Protest: Lagos APC youths condemn assault on Ojelabi, wants investigation

The Youth Wing of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Badagry Division, Lagos State, has condemned attack on the State Party Chairman, Pastor Cornelius Ojelabi, by protesters from Alimosho Local Government Area.

Recalled that some angry APC members from Alimosho Local Government Area on Monday protested at the party secretariat and nearly beat up the party state chairman over unresolved grievances.

It was reported that the protest was instigated by some APC leaders in the LGA, who felt their people were not recognised at the reconciliation meeting initiated by the state party chairman.

Reacting, Hon. Moses Aina, the Legislative House Leader of the Oto Awori Local Council Development Area (LCDA) and Public Relations Officer for APC Youths, Badagry Division, in a statement on Tuesday, condemned the assault on the chairman.

“It has come to our attention that some members of APC from Alimosho recently carried out an attack on the State Chairman of our great party, Pastor Cornelius Ojelabi.

“This act is both condemnable and unacceptable.

“As APC youths from Badagry Division, we strongly condemn this act of violence and call on the leadership of our party to investigate the matter.

“We urge the Governor’s Advisory Council (GAC) of the party to take swift action against those who would be found to be culpable in this uncivilised act,” Aina said.

According to him, if anybody or group within the party has any grudges against the leadership of the party, such should follow due process by bringing the matter to the knowledge of the party for amicable resolution.

“Resorting to jungle justice such as launching an attack on the state chairman of our great party leaves much to be desired and can never help in solving misunderstanding,” he added.

Aina said that the APC, under the leadership of Ojelabi, had a reputation for hard work and high-value.

“We will not allow an ugly and unholy behaviour from some disgruntled elements to tarnish the image and reputation of our ever-performing party.

“We will not tolerate any form of violence or intimidation within our party.

“We must uphold the principles of our party and ensure that those who violate them are held accountable,” he said.

The councilor, representing Ward D in the LCDA, said Badagry Division would continue to stand in solidarity with Ojelabi and the leadership of the APC in Lagos.

He called on all members of the party to remain peaceful and refrain from any form of violence.

“Let us work together to build a stronger and better APC for the good of Lagos State and our great nation.

“Let us all stand together and work as a team towards a better future for ourselves and generations to come,” he said.
