National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has expressed disappointment over the party’s loss of five House of Representatives seats to Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos, in the March 28th National Assembly elections.
Speaking in Lagos, at an emergency stakeholders meeting to review last election and strategize for Saturday’s governorship and state house of assembly elections, the former Governor of Lagos State said “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,” Tinubu said.
The APC leader, however, charged the party leaders to redeem their in-action or be changed according to the slogan of the party.
He stressed that although the APC was confident of continuing in the state, the party cannot afford to miss it again in the next election.
Those present at the meeting include State Chairman of the party, Chief Henry Ajomale, Senators-elect, Oluremi Tinubu, Gbenga Ashafa and Olamilekan Adeola, Demola Seriki, all state party leaders among others.
