The former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, on Thursday called on chieftains of the All Progressives Congress in Lagos State to help the party secure maximum votes during the Governorship and state house of rep election.
The APC National Leader while speaking after a closed-door meeting with members of the Governor’s Advisory Council, GAC, at the secretariat of the Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu, Independent Campaign Group, BOS-ICG, in Ikeja GRA, he called out party chiefs for failing to deliver maximum votes during the presidential election.
“Please, don’t praise me, I don’t need your praises, after the poor performance you all put up at the presidential and National Assembly elections in the state,” Vanguard quoted Tinubu as saying.
“It showed that most of the chieftains and council chairmen did not mobilize the grassroots after all the support from the party”.
“I will not condone this act any further. Party leaders and council chairmen who fail to perform to expectation at the next governorship and House of Assembly polls on March 9, should be ready to resign or face the music”.
“We have over three million registered APC members, yet the performance last Saturday was poor”.
“The chairman of the state party, (Babatunde Balongun) should know that his position is not a permanent one. If he fails, he will have to go too,”
In attendance at the meeting were: GAC members led by Prince Tajudeen Olusi, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, Dr Yomi Finnih, Sanwo-Olu and his running-mate, Dr Femi Hamzat, APC state chairman, Tunde Balogun and executive members, among others.
