…Tinubu petitioned
Tension is mounting in Apapa/Iganmu Federal
Constituency of Lagos State over the crisis rocking the
nomination process of the All Progressives Congress
(APC).
The crisis reportedly climaxed on Friday with the chairman
of the party in the constituency allegedly locking out one of
the aspirants, Dr. Adesola Adedayo of the party secretariat
and stopping his declaration for the ticket.
Adedayo, the immediate past chairman of Apapa/Iganmu
local council development area (LCDA) and his supporters
were said to have been denied entry, with the party
chairman, Alhaji Morufu Gbadamosi Ojora allegedly going
away with the keys.
Executive members in wards making up the council areas
have fired a petition to the national leader of the party,
Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, state party chairman, Dele Ajomale
among others.
The petition signed by 30 executive members, reads in part,
“ in a contest that requires a level-playing field for all
aspirants and an unbiased officiating, Alhaji Ojora is using
his privileged position to openly canvass to the LGAs and
Ward executives of the party for the blanket endorsement of
Hon. Adewale Babatunde for the House of Represenatives
under the pretence that the party had given directive for
automatic return of all legislators both at the state and
National Assemblies.
“Today, all is not well with the Apapa/Iganmu chapter as
Ojora is hell-bent on foisting his preferred candidate for
the seat on electorates through the back door.
“More woorrisome is his penchant to drop Prince Olusi’s
name whenever it seemed convenient to confer legitimacy
on whatever he says, knowing full well that other exco
members do not have the kind of access he enjoys with our
Leader.
“In a deliberate bid to scuttle the ambition of our obviously
more popular candidate, Hon. Adedayo, whose aspiration
enjoys wider acceptance, he has refused to summons LGA
party meeting.
