LG Elections: Only Violent Politicians Can Win Elections In Lagos –PDP


The Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC) has fixed July 24 for the conduct of chairmanship and council elections into the 20 local government areas and 37 local council development areas (LCDAs).

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Lagos State chapter, on Monday said it is unsure of winning any council in the forthcoming local government elections in Lagos based on the do-or-die politics being exhibited by the ruling party in the state, All Progressives Congress (APC).

While activities are already in top gear in APC, nothing is happening in the PDP, which is the major opposition party in the state. Many are of the opinion that the PDP may have boycotted the polls as elections into local governments have always been a ‘winner-takes-all’ affair for the ruling party across the country.

However, speaking with reporters Taofik Gani, the PDP’s pub­licity secretary, said while the party is not boycotting the election, PDP members are skeptical about investing their money because of the do-or-die politics in the APC, which according to him, was witnessed in the conduct of their primaries last Saturday.

“We are not boycotting the election. However, the political environment is not giving peo­ple confidence. While we are not boycotting, I am sure there is a lot of cynicism on the part of our candidates who will be spending their hard-earned money. But we are very sure that they have their options to win the election when they are convinced that they are contesting”.
