Lagosians Will End APC’s Political Control In Future Elections – PDP



The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has come out to say that banning groups within All Progressives Congress, APC is an admission of a problem and long term reaction, which has indeed stalled development in the state over the years.

PDP recently revealed that it is sad that the bans are never done with Lagosians in mind, but because of the selfish political ambitions of APC chieftains.

According to PDP’s Publicity Secretary, Taofik Gani, APC is also running other groupings and this has contributed largely to the grossly maladministered, extortionist, and unsafe Lagos state.

He added that he is sure Lagosians will ban APC’s political control in the state in all future elections.

His words, “Even law enforcement agencies ought to have arrested, prosecuted and convicted the actors as well as proscribing the groups.

“They are in the forefront of collecting free Lagos funds, abandoning development projects, diverting palliatives meant for the vulnerable, imposing mediocre incompetent office holders, attacking and coercing opposition interests in all walks of life.”
