Simon Lalong, legislative head of Plateau state, says not at all like the People groups Law based Gathering (PDP) which is still entangled in contentions over its possibility for the Ondo state governorship decision, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has talked with a voice.
Tending to state house journalists on Monday, Lalong, who is administrator of the APC battle board of trustees for the Ondo survey, said it wasn’t right for the PDP to request that Buhari help it resolve its inner emergency.
He prompted the resistance gathering to take a signal from it which does not “keep running” to the president when there are issues.
Lalong asked Olusegun Mimiko, his Ondo partner, to figure out how to determine the emergency in his state.
“Let me say it was even wrong for them to start running to Mr. President to help them solve the problem in their party,” he said.
“Mr President is the president of Nigeria and he is not a member of PDP. Even when we have problems in APC, we don’t run to Mr President.
“If he (Mimiko) has a problem in his state, he is the governor, let him stay there and resolve the matter.
“It’s a matter between PDP and PDP, and those matters are in court. So, why should you run to the president? Is the president the chief judge of Nigeria? He is not the INEC chairman either.”
Lalong boasted that the APC would win the election just as it did in Kogi and Edo states.
On Friday, Mimiko visited President Muhammadu Buhari to intimate him of the fallout of the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to pick Jimoh Ibrahim of the Ali Modu Sheriff faction over Eyitayo Jegede of the Ahmed Makarfi group.
Though the commission backed up its decision with a court order, supporters of Jegede would have none of that.
They trooped to the streets chanting abusive songs and setting up bonfires on major roads in Akure and Owo towns.
Blaming INEC for the disturbances, Mimiko accused the electoral body of attempting to set the state on fire.
