Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Sen. Bola Tinubu, on Wednesday said the party in Lagos remained unbeatable.
Tinubu said this at the Lagos APC secretariat on Acme Road, Ogba, during the party’s caucus meeting.
Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State led all members of the State Executive Council to the meeting, which was presided over by the Lagos APC chairman, Pastor Cornelius Ojelabi.
Tinubu said that he returned to his political base to meet the Lagos APC family stronger than he left it.
According to him, those entrusted with the administration of the party affairs after he weaned himself off the supervisory duty have not made him regret his decision to pursue his presidential ambition.
He passed a vote of confidence on Sanwo-Olu and other party leaders for nurturing the APC political machinery in the state, stressing that the party remained unbeatable in Lagos.
”I left Lagos for Abuja, leaving the party members with Sanwo-Olu, Hamzat, leaders of the Governor’s Advisory Council and other party leaders.
”They are the ones who released me to go to Abuja to contest. I left with many doubts and I was uncertain about what would be the fate of the party. I was constantly in touch with the governor and his deputy.
”Sometimes, I would call the party chairman and ask them if we were doing the right thing in Lagos. The reports they always gave me more courage and confidence to move on with my engagement in Abuja.
”I thank all of our leaders for keeping the party stronger. I handed over to you an undefeated platform in Lagos. The manner with which the party affairs have been conducted shows these people have fairly managed the home base,” Tinubu said.
He recalled that his journey to secure the party’s presidential nomination in Abuja was littered with uncertainties, but said the support raised from Lagos APC leadership boosted his confidence to move on and win the primaries.
