- A socio-political group in Lagos says Asiwaju Bola Tinubu should stop dictating the political pace of Lagos state
- The group said the political atmosphere in Lagos is unnecessarily overcharged due to the ‘shenanigans of one individual’
- It said Lagos cannot continue to pay homage to the insatiable appetite of a political tarantula
The Lagos Democracy Advancement Forces, a socio-political group, says Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), should cease to dictate the political pace of the state.
The group’s convener, Mark Adebayo, made the comment at a news conference in Lagos on Thursday, September 13, Punch reports.
NAIJ.com gathers that the group opined that the political atmosphere in Lagos is unnecessarily overcharged due to the “shenanigans of one individual desperate to maintain a political stranglehold on the state.”
Adebayo insisted that there is a need to stop the state from continuing to be a pawn on the chessboard of an individual.
He said: “Lagos state cannot continue to be in the pocket of Asiwaju Tinubu. 2019 provides an auspicious opportunity for a mass political revolution by Lagosians to liberate the state from continued political and economic enslavement.
“Lagos state, with a population of almost 30 million people, is a mini Nigeria and cannot continue to pay homage to the insatiable appetite of a political tarantula.’’
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that amidst reports of a rift between Governor Akinwunmi Ambode and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the APC national leader gave the nod for all aspirants to participate in the Lagos primary election.
Governor Ambode has declared his intention to run for a second term as governor of the state, but faces stiff competition from two formidable aspirants, Femi Hamzat and Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
