All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship
candidate in Lagos State, Mr. Akinwumi Ambode, on
Wednesday said that the party has recorded
tremendous achievements that qualified it to govern
Lagos again come 2015.
Ambode disclosed this while speaking during a
courtesy visit to the Chief Henry Ajomale-led executive
council of the APC at the party secretariat in Ikeja.
According to him, other political parties in the country
need to emulate the APC’s openness and internal
democracy.
He said, “It is a clear message that not only can other
parties learn from us, but that the APC deserves to
retain our dear state Lagos and take over the federal
structure in 2015. No one can be in doubt any longer
that as our members converge on Lagos today for our
national convention, the same spirit of openness,
fairness and camaraderie will prevail in choosing our
presidential candidate.
Commending Ajomale for the success of the primaries,
Ambode said, “I congratulate and express my gratitude
to the leadership of our party in Lagos for the
successes recorded so far in the primary conducted by
the party in Lagos State. The rancour-free, open and
transparent manner in which the primaries to the State
House of Assembly, National Assembly and for the
governorship slots were conducted, in the full glare of
the media and various observers, made the All
progressives Party to be a party worthy of emulation.
“Unlike elsewhere where parallel elections are being
held by different factions; where the aspirants are
constrained to wear bullet-proof vests and casualties
being recorded, the APC primaries under your watch
have recorded no violence whatsoever. Not a single
candidate has threatened to leave the party on account
of the conduct of the primaries. Instead, aspirants are
congratulating winners with a promise to ensure victory
for the party at the February 2015 elections.
“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 last
Thursday. 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. We
have also shown that internal democracy can thrive and
be well communicated to the whole nation. This is what
your leadership has achieved. This is what has been
clearly communicated and which is being applauded
even by critics.”
