The Chairman of the Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Mr. Campbell Umeh-Nzekwe, has told the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)that it cannot win the 2015 elections in Lagos state with reliance on President Goodluck Jonathan’s support.
Umeh-Nzekwe felt that if former President Olusegun Obasanjo, a Yoruba man could not deliver Lagos to PDP after two attempts, it will be difficult for Jonathan to do it. He then advised the PDP to support his party because according to him, the APGA is a more formidable party in Lagos state.
“The PDP should stop heating up the political situation in Lagos State because they don’t have the structure; they don’t have the financial capacity to win election in Lagos. As I am talking to you, some of them (aspirants) don’t know their ward chairmen.
“They are just gathering to negotiate national cake, not to win election. It has been their system since 1999. The PDP has only won a House of Assembly seat in Lagos since 1999.
“Their leader, Bode George, has never won his polling unit before and the PDP is his empire. The current chairman, Tunji Shelle, is not a politician. He was George’s subordinate in the navy. There is no way they can win election.
“So, the PDP is just making a noise. Their hope is that Jonathan will help them but if Obasanjo, a son of the soil, could not win Lagos State, it would be naïve to think that Jonathan, an Ijaw man, can win it for them.” Umeh-Nzekwe said.
