The All Progressive Congress, APC, in Lagos State on Monday urged its
members to see themselves as one and work collectively for the progress
of the party in the state.

Chief Kaoli Olusanya, Vice-Chairman of the party in Lagos East
Senatorial District, made the plea at a meeting with supporters of
former Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode, on the platform of the Ambode Movement
Support Group (AMSG) and other aggrieved members.

member and would continue to treat all fairly.

Olusanya said the party decided to have a meeting with Ambode supporters

“It is important that all members of the party should come together and
work collectively for the progress of our party.

“Yes, some people may feel aggrieved, but we will continue to talk to
them so that we can resolve those issues.

“The Ambode Movement Support Group and other aggrieved members are still
members of our party; they have not defected to other parties.

“So, all they need is recognition; all they need is integration; all
they need is for their grievances to be listened to, and that is what we
are doing here today.

“It is necessary to do this as a political party so that our fortunes
will be brighter because everyone has an area of influence; they too
have contributions to make.

“Ambode has his followers, we have to talk to them with the hope that

Council Development Area, and a staunch supporter of Ambode’s
re-election bid, commended the party leaders for meeting with the
aggrieved members.

“I am obviously happy that we are all coming together to move the party

“We don’t have any other party; this is the only party that we have. We
are grateful for this meeting.

“We don’t wish that any party should wrestle power from APC; the party
will continue to govern Lagos State by God’s grace.

“We are happy that the party is speaking to everybody and carrying
everybody along. By God‘s grace, APC will emerge victoriously,” he said.

He commended the National Leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and
Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, for their efforts at building a stronger and
more united party.
