Lagos Governorship: APC Aspirants Decry Imposition Scheme
by flukky01 « on: December 02, 2014, 07:38:33 PM »




Numerous aspirants for the Lagos State governorship on the ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) say they are opposed to a primary scheduled this Thursday for choosing the party’s candidate. They described the primary as a ruse orchestrated by former Governor Bola Tinubu to impose his candidate, warning that they were prepared to resist the scheme.

The party’s governorship primary election for Lagos State is scheduled for Thursday, but 12 APC aspirants met on Monday in Lagos and demanded a halt to it. Instead, they have called for either a consensus arrangement or the election of delegates who will then constitute an electoral college to vote on December 4.


Two inside sources told SaharaReporters that the 12 aspirants met in Ikoyi on Monday after collecting their certificates of clearance to contest the election. At their meeting, the aspirants decided to send a letter to the leadership of the APC demanding an urgent meeting no later than Tuesday December 2.

One of the aspirants, who attended the meeting, described Thursday's primary election as a sham in the making, adding that it should not be allowed to take place.
