The Peoples Democratic Party in Lagos State is leaving no stone unturned in its quest to win local council elections in the State which will come up later in the year.
To this end, the party has held consultative meetings with its members to keep them abreast of events in Lagos.
Though no date has been fixed for the council polls, the PDP has set the ball rolling with the mobilization of its members across the state.
The party’s chairman in Lagos, Tunji Shelle says the mobilization of its members is predicated on the party’s decision to field candidates in the disputed 37 local council development areas in Lagos.
Although the party gave a good account of itself at the last general election by winning eight state assembly seats and six federal House of Representatives positions, the divisions within its leadership may affect its chances at the polls.
This is because factional leaders of the party like the State vice chairman and Secretary were conspicuously absent at the meetings and programmes organized by the Tunji Shelle led executive.
But the Chairman Tunji Shelle says disagreements are not uncommon in a party as large as the PDP, adding that the party is poised to create an upset in the forthcoming elections in the State and the country in general.
Whether or not the PDP succeeds in its quest to win the local council elections in Lagos is premised on its ability to resolve its internal differences.
