I was not beaten to stupor with my head broken, says Afikuyomi
I was not beaten to stupor with my head broken, says Afikuyomi

Tokunbo Afikuyomi, Chairman of the APC  Local Government Electoral Committee, has described the incident involving aggrieved members of the party at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, venue of the party’s primaries for its candidates for the forthcoming council polls in Lagos, as grossly exaggerated.

“The fact that I was at work till very late in the night with my team on Saturday, and the fact that i have been up and about since 4am on Sunday for the same purpose cannot logically support the unfortunate media reports that i was beaten to stupor with my head broken,” he said.

Afikuyomi thanked members of the party within and outside of Nigeria as well as non-partisan members of the business community who have since called or visited him to ascertain the veracity of the report.

He appealed to any aggrieved member to take advantage of the conflict resolution mechanisms provided by the party.

He further called on all members of the party at the ward levels to make themselves available at the designated centres where the councillorship elections will hold tomorrow saying adequate arrangements have been made for security across the state.

“We are determined to see this process through. We are resolving genuine complaints by decent members of the party almost on a daily basis. Our overall strategic objective is to ensure that the current wave of rapid infrastructure development being witnessed across the state can be cascaded to the grassroots by elected Chairmen in all the 57 local governments of Lagos.

“This is the reason i took up this assignment. This is what i have chosen to give to my dear state.”
