Election: Tinubu blasts Lagos APC Chieftain, tell them what to do on Saturday
The National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Thursday blasted the party chieftain in Lagos for failing to leave up to expectations during last Saturday’s Presidential and National Assembly election.
Speaking to stakeholders after a closed-door meeting with members of the Governor’s Advisory Council (GAC) at the secretariat of the Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu, Independent Campaign Group, BOS-ICG, in Ikeja GRA, Tinubu urges all APC chieftain to ensure the party secures maximum votes during March 9 elections.
“Please, don’t praise me, I don’t need your praises, after the poor performance you all put up at the presidential and National Assembly elections in the state,” he was quoted to have said
“It showed that most of the chieftains and council chairmen did not mobilize the grassroots after all the support from the party.
“I will not condone this act any further. Party leaders and council chairmen who fail to perform to expectation at the next governorship and House of Assembly polls on March 9, should be ready to resign or face the music.
“We have over three million registered APC members, yet the performance last Saturday was poor.
“The chairman of the state party, (Babatunde Balongun) should know that his position is not a permanent one. If he fails, he will have to go too,” he added.
