The All Progressives Congress has inspired us this morning- with a pretty darn good analogy.
The APC in Lagos state, says that if a goat cannot give birth to a lion, then the Peoples Democratic Party can never rule the state.
The party was reacting to the Lagos State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal, which on Wednesday, struck out a petition filed by the PDP governorship candidate in the state, Jimi Agbaje.
In a statement by the publicity secretary of Lagos APC, Joe Igbokwe- the ruling party said it was impossible for PDP to seize control of Lagos.
“The PDP in Lagos had said they did everything to win Lagos, including setting one ethnic group against the other, dishing out millions of dollars and pound sterling, unleashing ethnic militias like the Oodua People’s Congress, deploying security agencies, SURE-P outlaws and others to harass and intimidate Lagosians to succumb and surrender Lagos to them.
Lagos PDP failed because there is no meeting point between light and darkness, no meeting point between the serious and the unserious, no meeting point between conservatives and progressives, and no meeting point between performers and underperformers.
How can you move a car forward by engaging the reverse gear? How can you plant cassava and hope to harvest yam? Can a goat give birth to a lion?
The truth is that Lagos has always been in the hands of progressives since it was created in 1967 and the strong and dynamic Lagos will continue to remain in the hands of the progressives for a long time to come.
Progressives will continue to strive for greater heights in raising standards not only in Lagos but the whole of Nigeria.”
