The African Democratic Congress, ADC, has vowed to rescue Lagos State from the stranglehold of “ political vampires and emperors” if voted into power in 2019.
ADC national chairman, Ralph Nwosu , stated this on Thursday at the official opening of the ADC Lagos State Secretariat in Onipanu.
He said the people did not replace the military to enthrone emperors who would corner the nation’s commonwealth.
Nwosu called on the people of Lagos State to rise up and reject the continued rule of the APC in the state.
Also, the Lagos State Chairman of the ADC, Babatunde Daramola, speaking on Thursday, urged the people to reject an arrangement where “one individual is collecting N4 billion of your money every month. ”
He said the ADC had come to give the people back their right such that anyone could become anything in Lagos State without needing to “visit Bourdillon to go and see the lion or go to Lugard, to see an elephant .”
“Some of us worked and fought under NADECO ; we spent our resources,” Nwosu said.
“We didn ’t get the military to leave power to now have emperors; enough is enough. The victory of this party must begin from Lagos State because Lagos State is full of political vipers and they must be removed .”
And according to Daramola:“Nobody is coming to rescue us ; we must rise to the occasion . If we don’ t rise up , God forbid , our children will be enslaved.”
