The Conference Of Registered Political Parties (CRPP) Lagos State, has expressed satisfaction in the electoral process that led to the emergence of Lagos State Governor-Elect, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, describing it as not only peaceful and fair but credible.
The body during a World Press Conference held Friday, however, condemned the call for cancellation of the exercise based on unfounded rumour that the Lagos State Governor-Elect is not in his sound mind.
While describing such development as emanating from some quarters and enemies of progress who do not mean well for Lagos State but thrive in spreading fake news, the group declared that it will not accept any form of character assassination of the Governor-Elect.
Led by its Chairman, Engineer Fatai Taiwo, the body which comprises over 65 political parties also frowned at what it described as campaign of calumny using the pages of news papers, and sponsored on-line media as the altar of justice for the just concluded election by some group of people.
The group also expressed displeasure at the recent media attack against the independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). It alleged that such could only come from those who have added no value to the polity of Lagos State and would stop at nothing to pull the state down.
This was as it appealed to those who are not pleased with the outcome of the election to sheath their sword and let peace reign, as it will not “tolerate any more media attack on the “PROJECT LAGOS” a project of the Lagos of our dream”.
Meanwhile, with his inauguration just few days away, the group congratulated Sanwo-Olu and all persons that won election at various levels in Lagos State, saying selfless service to the people of the state should be their watch word and guiding principles.
The group also extolled the virtues of the national leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu for his selfless service and unrelented determination to the massive development of Nigeria as a whole and Lagos State in particular.
While stating that the group is happy to identify with the Lagos state former governor, It stressed that the victory of the ruling party in the election showed that nobody can dare query his paranormal intelligence.
