Hours after InsideMainland reported the declaration by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s Commissioner for Information & Strategy, Hon. Kehinde Bamigbetan to support another candidate, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu in the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary in the state, his deputy, Dr. Idiat Oluranti Adebule, has done same.
The Lagos State Deputy Governor Dr. Idiat Oluranti Adebule earlier today, Tuesday, October 2, 2018, said she voted for Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu during the primary because that was the decision of All Progressives Congress (APC) members in the state.
Speaking during the exercise in Iba, Lagos Mainland, where she casted her vote, Dr. Adebule said party members voted in line with the dictates of the party.
According to her, the supremacy of the party on the primary is sacrosanct, adding that she totally aligned with the dictate and position of the party, promising that she would support whoever emerged as the winner of the primary election.
“I have no doubt that anybody that emerged today as the candidate of the party will have my support, I have no doubt as exhibited by my people today that they are standing with the party’s position on this primary and with that position I stand,” Adebule said.
She further commended party members and the party electoral body for making the exercise free, fair and violent-free.
She assured that she would stand by the outcome of the primary and follow the dictate of the party, adding that the supremacy of the party is very important in any political decision.
“I stand and I choose to stay with my party at this time, my party has spoken and I have no doubt to state that on the position of the party I stand, It is a very clear election as you can see, people are voting in line with the dictates of the party. We have voted for the person who the leaders of the party have chosen. It is an overwhelming experience as you can see it and we will continue to support the party and abide by its rules,” she said.
