Four out of the six Chairmanship aspirants on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ejigbo Local Council Development Area (LCDA) of Lagos State have urged the members of the party across the 57 LGs and LCDAs to remain calm and support the party to ensure victory in the forthcoming polls.

The four aspirants are Dr. Oluwasegun Mutairu Musa, Chief Gbenga Arulogun, Mr. Peter Ajayi and Mr. Habeeb Anibaba.

They urged the National Leader of the party, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu and other major stakeholders to jettison the issue of consensus candidate in the forthcoming election in the state.
The aspirants said for the interest of all, the leadership of the party should urgently make a pronouncement on the next line of action, saying that no consensus was reached by them in any meeting.

The four aspirants under the aegis of Concerned Ejigbo LCDA Chairmanship Aspirants stated this in a statement issued in Lagos yesterday.
They stressed that they are ready to work with anyone who is picked among the four of them as candidate.

The statement reads; “In view of the nature of the primaries, and the fact that no candidate has emerged so far, to fly the flag of the party in the July Local government polls in the State, it has become imperative for the party to make its stand known, so that people of Ejigbo and Lagosians in general, will know the party’s candidate in earnest, so as to shut the door permanently against the opposition. We hereby called on the members of our great party across the 57 LGs and LCDAs to remain calm and support the party to ensure victory for APC in the forthcoming LG polls.”

The aspirants hereby urged the party leadership not to relent in their efforts to ensure that the party will field someone capable of carrying the day in the forthcoming election.
While pledging their loyalty to the leadership of the party, they promised to abide by the decision reached by the party leadership which they are sure will be in the best interest of the party, Lagos State and Nigeria.
