Lagos Council Poll: Orelope-Adefulire sues for peace ahead of APC primary
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Sustainable Development Goals (SSAP-SDGs), Princess Adejoke Orelope Adefulire, has appealed for calm ahead of the primary elections of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the local government election in Lagos State scheduled for Saturday, July 29.
Adefulire, a former deputy governor of the state, in a statement yesterday, urged contestants in the primary elections to shun all forms of violence, so as to have peaceful atmosphere needed for the conduct of the election.
She especially appealed to contestants in Alimosho, as well as councils to commit to peace, see themselves as brothers and sisters and ensure the contest does not degenerate into violence and bloodbath.
The presidential aide also urged all contestants to realise that there can only be one winner at the end of the electoral process and there would always be opportunities to put themselves forward for service at other times in the future, even if they are not the choice of the people now.
The presidential aide charged all those saddled with the responsibility of presiding over the primaries to ensure the process is free, fair and transparent, so that the results would be acceptable to all at the end of the day.
