The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Lagos State, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, has mocked the Peoples Democratic Party over the conduct of its governorship primary which produced Mr. Jimi Agbage as the winner.
In the primary, 806 accredited delegates voted but the number of votes cast turned out to be 863. However, Ambode in a statement on Thursday said it was laughable that while the APC was able to conduct a primary with over 5,000 delegates without hitches, the PDP could not do the same with less than 900.
He said, “I am proud of our party, and I am sure you share in this enthusiasm. The reason is simple: the APC in Lagos State has demonstrated strength, popularity and acceptability as the preferred choice of the people. We have done this through the huge number of delegates that voted at our primary election last Thursday.
“Our competitor could only muster a fraction of our delegates, even at that, their figures could barely add up. In line with its progressive orientation, our party has shown to the world its sterling qualities; that ours is a unified, non-acrimonious, and accountable party.”
