Ambode Refuses To Pick APC ID Card, Blocks Party Chairman From Calling Him

Published

The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress in Lagos, Tunde Balogun, has responded to the claims made by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode about his membership card.

Addressing newsmen at the party secretariat in Acme, the chairman said he made several attempt to reach the Governor but, he rejected his phone calls.

He also used the opportunity to display the Governor’s membership card and asked him to come for it at the party secretariat.

It will be recalled that Gov Ambode held a world press conference yesterday challenging the party leadership in the state and the federal to reconsider their option on who takes the party’s ticket in Lagos state.

“The party constitution allows us to do direct and indirect primaries. The Lagos State APC has agreed to go with direct primaries and in that wise it is open to all contestants and so it is very clear that during direct primaries, I am also eligible to participate in the primaries. What we want is a very clean board to allow everybody to partake in it.

“We believe that it is in the greater interest of the party to allow reason to prevail and allow every contestant to come out and show their strength. I believe strongly that it is in the interest of the country that our party should activate as much as possible all the democratic values that our party has always been known for and that is what I stand for,” he said.
