Former Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Kofoworola Bucknor-Akerele, has said the outcome of the governorship primary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) portrayed the party as sharing similarities with a mafia organisation.

Describing the exercise as ‘absolutely disgraceful’ Bucknor-Akerele said the fact that an incumbent governor could not emerge as the party’s candidate in the primary because of the idea that “one man must be served” showed that the APC was no longer a political party.

She said, “I think it is absolutely disgraceful, what has happened in the APC because it would seem that the whole idea in the APC is that everyone should be serving one man and if you’re not ready to serve that one man, then you are out, so to speak.”

“It’s not a political party; it’s more like a mafia organisation”.
