LAGOS – The Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, Lagos State chapter, has stated that the party does not need the endorsement of Labour Party, LP, to win elections at any level in Lagos State.
In a statement, the ACN Publicity Secretary, Mr. Joe Igbokwe, described the gesture by the Labour Party is a Greek gift.
ACN was reacting to the statement credited to the Labour Party governorship candidate, Dr. Rotimi Olulana that the party is supporting the second term bid of Governor Babatunde Fashola but will field candidates for other positions on its platform.
According to Igbokwe, “Ordinarily, we in the Lagos State chapter of the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, would have ignored the purported endorsement of our governorship candidate and current governor, Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola for the April polls.
