Parallel Congress: 1 wise move Ganduje wants to take that Tinubu should also consider taking in Lagos

The aftermath of last Saturday’s state Congresses held by the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) has further thrown the party into crisis in many states.

You will recall that parallel congresses were held by some APC top shots to rival the Congresses held by the state Governors, who are the leaders of the party in the state.

In Kano and Lagos, parallel congresses were conducted by former Governors of the state, Ibrahim Shekarau and Akinwunmi Ambode to rival the Congresses held by Kano and Lagos State Governors, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and Babajide Sanwoolu.

But according to the Daily Trust, Kano State Governor, Umar Ganduje has began to make moves to reconcile with members of the camp led by Shekarau. This reconciliation move is very vital in my opinion and I will analyze briefly why similar steps should be taken in Lagos by the national leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who is the ultimate leader of APC in Lagos.

Why Tinubu should also consider making moves for reconciliation like Ganduje.

Kano and Lagos have been very vital to the success of the ruling party since they took power from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2015.

Kano alone has given the APC over three million votes in the last two presidential elections combined. While Lagos, the economic capital of the nation, is a state the APC cannot afford to lose considering the huge amount of income generated in the state.

However, the opposition in Lagos may be buoyed to capture the state for the first going by the recent crisis that marred the state Congress. The Daily Trust reports that four parallel congresses were conducted in Lagos by various camps within the APC in the state.

This is a huge sign that there is growing discontent within the Lagos chapter of the APC and unless Tinubu begins to make moves for reconciliation like Ganduje, the various camps revolting against his leadership may be a threat to the success of the APC at the forthcoming general elections.
