2023: With Choice Of Running Mate, Lagos PDP Is Unserious- APC
All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos state, has described the choice of Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele as the running mate of Dr Olajide Adediran of the Peoples Democratic Party Party (PDP) as a display of unseriousness on the part of the pposition party.
APC said this in a statement issued on Tuesday by its State Publicity Secretary, Mr Seye Oladejo, while reacting to the political development.
The party said that the choice was as an attempt to trivialize the importance of the forthcoming gubernatorial elections
The statement reads in part : “This development underscores the unseriousness of Lagos state PDP. This amounts to trivializing the importance of the forthcoming gubernatorial elections by giving political neophytes who have absolutely nothing to bring to the table their electoral tickets.
“It also shows lack of depth in the party as regards quality members to put forward for elections if they could give a member who crossed-carpeted a few days before their primaries the governorship ticket and now went to the make-believe industry to fetch a deputy. The reason for voters’ apathy is, undoubtedly, due to lack of credible alternatives by the moribund opposition party.
“I was amused to read that the deputy governorship candidate said she was suspending her acting career for the elections whose result is highly predictable. I guess she’s suspending a lot more because she has been in the news of recent for all the wrong reasons.
“Lagosians will certainly not allow governance to be turned to a needless experiment or a sitcom. Governance is serious business not a circus.”
