The Lagos state All Progressives Congress (APC) today held a family meeting at its party secretariat to discuss strategies and moves to strengthen their plans to ensure victory in the forthcoming general polls. The meeting was convened and chaired by the National leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and it focused on how to further maximize the elections’ extension to favour the resolve for Change.
“All hands must be on deck to ensure that our resolve for continuity in Lagos and for Change at the centre remains strong. You all should be a volunteer for your own good in the interest of this country”, Tinubu said.
The National leader decried the low rate of Permanent Voters’ Card (PVC) collection in the state, which currently stands at an average 62%. He urged the party leaders and members to work harder and not get weary in order to achieve resounding victory for the party despite the postponement.
He said the nation is now in the moment where wise choices are the only options to salvage both the state and the country; the reason why he said there must be continuous orientation and pragmatic mobilization of the electorates in favour of the Change option.
“Lagos is the headquarters of progressives, Lagos is the centre of excellence with a an exemplary economy. It is clear that Ambode, a very brilliant and sharp man of distinction with a financially sound mind, is the person to vote for in order to ensure continuity especially considering the dwindling economy at the centre”, Asiwaju said.
He added, “Please do this as your civic responsibility for yourselves, for the sakes of your children and for the party”.
He then enjoined the party members not to entertain fear in their common quest for Change and good governance, labeling the opposition’s scare tactics as “mere antics that hold no water”.
The APC governorship candidate, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, his running mate, Dr. (Mrs) Oluranti Adebule, the governor of Lagos state, Governor Babatunde Fashola, the state party chairman, Chief Henry Ajomale, all other party leaders and members were all present at the strategic meeting.
