National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has urged chieftains of the party to mobilize their supporters to vote during the April 11 governorship polls.

Tinubu also criticized the leaders for allowing the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) win five House of Representatives seats in the state during the March 28 National Assembly elections.

The APC leader stated this on Thursday, April 9, 2015 during an emergency stakeholders held at the APC Lagos Secretariat in Ikeja.

“You, the party leaders have disappointed us. For the first time, we lost five House of Representatives seats to the opposition party. This is unacceptable. It is a huge disappointment. Though in politics, you win some, you lose some, you have failed. So there is no excuse to fail this time,” Tinubu said.

“Also, you did not come out in large numbers. Were you afraid? You have no cause to be afraid as there was adequate security to protect you and your property. So don’t be intimidated by the sporadic shootings, meant to scare you away from doing your civic rights. The Hausa communities had a very good and encouraging turn-out, we expect better performance this time,” he added.

Those present at the meeting were State Chairman of the party, Henry Ajomale, Senators Oluremi Tinubu, Gbenga Ashafa and Olamilekan Adeola among others.
