0

The Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, on Tuesday officially banned members who have spent eight years as ward, council and state executive members from seeking re-election in its May congresses.

According to Tinubu the decision was to allow fresh set of people occupy party offices with a view to taking the APC to the next level in the state.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the national leadership of the party had recently fixed May 2,5, 9 and 14 for ward, local government, state and national congresses respectively.

With Tuesday’s pronouncement by Tinubu, the chairman of the party in the state, Chief Henry Ajomale, who had led the chapter for a very long period, will be unable to seek re-election.

He also said: “We fought hard against tenure elongation, and now we are going to have our congresses.

“Some of you who have spent two, three, four terms as ward, local government and state executive members, it is time to go.

“We thank you, we appreciate you. But we want you to step aside. It is time for those who have been crawling for years to walk. It is time for the youths to take over.

“I mean if you have spent eight years, twelve years, you have tried. You should give us chance, let us now have new people.”

Tinubu added that party executive members who had only spent one term were free to seek re-election, provided they did not have records of misconduct in office.
