All Progressives Congress, APC, Lagos state chapter on Thursday denied rumours that it has perfected plans to stop third term aspirants from contesting the 2015 elections.
Chief Henry Ajomale, the state chapter of the party made the clarifications in a statement issued by the Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr. Joe Igbokwe.
“The reports now making the rounds about alleged decision by the leadership of APC in Lagos to stop aspirants from contesting after a second term is a fallacy.
“There is no iota of truth in the report as no such decision was reached. It is a total mis-representation of the decision reached and such information must have emanated from Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, agents and not APC.
“The Governors’ Advisory Committee, GAC, never issued such a directive or reached such a decision.
“The APC believes in the inalienable rights of every eligible member to contest for any elective office for as many terms as possible as long as it is constitutional.”
While Governors and the President are entitled to a two term of years each, there is no such constitutional restrictions on legislators both at the state and national level.
