Lagos – The African Democratic Congress (ADC) in Lagos State on Tuesday said it had no plan to go into any form of alliance or coalition to win elections in the state.
Pastor Kayode Jacobs, Chairman, ADC Lagos State Chapter, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the party had the capacity to win, and was not in the race to bargain with any political party in any election in Lagos, come 2019.
Jacobs said that ADC was one of the prominent political parties in Lagos and could not afford to sell out such popularity.
“ADC is all out to win many positions in the coming elections to deliver good governance whereby the resources of the state will be well utilised for the benefit of the masses.
”On the alliance among some political parties in the country, ADC alliance is only applied at the national level, the party is a part of CUPP, but no alliance at the state level.
“At the state level, we are contesting every position and we are determined to win, but at the national level, the alliance stays. We are cooperating in that regard.
”We are really strategising to win many positions in Lagos State.
“Very soon, we will inaugurate our campaign committee so that full campaign can kick off and campaigns will be taken to the nooks and crannies of Lagos State.
”ADC is a party that has come to stay even beyond 2019, ”he said.
Jacobs urged Lagos residents to support and vote for ADC, saying it would work to transform the state to a desirable one if given the mandate, come 2019.
