'We Will Readily Welcome & Embrace Ambode', Says PDP
The People's Democratic Party has once again offered a 'hand of fellowship' to embattled Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.
The party said it will readily welcome Ambode if he is willing to join.
Governor Ambode's second term became dicey when two aspirants emerged under the platform of the ruling All Progressive Congress.
The Publicity Secretary of the PDP in Lagos, Taofik Gani, however said, "We are ready to accommodate anybody as long as that person is going to add to our interest and that is me confirming to you that we will readily welcome Governor Ambode if he is sent packing by the APC.
“Any member of the party that is against us having somebody join the party is an enemy of the party. No matter what interest you may have, you will not let that selfish interest override the general interest.
“Hon. Jimi Agbaje came into the party when he was seriously opposed, he was lucky to get the governorship ticket. This is not to say that I’m concluding that we are going to give anybody who comes in now the ticket. We are going to provide a level playing field for everybody to participate.
“What I can tell you now is that the political structure of the PDP is bigger than what the APC has. The PDP has been at the national level for 16 years; even though APC has been controlling Lagos, we do have our numbers and structures. With the structure we have, if we have somebody like Ambode, it will be a 100 per cent victory.”
