Sanwo-Olu seeks orderliness ahead of Lagos APC primaries

Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has appealed to APC members in the state to conduct themselves in an orderly manner in choosing delegates for the party’s primaries.

Sanwo-Olu made the call on Tuesday, May 17, in Ikeja at stakeholders’ meeting ahead of APC congresses and primaries.

He urged APC stakeholders to prioritise APC’s interest; while also abiding by guidelines and tenets of the party.

Major stakeholders invited to the meeting included members of the Governance Advisory Council (GAC); Conference 57, Lagos State House of Assembly, National Assembly, and Technical Support Committees.

“We need to conduct ourselves by the rules and regulations of our party so that we will not run foul of anything. The APC in Lagos are always law abiding.

“We are party men and women who are faithful to our party; and we will continue to uplift the collective interest of our party. Moreso now that we believe that God is looking at us in Lagos for bigger things.

“The responsibility is for all of us in Lagos. We must also live, work and dream the tenets of the party – the rules and the guidelines of the party.

“We know how we do it in Lagos and we must do it well; properly and without any rancour or disturbance.

“Let us go out there and conduct ourselves fairly and in an order which is worthy of emulation. There should not be any form of misunderstanding and misgivings because we have a bigger agenda,” Sanwo-Olu said.

Speaking on behalf of the GAC, Mr Tajudeen Olusi, urged the party leaders to see themselves as stakeholders and invest more in the sustenance of the party.

“Some of us have invested a lot in the APC. We have even invested our respective lives into the party and politics. Many people don’t even know the risks,” Olusi said.

According to him, the party is faced with a crucial election in 2023; where some people are threatening to take Lagos from the progressives.

“We have to work and strive. It is important that we work. We must entrust this responsibility with people who have 100 per cent loyalties. We must tell ourselves, loyalty is being threatened and saboteurs are there,” he said.
