The Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress has announced that Senator Tokunbo Afikuyomi is no longer a member of the APC and not serving the interest of the party at any level, either state or national.
The APC in a statement issued today by its Publicity Secretary, Dr.Joe
Igbokwe today in Lagos, said that Afikuyomi is a member of Accord
Party engaging in clandestine activities to undermine the APC in Lagos
so as to promote opposition politicians in the process leading to the
According to Igbokwe, the party says it is aware of Afikuyomi’s
activities and his pretension of being an APC member while he is an
Accord Party member who is fully committed to the promotion of
interests inimical to APC’s interests.
The party however cited the fact that Afikuyomi’s right to association
is inalienable but unsuspecting members of APC should be wary of his
“We believe it is within the rights of Afikuyomi to work for any
interests that suit his fancy, we feel obliged to warn faithful &
loyal APC members that Afikuyomi is not one of us, contrary to the
impression he gives to unsuspecting party members.
“While we don’t grudge Afikuyomi his rights to choose and work for any
platform or candidate of his choice, we warn him to desist from
claiming to be a member of our great party and proudly own up to the
interest of whomever he is working for. We know Afikuyomi as a member
of Accord Party and the Lagos State exco of APC does not know him as
one of us as we are aware he has left our party for Accord Party.
“We therefore alert members of our party and anyone dealing with
Afikuyomi to clearly know that he is not a member of APC. We want this
notice to be spread among our members in every nook and cranny of
Lagos so as to guard against being misled by Afikuyomi and those he is
“While Lagos APC salutes Lagosians for their impregnable fidelity to
APC, we want them to look for impostors and fifth columnists who have
promised their masters that they will assist their doomed campaigns
and interests by sowing confusion in APC.
“This disclaimer on Afikuyomi is an effort to dispel such damned
efforts. We urge Lagosians to stick firmly with an APC that has served
them so well in Lagos and which had gotten a pan-Nigerian renewal of
mandate to give the country continued good, honest and fruitful
governance for the next four years”,Igbokwe said.
