LAGOS 2015: Why we won’t congratulate PDP candidate, Agbaje – APC



The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Lagos state has
stated why the party will not congratulate Mr. JImi
Agbaje over his emergence as the governorship
candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in the
2015 election.
According to APC, the circumstances that led to the
emergence of Agbaje were illegitimate, hence their
decision not to congratulate him.
The state publicity secretary of the party, Mr. Joe
Igbokwe, disclosed this.
He said the PDP was a party of hypocrites because
they were doing the same thing they had accused the
APC of doing in the past, and wondered how the
number of votes could exceed the number of delegates
that voted at the party’s primary on Monday.
Igbokwe added that it was unfortunate the PDP couldn’t
conduct a free, fair and credible primary of less than
1,000 delegates when his party, APC, successfully
conducted a primary of over 5,000 delegates last week.
The APC said, “We cannot congratulate Agbaje yet
because there is still infighting. The circumstances that
led to the emergence of Agbaje were illegitimate and as
a democratic party we will not encourage such by
congratulating him.
“You see how clear it was with our candidate, Mr.
Akinwunmi Ambode. The body language of the PDP
leaders had shown that they were supporting Agbaje
and they went ahead to perpetrate fraud just as
Obanikoro had predicted.”
Speaking on if Obanikoro decides to defect to the APC,
the party said, “Obanikoro knows the best step that will
favour him. If he feels his 10 years away from our party
is regretful, he is free to return, we cannot reject him.”
