.The People’s Democratic Party PDP Lagos State Chapter ably led by Engr Adedeji Doherty has cried out to all concerned about reports received of violence at the APC primaries to elect Chairmanship and Councillorship candidates for the forthcoming Local Council elections in the State.
Reports filtering in, have it that the in fighting amongst the ranks of APC for candidates to emerge have degenerated to the extent of records of deaths.
It is on record that two persons have been reported dead in the primaries in SuruLere LGA.
In another development, in Imota Local Council Development Area, Deputy Council Leader, Ishola Tope Adesina, was shot dead by unknown gunmen
The reports received of these deaths have sent jitters down the spines of PDP members to the extent of thoughts that if this could happen amongst a family fold, what could happen during the election proper.
The PDP in Lagos State categorically stated that, the recent killing of innocent youths within the APC only exposes their desperation to rule by force and at all cost the more.
In view of this, the Engr Adedeji Doherty led Executive Committee have called on the National Leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu and all other security agencies in the State, to urgently look into the ugly situation for the success of the forthcoming council elections.
It further reiterated that the importance of conducting a peaceful election in Lagos State is very important to the overall security of lives and property in the already security fragile Country.
Peace must be maintained at all cost and that is what Lagosians want.
