In a statement debunking reports that Lagos State chapter of All Progressive Congress (APC) was bedeviled with crisis over the preparation for the setting up the next state executive council by Governor-elect, Babajide Sawnwo-Olu
The party said the assignment will be performed by the next governor, following his inauguration on May 29.
Alhaji Tunde Balogun, the chairman, frowned at the misleading report by a section of the media that the issue had become a bone of contention between the Mandate Group and the Governorship Advisory Committee (GAC).
According to Balogun, the report was designed to cause disaffection in the party.
He made this known in a statement issued in Lagos that the fake and mischievous report was also meant to cause disaffection among GAC members and former Osun State Governor Rauf Aregbesola.
“There is no looming crisis in Lagos APC. For the avoidance of doubt, the governor-elect, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, is focused on the task ahead of him, which is to accelerate the development of the state and improve the wellbeing of Lagosians, Balogun said.
“He is taking his job step-by-step. No group or individual is knocking heads with another over cabinet. When he is inaugurated, by the grace of God on May 29, Governor-elect Sanwo-Olu will form his cabinet to the admiration of all and sundry.
“The Lagos APC is intact and solidly behind Mr. Sanwo-Olu. We all share the laudable dream of that visionary APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, for a greater Lagos State that accommodates all, irrespective of social status, ethnic origin or religion.”
