What Lagos APC Should Learn From Osun Election.pics by Antoeni(m): 5:57am On Sep 24, 2018
By Temitope Ajayi

The lessons of the current outcome of Osun election are more poignant for Lagos All Progressives Congress (APC) actors than Osun political actors who will face a rerun on Thursday as announced by Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

APC would have kissed Osun goodbye today if not for Osogbo result that significantly downgraded Hurricane Ede. It would have been a kiss of death!

Electorates are getting more sophisticated and any electoral permutations that do not factor the voters' behaviour will deliver nothing.
Lagos APC chieftains are behaving like spoilt brats thinking they have Lagos in the Kitty and some guys in the name of a bloc within the party can take the voters in Lagos for granted.

Attempting to replace Ambode, a performing and sitting governor of Lagos who is APC poster boy for good governance may not be too good for Lagos APC with a Jimi Agbaje resurgence.



A Jimi Agbaje on the ballot for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos can throw up the current scenario in Osun for Lagos in next year election.



Beyond the challenge from PDP in Osun, APC from field reports went to battle in Osun with a divided party. Lagos voters can punish APC next year if it turned out that vested interests who see governance as simply their personal interests can conspire to deny a governor a second term.

The Osun election result today should help the APC actors in Lagos to have some introspection and realign interests for the greater good of the party and the people of Lagos.

Osun just underscores the importance of credible candidate for both the APC and PDP. If PDP had presented Ogunbiyi there may have been a clear winner. If APC had presented a candidate without the baggage of Aregbesola too the outcome may have been different.

APC cannot afford to offend the voters in Lagos. There is already a growing resentment against the internal contradictions within the party. Whatever that suggests lack of respect for the electorates should be dropped now.
An Ambode will make Lagos an easy win for APC.

Stupidity is when a party is rallying round the worst performing governor in Nigeria but wants to drop its best performing governor.
Its a sign that such party is antithetic to good governance

No basis for comparison.......
Ambode never owe any worker salary for a day.

Fayose lost because of that, and if Aregbe loses because of the same reason also, then so be it.
(BUT, will the Opposition be the best Man for the Job?!
That now depends on the indigenes!)
Stop comparing Ambode with such guys.

Nice try by you tho........

Osun election should be a lesson to PDP because any mistake in choosing their Presidential flag bearer will give APC and Buhari advantage just as it gave Osun APC a slim hope now. If PDP had chosen Ogunbiyi or even Lere in Osun the inconclusive saga would not have appeared

No matter what, people's choice will be manifested because we have a man of integrity at the helm of affairs, he doesn't believe in meddling and tampering with people's will.

Perfect analysis by the OP. Jimi Agbaje and Babatunde Fashola's gubernatorial debate of 2007 was the best live debate I've ever watched in Nigerian Politics. The only reason Jimi Agbaje lost the election was because APC (then AC) was united in bringing down the strangehold of the PDP.

Agbaje is just unlucky to be on the losing side each time, and if APC does not fix up their internal mess before 2019, that man Jimi Agbaje will not only defeat Otedola for the PDP candidate for Lagos State Governor, but will WIN THE LAGOS STATE GOVERNORSHIP ELECTION. A divided APC cannot stand against a PDP bent on regaining power.
