The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, Thursday scorned the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Lagos State chapter, over its controversial primaries.
The primary election, which produced Olujimi Agbaje, has been disputed by a frontline aspirant in the race, Musiliu Obanikoro.
Ambode lauded his party for a successful delegate election unlike the PDP’s, which has been disputed.
Ambode said: “I am proud of our party, and I am sure you share in this enthusiasm. The reason is simple: the APC in Lagos State has demonstrated strength, popularity and acceptability as the preferred choice of the people. We have done this through the huge number of delegates that voted at our primary election last Thursday.”
Ambode implied that the PDP with less delegates ended with varying figures.
“Our competitor could only muster a fraction of our delegates, even at that, their figures could barely add up. In line with its progressive orientation, our party has shown to the world its sterling qualities; that ours is a unified, non-acrimonious, and accountable party,” he said.
