“I am saddened by the death of one of our political leaders in Lagos APC, Chief Lanre Razak.

He was an extremely loyal politician, who did his best for our party, the All Progressives Congress,” Sanwo-Olu said.

Comrade Abba Yaro, APC chairman in the state, made this disclosure and further added that the party will welcome both new and former members in time soon.
Yaro, who described the former speaker as a valuable asset, assured that Ikyange will strengthen the popularity and acceptability of the APC in Benue state.
Meanwhile, Governor Nyesom Wike has asked the Rivers leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) not to give the All Progressives Congress (APC) a breathing space in the state. Wike insisted that the APC had nothing to offer the people of Rivers state.
He called on members of the committee to show more love to PDP by being loyal and committed, The Nation reports.
The governor disclosed this when the state executive committee members led by Amb. Desmond Akawor presented the party’s action plan to him at the Government House in Port Harcourt.
According to Wike, the ruling party has nothing to say that will convince Rivers people as the reason they should be voted for.
