Opposition parties negotiate alliance to defeat APC in Lagos State gubernatorial polls

PDP, LP, and others negotiate alliance to unseat APC in Lagos State

Several opposition political parties, including the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Labour Party (LP), are reportedly in talks to form an alliance ahead of the upcoming gubernatorial elections in Lagos State on March 11th. The aim of the alliance is to defeat the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.

Speaking at a media briefing in Ikeja, Lagos, Senatorial candidate of the PDP for Lagos West, Segun Adewale (popularly known as Aeroland), and Dr. Femi Ferguson, President of the Ndigbo United Association, Lagos Chapter, confirmed the ongoing negotiations.

Aeroland also accused the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of manipulating the Lagos West senatorial polls, which he claims to have won by a significant margin. He demanded that INEC release a Certificate of Return to him. The PDP candidate expressed confidence in the alliance, noting that it would help to bring the much-needed change to the state’s political landscape. The LP also expressed support for the alliance, with its Chairman in Lagos, Prof. Ifagbemi Awamaridi, stating that the opposition parties have agreed to work together to ensure victory at the polls.

As the election draws closer, it remains to be seen whether this opposition alliance will be able to make a significant impact and displace the ruling APC in Lagos State. However, with the increasing discontent among Lagosians over the state of governance and infrastructure in the state, the opposition parties appear to be positioning themselves for a strong challenge. The election is expected to be closely contested, and the outcome may have significant implications for Nigeria’s political landscape.
