…No petition from Lagos, says Adamu


Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has charged the Senator Abdullahi Adamu-led All Progressives Congress (APC) National Reconciliation Committee to unite all party members in the country, especially in States where there are differences within the party.

Governor Sanwo-Olu while receiving the Chairman and Members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Reconciliation Committee, who paid a courtesy visit on him at the Lagos House Marina, on Thursday, said Lagos is lucky because there is no petition from the State.

The Governor assured that the citizens will enjoy the dividend of democracy, which is a major essence of government, maintaining that with APC, the benefits can be seen in all the nooks and crannies of the country.

He said: "We are happy that the Caretaker and Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee headed by his Excellency Mai Mala Buni has put together this committee and I believe it is in tandem with the fact that as a big family, we would have different ideas, expectations or different intentions as to how things are being run in our various states and I know fully well that there are States where we need to come together and resolve our issues collectively.

"We are lucky in Lagos that there is no petition. It is not that we are better than States that do have but because indeed this is a party to beat and it is a party that everybody wants to be identified with.
