Lagos Guber Race: Group Raises Alarm Over Plot To Disqualify Olorunfemi Mustapha

Olorunfemi Mustapha

A support group known as Mustapha4Lagos Agenda has frowned at an alleged plot by the screening committee of the All Progressives Congress, (APC), to disqualify Olorunfemi Mustapha from contesting the Lagos State gubernatorial election.

The group which has an agenda of ensuring that the former permanent secretary actualises his gubernatorial ambition expressed their disappointment in a statement sent to www.theoctopusnews.com, and signed by Engr. Bayo Aderibigbe.

Head of Mustapha4Lagos Agenda, Bukola Ogundipe, alleged that the plot to get  Mustapha screened out is being orchestrated from the camp of the incumbent Governor, saying Sanwo-Olu had allegedly enlisted the support of some elements within the screening committee to perfect the plan.

According to Ogundipe, the incumbent has identified Mustapha as the biggest threat to his reelection bid having realised that the Information Technology and Financial Systems expert is eminently qualified to take the state to the next level and enjoys the support of many Lagosians including the leadership of the party in the state.

Stating that the politician’s legal team is meeting with the national body of the party to quash the plot, Ogundipe said:

“We have uncovered a plot to disqualify our aspirant from the race; they know that the only way they can stop Mustapha from getting the party ticket is to make sure he doesn’t participate in the primary. Let us forget about the noise they are making, he is the man to beat. We are very certain that their plot will not see the light of the day because Mustapha is clean and meets all the criteria required by the constitution of our party and the guidelines for the elections.

“The duo of Mustapha and Olawale Oluwo would seek to contest the party ticket with the incumbent governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwoolu in a primary scheduled to take place on Thursday, May 26.

“As we speak, our lawyers have met with the leadership of our party in Abuja to make sure that this evil plot does not see the light of the day. The national body must step up and quash this evil plan. Sanwoolu has been throwing money around, spending billions to buy people but this is about the future of our state and the leadership of our party in Lagos knows that we can’t continue with the abysmal performance of the incumbent.”
