Congress: Lagos4Lagos Releases Aspirants’ Names For APC State Executives


Ahead of the forthcoming All Progressives Congress (APC) State Congressess scheduled to hold on October 16th nationwide, a group within the Lagos APC, Lagos4Lagos, has released the names of its aspirants for the 36 positions of the executive committee.

The group made the announcement at a press conference held at its headquarters in Ikeja, Lagos on Thursday.

While reeling out the names, the Lead Visioner of the group, Dr Olajide Adediran commonly known as JANDOR, said that the unveiling demonstrated the readiness of the group to participate in the state congress, adding “We want to put an end to the impunity and the imposition going on in Lagos. What we stand for is that we want selection choices to be returned to the people. We don’t want a situation where some people will sit somewhere and cook up some list and send it out and then tell everybody to follow.

“If you are popular, there is no point imposing an unpopular candidate over those that are popular. Some of these things have been happening during our primaries in the last two decades and quite recently during the last L.G.A congress. We are putting a stop to it”

Fielding questions from journalists, Adediran said the movement is a law-abiding organization that takes all actions in accordance with the laws of the party.

He added that Lagos4Lagos is not opposed to consensus, provided it is done in fairness and in compliance with the party constitution.

While expressing his satisfaction with the movement’s adherence to party guidelines, Adediran added that the 36 man exco had purchased nomination forms for the congress.
