PDP replies Tinubu, APC on Lagos LCDA polls

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed its disappointment in the statements credited to the All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Chief Bola Tinubu, that the PDP will win nothing in the forthcoming council polls in Lagos, describing the statement as unfortunate.

Mr Taofik Gani, Publicity Secretary of the PDP in Lagos State on Friday that the party, despite some internal problems, would put up a good show in the elections.

He said that the electorate, and not the APC chieftain, would decide the outcome of the elections, and the PDP still had its followers in the state.

Gani said that the PDP would continue to insist on free and fair elections.

“PDP is a party to reckon with in the state, we are watching them and we will not allow them (APC) to have their way,“ he said.

Gani said that the Moshood-Salvador camp of the party was working for the unity of the party and would do everything within its powers to ensure members stayed as one.

Tinubu had on Wednesday while addressing a crowd of APC supporters at a stakeholders meeting said that the PDP would win nothing in the July 22 election, as APC would sweep the polls.

He said that though the party lost some state and national legislative seats to the PDP in some constituencies in the 2015 elections, the APC was working to win back support in the affected councils.

“We have asked our leaders in those local governments to examine what went wrong and work together to chart a new course to ensure APC win back those councils,” he had said.
