An aggrieved leader in the Lagos state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has alleged that a southwest leader of the party, Bola Tinubu, is planning to contest for president in 2023.
The APC member who pleaded not to be named also blamed Tinubu for the leadership crisis rocking the southwest chapter of the party.
The party leader told This Day that the primaries in Lagos state has caused problems which may lead to extraordinary consequences for the party in the coming elections.
“It is sad though. End of one-man’s rule may finally be here. There is enormous interest in what those disaffected with Lagos APC primaries will do. It will significantly affect presidential and governorship elections results in Lagos. If they all act their conscience and hidden agenda, then an earthquake will happen in Lagos,” he said.
“It is the era of the revolution to free Lagos now. Tinubu may have installed the last governor in open elections. The undue and unjust interference of Tinubu’s over ambition to be president in 2023. He imposed Oshiomhole and Osinbajo on the APC due to their selfishness.
“This practice will sure cause the party to suffer loss in a lot of states including, Ogun, Lagos, Osun, Ondo, Oyo, Imo, Zamfara, Akwa Ibom Delta, Benue, Kwara, Bayelsa, Abia and many other states, where Tinubu is seeking to install stooges as governors in preparation for his 2023 presidential bid, having deceived and blackmailed President Buhari.”
Meanwhile, efforts at resolving the intraparty crisis rocking the APC in the southwest have again failed as several aggrieved members of the party, including southwest governors boycotted the meeting of the six-man reconciliation committee, which kicked off on December 10 in Ekiti State and ended on December 12 in Lagos state.
Multiple sources told This Day that most of the aggrieved aspirants threatened to work against the APC during the 2019 general election if the party failed to address diverse issues they had raised before the committee.
