Lagos Primaries: APC inaugurated committee, as PDP chairmen fume over cancellations

The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Lagos State has inaugurated a nine-man state committee for the forthcoming Governorship, State and National Assembly primaries slated for May 26 and May 27.

The committee is headed by the APC Zonal Organising Secretary, Mr Lateef Ibirogba.

The other members include Adebayo Sanwo-Olu, Olayinka Oladunjoye, Bola Badmus-Olujobi, Hakeem Odumosu, Gbolahan Idris, and Sodiq Ademola.

Others are Dr. Oluremi Shopeyin and Dr Muritala Seriki.

The state Chairman of the party, Cornelius Ojelabi, inaugurated the committee on Monday at the party’s Secretariat, in Acme, Ikeja, Lagos.

Ojelabi urged members of the committee to use their wealth of experience to carry out the task effectively and ensure a seamless exercise.

Meanwhile, 13 Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chairmen in Lagos, under the auspices of PDP Local Government Chairmen Forum have berated the state chairman of the party, Phillips Aivoji over the call for the cancellation of last Sunday’s House of Assembly and House of Representatives primary elections.

The chairmen expressed their displeasure yesterday, during a press conference, held at Lagos Mainland Secretariat of PDP.

The LG chairmen present at the event were: Alimosho, Shomolu, Oshodi-Isolo, Apapa, Kosofe, Apapa, Ikeja, Lagos Island, Lagos Mainland, Agege, Ikorodu, and Mushin.

Chairman of the forum, Adegbesan Adegbenga from Oshodi-Isolo Local Government Area, accused Aivoji of being a biased umpire.

According to Adegbenga, ‘It is shameful that the state chairman who is supposed to be neutral has been sabotaging the interest of the party.”

Secretary of the forum who is also the chairman of Lagos Mainland Local Government, Malomo Adelabi, maintained that the primary election was successful in all the councils.

While corroborating Adegbesan’s statement, Adelabi said, “it is rather unfortunate that the number one state executive of the party would be found in such act.’
