Jagaban of LAGOS State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the National
leader of All Progressives Congress (APC) has assured the people of Lagos state threatening APC to loose Lagos state to the hands of the opposition party if the impeachment coup can't be halt.
Tinubu made the declaration after a peace meeting brokered by the APC leadership in the State to end the rift between the Governor and lawmakers which was held at Lagos House, Marina.
The APC chieftain told newsmen that there is no longer a question of impeachment of the Lagos State Governor.
He said it was gratifying to note that the conflict between the Governor and the members of the State Assembly had been amicably settled.
Tinubu, who spoke on behalf of all the APC leaders in the State, said the executive and the legislative arms of government in the State had resolved to work together in the interest of the State.
He said: “We held a meeting on behalf of Lagos, the entire Lagosians, our party – APC leadership. In the last one week, there has been noise about the conflict between the executive and the State Assembly. It is of great concern to all of us and particularly what Lagos represents across the country.
“We have been able to look into the source of various conflicts which is not uncommon in politics, what is the genesis of those problems? We are one big family and as a big family, you will have some rumples, you will have some disagreement..."
"..As leaders of the .., we have looked into that, we have looked into areas where we have to compromise, discuss and build the institutions, encourage the institutions to really do what is right."
Tinubu thanked the Governor, his deputy, Dr Idiat Adebule and the leadership of the House for agreeing to the peaceful resolution of the conflict, saying it was evident that consequences of allowing such conflict to fester would have been dire not just for the State, but the entire country.
