The Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has disowned Sen. Tokunbo Afikuyomi in a statement its publicity secretary, Mr. Joe Igbokwe, released.
Afikuyomi, a former Lagos governorship aspirant, had all along been in the same parties with Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu right from their days in AD.
He is also known to be Tinubu’s confidant . However, in the statement Igbokwe issued on Friday, APC said Afikuyomi was involved in alleged underground anti-party activities, a precursor to his defection to the Accord Party.
It reads in part: “Afikuyomi’s activities and his pretension of being an APC member. “While we believe it is within the rights of Afikuyomi to work for any interest that suits his fancy, we feel obliged to warn faithful and loyal APC members that Afikuyomi is not one of us, contrary to the impression he gives to unsuspecting party members.
“While we don’t begrudge Afikuyomi his rights to choose and work for any platform or candidate of his choice, we warn him to desist from claiming to be a member of our great party and proudly own up to the interest of whomever he is working for.
“We know Afikuyomi as a member of the Accord Party and the Lagos State exco of APC does not know him as one of us, as we are aware he has left our party for Accord Party.
“We, therefore, alert members of our party and anyone dealing with Afikuyomi to clearly know that he is not a member of the APC.”
