A group within the All Progressives Congress in Lagos — ‘Lagos4Lagos Movement’ — on Saturday held a parallel local government congress at different locations in the state.
This is coming as the mainstream APC group, led by the State Caretaker Committee Chairman, Tunde Balogun, held its congress in designated areas as spelt out by the party’s Local Government Congress Committee.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the APC LGA congresses held nationwide on Saturday.
The Lagos4Lagos Movement, led by Olajide Adediran, alleged impunity, imposition and marginalisation in the party for its action.
In Agege LGA, the group held its congress separately from the designated venue of the mainstream party in the state.
At the congress, 27 LG executives and three national delegates equally emerged, with Mr Babatunde Odikunrin as Chairman, Mr Ogunleye Babatunde as Vice Chairman and 25 other executives.
The names of the three national delegates elected by the group were Mr Sunday Ajayi, Dr Kayode Opeifa, and Mr Afolabi Rasheed.
