The Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has petitioned President Muhammadu Buhari on the tenure elongation approved for the party National Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun.
Recall that the Lagos State chapter of the party had earlier rejected the extension of Oyegun’s tenure.
Confirming the report on Wednesday, the leader of the APC in Lagos Central senatorial district, Chief Tajudeen Olusi said the Lagos chapter was prepared to register its displeasure with President Buhari and other appropriate organs of the party.
“The option available to us is that we are going to make representations to all organs of the party. We are going to talk with the national leadership, the national executive and President Buhari”, he told Thisday.
“The tenure elongation is against the constitution of Nigeria and the party. It is a means of depriving aspirants who want to aspire. We think we should allow democracy to thrive in the party,” he added.
Noting that APC leaders in Lagos unanimously rejected the elongation after receiving reports from the Chairman, Chief Henry Ajomale, Olusi however declares that the state was in support of the reconciliatory responsibility assigned to former Governor, Bola Tinubu.
