48 hours later, APC disowns Oba Akiolu

The All progressive Congress (APC) has finally condemned the xenophobic utterances of Oba Rilwan Akiolu who asked Igbos living in Lagos to vote Ambode or perish in the Lagoon.

The party which did not issue a formal disavowal for all of 48 hours, finally distanced itself and their  candidate from the Oba with a series of tweets.

The most categorical read:

Going forward the party that won the Presidential election tweeted that the Oba was speaking in his personal capacity and was not conveying the party’s position.

The party also noted how inclusive the government of Lagos state has been in the past 16 years.

APC also pointed to the diversity in the Lagos state cabinet.
