The National Chairman of Action Alliance, Dr. Tunde Anifowose-Kelani, has warned that the impeachment move against Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State might be self-destructive for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The chairman in a statement on Thursday, described the plot as unwise and said it could result in APC losing Lagos in the upcoming gubernatorial election.
He advised the party to quickly resolve the crisis between the governor and the state legislature.
“It is sheer callousness and abject insensitivity with selfishness for anyone to think of impeaching Governor Ambode after he was denied the second term opportunity.
“Ambode, being a gentlemen, took the slight in good faith and with humility.
“The fact that he was denied a second-term ticket does not mean that Lagosians are sleeping at all .
“They are watching as events unfold, and for a group of people to embarrass the governor, it shall meet high resistance with Lagosians’ votes.
“We, hereby, call on the leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to caution and lecture the political opportunists with immediate effect on the adverse effect of their negative intention on APC in the state.
“We appeal to those involved to stop the impeachment threat or face mass mobilization of voters against their elections in the state,” he said.
