Lagos PDP Warns APC To Stay Away From Party’s Primaries

The Lagos State chapter of Peoples Democratic
Party (PDP), has advised the All Progressives
Congress (APC) to stay away from its primaries
scheduled to commence in the 40
constituencies in the state, today.

In a statement by the party’s Publicity
Secretary, Mr Taofik Gani, the PDP said
intelligence reports have suggest that the APC
in Lagos State contracted some thugs to
pretend as PDP members at some selected
venues of the primaries.

“The contracted thugs are to provoke violence
at those venues and thereby unleash injuries
on innocent PDP members whilst the image of
the party is soiled. The party has however,
vowed to arrest any agent provocateur in any

“We are starting our primaries to elect our
candidates for the 2015 elections today,
Saturday. For today, the House of Assembly
primaries shall take place in all the 40 state
constituencies distributed amongst the 20 local
government areas of the state. We have
concluded arrangements for the exercise and
all aspirants shall have equal opportunities at
the venues.

“We urge our aspirants and delegates to
comport themselves to prevent any acrimony
at the venues. We are hinted that the Lagos
APC has contracted thugs to provoke violence
and unleash terror on our genuine members
at some venues. It is also intended to paint
the Lagos PDP as violent. We shall watch out
for these thugs and deal with them according
to the law,” the statement read.

The party however promised to provide a level
playing ground for all its aspirants.
