Some Nigerians who understand the politics of Lagos will wonder why Jandor dared Tinubu by arranging a parallel congress when Tinubu upon return from the UK has urged the APC family in Lagos to be united and focused ahead of the state congress. That will form the basis of our discussion in this article. 

Why did Jandor dare Tinubu by arranging parallel congress in the state? 

According to Vanguard, Prince Sunday Ajayi has been nominated as the chairman of the executive council by Jandor who is leading the Lagos4Lagos movement.

Jandor believes that it is time to save the party from godfatherism and ensure that party members decide who becomes the candidate of APC in the 2023 gubernatorial election.

This development is worrisome because APC, Lagos, led by out-going Tunde Balogun has concluded plans to hold its congress at Mobolaji Johnson stadium in Ikeja.

Jandor and his group plan to hold their congress at Airport Hotel, Ikeja. Recall that APC leadership recognizes the Lagos APC led by Tunde Balogun and this is where Bola Ahmed Tinubu belong.

Jandor believes that the APC congress in Lagos will mark the beginning of his plans to end godfatherism in Lagos.

However, some people think that Jandor is bitting more than he can chew because Tinubu who he plans to fight politically has more influence in Lagos than him.

In one of the interviews Jandor granted to Vanguard newspaper, he appeared to be courageous in his fight to ensure that he emerges the next Governor of Lagos State and is ready to work with ordinary Lagosians to achieve this.
