CAMPAIGNS for tomorrow’s National Assembly elections got messier on Thursday, in Lagos, with allegations that a prominent politician had induced some leaders of an opposition party to destabilise the state.
He was accused of deploying a whopping sum of N3 billion for the hatchet job so that a formidable opposition party could take over Lagos.
In a separate text message sent to Lagosians under a portal, Lagos Voters, the Labour Party (LP) was quoted as alleging that some forces once planned to remove the state governor, Mr Babatunde Fashola from office not long ago, because of his principled stand on transparency.
The party said the National Assembly election provided the veritable opportunity for the people to effect a proper change by voting for its candidates to the House of Assembly to guarantee a break from the past.
In another development, LP has urged the electorate to reject the other ACN candidates except Governor Fashola at the poll, because, according to the party, they were not products of genuine party primaries.
According to the party, they were either selected or imposed on other party members by an influential quarter.
The party urged voters to cast their votes for its candidates so that the citizens could liberate themselves from dictatorship.
One of the texts reads, “Vote Labour Party for Senate, House of Representatives and House of Assembly. Labour supports Fashola for governor.”
