Elders in the Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), have hailed President Muhammadu Buhari for declaring as illegal the tenure elongation of national and state executives.
The elders spoke through their leader, Alhaji Tajudeen Olusi, who recently led a meeting in the state’s chapter to condemn the extension.
He said the APC in the state had been vindicated by Buhari ‘s statement.
He told NAN that the state chapter was pleased that the President spoke the truth on the matter.
“We in Lagos APC are very happy that President Muhammadu Buhari has spoken the truth on the tenure elongation saga.
“This state chapter has recently called the attention of the party and that of the president to the fact that the decision to extend the tenure was against the constitution of the party and that of the country.
“We are happy that the president has examined the issue and has taken the right position.
“We want to commend him; we want to thank him, we want to congratulate him on this and we wish him all the best in the next election,” he said.
Olusi said Lagos APC would always operate in accordance with the constitution of the party.
“We are awaiting directives on the issue from the party,” he said.
