LAGOS â€” Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos StateÂ has dismissed insinuations that there is rift in the Action Congress, AC, saying the party remains a better alternative among all the political parties in Nigeria.
He also declared that AC had the capacity to defeat any party in Nigeria, adding that the party would continue to offer good governance.
Fashola,Â said this yesterday in Lagos at the pre-convention public lecture, adding: â€œThose who think that we are fighting in our great party are dreaming. If they donâ€™t wake up on time, the on-going development in Lagos will bypass them. We remain a great party that offers quality debate on issues that border on national development.â€
He said AC did not benchmark its goals like the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), adding that developmental goals are meant to be continuous.
â€œThose who seek political office in our party donâ€™t do it for self aggrandizment. We have the capacity to defeat any opposition on national development. Our goals are not benchmarked because governance is a continuous thing.
â€œSo, ours is not millennium development goals. Bench marking is not acceptable to us,â€ he said.
He said the party would not fail the expectations of the Nigerians, adding that AC would continue to confront history.
â€œIt is the expectation of the country that we provide qaulity leadership. We will confront history,â€ Fashola added.
