived personal grievance between this or that person.
