APC National leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has expressed his disappointment over the loss of five House of Representatives seats to Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on March 28, 2015.
According to Vanguard, Tinubu organized an emergency meeting to review last election and strategize for Saturday’s governorship and state house of assembly election. The meeting was held at APC Lagos secretariat, Ikeja.
Tinubu told the party leaders that, “You, the party leaders have disappointed us. For the first time, we lost five House of Representatives seats to the opposition party, this is unacceptable, a huge disappointment.Though in politics you win some you loose some You have failed. So there is no excuse to fail this time.
“Also you did not come out in large number, were you afraid? You have no cause to be afraid as adequate security is on ground to protect you and your property. So don’t be intimidated by their sporadic shooting of guns meant to scare you away from doing your civic right. The Hausa communities had a very good and encouraging turn-out, we expect better performance this time.”
Asiwaju also stated that despite APC confidence to continue in the state, the party can’t afford to lose the governorship seat to PDP in Lagos because they have no experience.
Those in attendance at the meeting were: Chief Henry Ajomale (State Chairman of the party), Senator elects- Oluremi Tinubu, Gbenga Ashafa and Olamilekan Adeola, Demola Seriki, all top party leaders among others.
