Former Governor of Lagos state and national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has opened up about the party’s problems at the grassroots level.
Reacting to the large turn out of members during the Saturday’s nationwide congress, Tinubu disclosed that congresses were the best option to ‘energize’ the party.
In a statement issued by his spokesperson, Tunde Rahman, the veteran politician said that the exercise went as planned.
“They queue up behind whoever they want, no pre-ordained candidate. The turn-out was very impressive. The membership of the party is growing in leaps. We are open to all Democrats who want to identify with us.
This is one of the best ways to energize the party that is almost remaining dormant at the grassroots level and you could see the sense of belonging and the energy and activities of the ordinary people. It is a great joy for me.
Until the various officials who are here to conduct the congresses write their reports, my own admonition is to continue to appeal to our party members to conduct themselves peacefully and to comply with the rule of law.”
