The Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has boasted that it is better positioned to win if any election is conducted in the state now.
The Publicity Secretary of the party, Taofik Gani who stated this during an interview, added that the catchment areas of the PDP in Lagos State were well outlined now and that the party was working hard to increase the catchment areas.
He took a swipe at the All Progressives Congress, APC, led government in the state for failing to conduct council elections at the expiration of the tenure of democratically elected council chairmen.
“The Lagos State PDP is well prepared for the council elections. We were expecting that local government elections would be conducted at the expiration of the democratically elected council chairmen but for whatever reasons, the former Governor Raji Fashola shied away from conducting the elections.
“But now, a new governor is there and we are insisting that new governments are democratically in place as stipulated by the constitution. We are indeed better fortified to win elections now, if the elections had been held, there would be no reason for us to challenge the government but now that we have won seats in the House of Assembly and House of Representatives, if any election is conducted now, the PDP is better positioned to win, the party spokesperson said.
Recall that the Peoples Democratic Party won seats in the House of Assembly and House of Representatives in the last general elections.
