A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, Chief Lanre Razak, has said there are no vacancies in both Aso Villa in Abuja and Alausa Government House in Lagos State, asserting that, “APC will walk over other parties in the 2019 general elections.”
Razak, who was a former commissioner for public transportation in the state, said what people viewed as crisis in the APC camp was never a crisis, stressing: “It is just as a result of individuals struggling to get a viable and sure platform to win elections.”
He added: “As at today, APC is the only viable platform on which people can win elections,” adding, “that explains the steam you notice in the efforts of those struggling to have the tickets to contest elections on the party’s platform.”
According to him, the struggle to contest election on APC platform is never a crisis that indicates that members of the party would vote for other parties on the day of election.
Razak said: “We have very solid and effective crisis management mechanism that would be deployed to resolve all the issues before the elections.”
Speaking further, he insisted that, “in Lagos State also, there is no threat to the APC either from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) or any other party,” expressing confidence that, “we will over run them.”
The politician, who hinged his confidence on the leadership prowess of the APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, said APC performances across the country in the last three and a half years show that, “in 2019, I have absolute confidence in Tinubu’s leadership and I don’t have doubt in his ability to lead us to the promiseland.”
Tinubu, according to him, is a God-sent leader other leaders ought to emulate, saying, “I am fully in support of all actions he has been taking so far because the actions are in the best interest of democracy and humanity.”
Razak, said the Lagos State APC governorship candidate, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, will win convincingly because of what the electorate in Nigeria and Lagos State know about Tinubu’s leadership and APC performance in the state.
