Crisis Rocks Lagos APC, as Parallel Congresses hold

The erstwhile camaraderie within the Lagos State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been broken with news reaching us that a parallel congress of the party held today at the Airport Hotel Lagos.

In a letter signed by Fouad Oki, who claims to be the State Chairman, he invited journalists to attend the congress and we were told that a representative of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was also there.

We gathered that the Congress was held by members who had cried that they wanted election and not selection.

Meanwhile at the other congress, Alhaji TundeĀ  Balogun had emerged as Chairman.

The officers are:

  • Tunde Balogun, state chairman
  • Sunday Ajose, deputy chairman
  • Funsho Olugunde, vice-chairman (west)
  • Ashipa Olusanya, vice-chairman (east)
  • Akeem Bangbola, vice-chairman (central)
