- Kofoworola Bucknor-Akerele says the outcome of the governorship primary of the APC in Lagos was disgraceful
- She says the outcome shows that the party is more like a mafia organisation
- The former deputy governor also claimed she was never close to Bola Tinubu
Kofoworola Bucknor-Akerele, former deputy governor of Lagos state, has claimed that Lagos state governorship primary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was absolutely disgraceful.
According to the former deputy governor, this shows that the party is more like a mafia organisation, Channels TV reports.
“I think it is absolutely disgraceful, what has happened in the APC because it would seem that the whole idea in the APC is that everyone should be serving one man and if you’re not ready to serve that one man, then you are out, so to speak. It’s not a political party; it’s more like a mafia organisation,” he said.
Speaking further, Akerele who was deputy governor in the administration of former Lagos state governor, Bola Tinubu from 1999 to 2002 also said that she was never close to the national leader of the APC.
“Well, I was never ‘very close’ to him. Yes, we were together in the Senate, we fought for the restoration of June 12 and I was his deputy but certainly if the way he treated me when I was his deputy is the way you treat someone who is very close to you, then I’m sorry, I think it leaves much to be desired,” Akerele added.
