Godfatherism Speech: ‘Lagos State is not Kaduna’ – APC blasts El-Rufai over attack on Tinubu

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has told the Executive Goveernor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai that Lagos State is not like Kaduna State where he retired four godfathers from politics.

At the weekend, the governor took a swipe at Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s dominance of the political structure in Lagos State, stating that the time has come to put an end to Godfatherism in the state just like the way he buried it in Kaduna State.

El-Rufai said that to free Lagos state from the hands of Tinubu, one of the best ways is to start the campaign now by embarking on a study to understand why five million out of the six million voters in Lagos State did not vote.

Joe Igbokwe, Publicity Secretary of the APC in Lagos, while reacting to El-Rufai’s remarks yesterday, stated that Lagos was not Kaduna where El-Rufai ended the dominance of godfathers.

He also stated that anyone who wishes to achieve all what Tinubu has and controls in Nigerian politics must work hard and do less talking.

Igbokwe via a press statement added that: “That is what exactly happened, he was clearly making reference to Asiwaju Tinubu. The person that brought up the question is Muiz Banire, and you know the relationship between Banire and Asiwaju. But Lagos State is not Kaduna.

“They want to be like Asiwaju who commands respect by all means possible, they want to get a great followers like Tinubu, but in deeds and actions they are not like Asiwaju. In character and in tolerance they are not like Asiwaju. In commitment and hard work they are not like BAT.
