Tinubu, Ambode, Others Meet Over Lagos APC Crisis
The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, Lagos State governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, Chairman of the APC in Lagos, Henry Ajomale and other party chieftains are expected to convene a crucial stakeholders’ meeting today, Wednesday, August 2.
The meeting was called to resolve the internal crisis generated in the build up to the just concluded council polls in the state, among others.
It was gathered that the forum taking place at APC State Secretariat, in Acme, Ogba, was called on the insistence of party leaders.
It is meant to address anti-party activities of some members towards the council polls. Important decisions and appropriate sanctions are also expected to be fashioned against any erring member, with a view to serve as deterrent.
According to source, the drama created by aggrieved members during and after primary elections greatly embarrassed the state leadership of the party, and it would like to resolve such to end further acrimony.
The stakeholders will also come up with a strategy to prevent any ugly situation from arising at the newly inaugurated Election Petition Tribunal set up to handle electoral grievances by political parties as regards the conduct and results of the council polls.
