My Removal As Safety Commission Boss Not Reason For Championing Reforms In Lagos APC – Oki
The chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC in Lagos and convener of The Broom United Movement , Mr Fouad Oki has explained why he is championing an end to reign of impunity and imposition of candidates in Lagos APC saying he was not fighting because he was sacked as Director General of Lagos State Safety Commission.
In an exclusive chat with COMPLETE NEWS on Monday, Oki said those alleging that he was fighting the system because he lost favour from the powers that be in Lagos were being mischievous.
He said he had always kicked against tyranny in the party adding that he was unmoved by his recent suspension by the state chairman, Chief Henry Ajomale.
” What does my removal as Lagos State Safety Commission boss got to do with a struggle to salvage our party from imminent ruin and perdition.
“I have always stood against tyranny. In the time of ACN, this same Chief Ajomale suspended me for speaking truth to power even as a party executive. I have a history and antecedence.
“The truth remains that our party is sick in Lagos. We need to appease everyone. The reason why i am shouting is that when the whole crisis climaxed, it is Fouad Oki that will be called upon to pacify aggrieved members for electoral victory. I did that in 2015, initially i was not the Director General of the Campaign, i was called to clean the Augean stables.
“And by the way, i was not expecting to stay forever at the Safety Commission. People will come and go. I earn a living as a consultant of international repute.
The Lagos born politician also dismissed the allegation that he was been rehabilitated by the Minister of Power, Housing and Works, Mr Babatunde Fashola in Abuja after he was sacked as Safety commission boss.
Oki said, ” People are callous. Am i now a leper who is being rehabilitated? I am busy consulting here in Abuja. I have a robust high profile clientele”.
