Senator Olorunnibe Mamora has said Lagos State is an All Progressives Congress (APC) state and cannot afford to lose it to any desperate opposition parties.
He said all governors under the ruling party, starting from Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to Sanwo-Olu had done wonderfully well in terms of developmental infrastructures in the state which needs more continuity.
Mamora said this in a statement by the Director, Media/Communication of APC National Special Intervention Committee for Lagos Gubernatorial/Assembly Elections, Amb. Oluseyi Bamigbade.
It said that Senator Mamora met with the state’s party Chairman, Cornelius Ojelabi, at the ruling party’s Secretariat in Ikeja.
The statement noted that the meeting was a wake-up call to the APC leaders to improve their performances as other opposition parties are desperate to unseat the incumbent governor.
Senator Mamora admonished the All Progressives Congress (APC) leaders to double their mobilisation and campaign in ensuring Sanwo-Olu emerged the winner of March 18, governorship elections.
He Mamoora condemned the woeful performances of the Lagos State political leaders during the last presidential election that produced Tinubu as the next president.
He stressed the need for the aggrieved members to shed their swords and work in unity for the betterment of Sanwo-Olu, and all the lawmakers’ candidates in Lagos, saying APC can not afford to loose the governorship seat to oppositions.
The Lagos State Party Chairman, Cornelius Ojelabi, said the party leaders have left behind their responsibilities, adding that everyone are eyeing top positions without minding the importance of grassroots mobilisation.
He admonished the leaders to dig-deep in grassroots mobilisation, which will involve both youth and women, saying Lagos has become the centre of attraction to the opposition parties.
According to the Chairman, all the party leaders are expected to embark on rigorous campaign across the communities in all the local governments and local council development areas in the state to enable the party’s candidates win the elections with wide margins.
