Tinubu Vs Ambode: There is no earthquake in Lagos APC – Oshiomole
National chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Comrade Adam Oshiomole has blamed some section of the media for creating an impression that there was an ongoing earthquake in the Lagos State chapter of the Party.
He noted that the beauty of politics was election and maintained that in every office in election, they have been more than one candidate expressing interest. And it would be unfair to conclude that those people who are currently occupying those positions should be called embattled just by the reason of those new expressions of interests.
“There is no APC governor that is embattled and because we are democratic, the best way to measure democracy is the presence of more than one person showing interest in an office,” he stated
“That does not make any other person embattled. But, of course, the media can create this impression that there is an earthquake in Lagos; there is no earthquake.
“At every level, I have seen people claiming that in one or two offices there was no opposition. In every other office, we have more than one candidate expressing interest. Those people who are currently occupying those positions are not by reasons of those new expressions of interests, embattled.
“Three, to say that you have never seen Lagos state governor in our meetings is to the extent that your lens is blurred. My records and minutes of our meetings will show the participation of the Lagos state governor in all the meetings in which he has been invited.
“I think our party in Lagos is at peace.”
