Elections Tribunal: Lagos PDP Youths Urge Fasting, Prayer For Agbaje

Published

on

agbajeThe Lagos State Peoples Democratic Party Youth Leaders Forum has called on its supporters to fast and pray so that the governorship election petition filed by the party at the Election Petitions Tribunal will be decided in its favour.

The group also called on its supporters to come forward with information and documents to support the petition of Mr. Jimi Agbaje, its governorship candidate.

The Publicity Secretary of the group, Mr. Abiodun Abari, who addressed journalists on Monday, said through fasting and praying, “Agbaje’s stolen mandate would be retrieved”.

The Forum also condemned the purported impeachment of the Lagos PDP Chairman, Capt. Tunji Shelle (retd.), describing it as a distraction.

It said rather than dissipate their energy on unfruitful ventures, party members and supporters ought to channel their energies towards ensuring victory for Agbaje and the two senatorial candidates of the party, Segun Adewale of the Lagos-West senatorial district and Chief Olabisi Salis of Lagos-East senatorial district.

While restating its support for Shelle, the PDPYLF warned that it would resist any attempt to undermine the peace and unity of the party, adding that it was confident that the party would emerge victorious at the tribunal.

Abari said, “We condemn the way and manner the aggrieved persons rushed to the press without exploring available options to resolve their grievances internally. We urge all the aggrieved parties to maintain the status quo in the interest of peace and the sensitivity of the period.

“We urge our teeming youths to remain calm and focused in retrieving our mandate despite the confusion which we see as the agenda of the opposition. For our candidates to have put up such a performance in the face of institutionalized collusion between the Independent National Electoral Commission and the opposition to rig in favour of the latter, is heroic and unprecedented.

“The silence resulting from the sham elections conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission in Lagos is palpable. Hence, we urge all party supporters to support the party’s cause at the tribunals by providing documents, evidence, and of course through prayer and fasting so that we can retrieve our various stolen mandate”.
