All Progressives Congress (APC) Lagos state Chapter, has taken a swift at the Executive Governor of Oyo state, Mr Seyi Makinde on his recent comments about the party and the state at a reconciliation parley with stakeholders of the PDP held at the office of the former PDP Deputy National Chairman, Chief Olabode George in Lagos.
Makinde, who is the Chairman, Reconciliation Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), declared that with the move to reconcile aggrieved party members in Lagos State, APC should be ready for defeat come 2023.
While reacting to the comments, the Lagos APC in a statement issued on Friday by its Publicity Secretary, Mr Seye Oladejo, said that PDP cannot take Lagos from the path of progressive governance, stressing that it would take more than the stillborn unity amongst gangsters to achieve such.
Oladejo added that it appears Makinde had the spirit of clairvoyance through which he is able to predict his political future of imminent defeat in future elections, adding further that he could boost his democratic credentials by obeying court orders as regards the issue of local government chairmen.
The statement reads further ” My candid advice to Gov Seyi Makinde is this Igbo proverb that ‘those whose palm kernels were broken for them by some benevolent spirit should learn to be humble’. His Excellency is apparently still excited that he managed to attain his dream office after series of electoral defeats. He needs not forget that he leveraged on the storm in the Oyo state APC family”
” However, his lack of experience in governance at any level has become apparent with nine months of false starts and lack of developmental ideas. It will take more than the still-born unity amongst gangsters to take Lagos State from the path of progressive governance. However, it appears HE Seyi Makinde has the spirit of clairvoyance through which he’s able to predict his political future of imminent defeat in future elections. He could boost his democratic credentials by obeying court orders as regards the issue of local government chairmen”, said Lagos APC
“Those he disappointed in their ill-conceived desperate power sharing formula are still waiting to take their pound of flesh. The good and politically sophisticated people of Oyo state know better than to allow unfocused experimentation in governance to continue”, said Lagos APC
