The All Progressives Congress (APC), Lagos State chapter, has slammed Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, for his comments on godfatherism in Lagos politics.
The party’s reaction came after el-Rufai said he would not apologise for the comment.
Speaking with State House correspondents on Monday, el-Rufai said he stood by his earlier statement that anyone who desired to win the governorship election in Lagos could do so without any godfather by taking advantage of the 5 million registered voters in Lagos that did not vote during the 2019 general election.
However, the Lagos APC accused el-Rufai of being jealous of Tinubu’s influence.
The party said: “They want to be like ASIWAJU, they want to command respect, they want the world to accept them the way they have accepted ASIWAJU , they want to get great followers like ASIWAJU BAT, they want to be admired the way people admire ASIWAJU, they want the people to love them the way they love ASIWAJU, they want to stand tall anywhere they go like ASIWAJU, they want to attract attention like ASIWAJU, they want to be celebrated and honored like ASIWAJU, they want to be worshiped the way ASIWAJU’s great followers worship him, they want be lifted up the way God has lifted ASIWAJU up, they want to be noticed like ASIWAJU, they want to stand out like ASIWAJU and they want to influence decisions at all levels like ASIWAJU, etc.”
