Arewa APC Moves Against Embattled Lagos Commissioner

Contrary to claims by embattled Lagos State Commissioner for Waterfront and Infrastructure Development, Arc. Abdullahi Kabiru that the Arewa Community demanding his sack belongs to the opposition party, the Arewa Community All Progressive Congress (APC) in the State, has unseated him as the group’s chairman.

Lifestyle Nigeria reports that days ago, some members of the Arewa Community, protested against the commissioner and demanded his removal. According to the group, the commissioner ‘failed’ to carry them along despite ‘parading’ himself as the Lagos State chairman of Arewa Community APC for 15 years.

The group described the embattled Commissioner as a dictator and stressed that they “didn’t benefit anything from him” in terms of jobs, scholarships, and alleviation of his people.

In reaction, Arc. Abdullahi had suggested that the protesters were members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and not APC Arewa.

However, in a statement made available to Lifestyle Nigeria on Saturday, the Arewa APC in Lagos State distanced themselves from the embattled Commissioner, saying they are “tired of recycling one man for over 20 years”.

The statement was signed by the Chairman Arewa Community APC, Lagos State & Chairman Arewa Community APC South-West, Saadu Yusuf Dandare.

The statement read in part, “The Arewa Community are fed up with recycling only one man being representing us for over twenty years.

“For the past twenty years Kabiru has engaged in character assassination by written petitions against the Sarkin Hausawa of Lagos, the Sarkin Fulani of Lagos, the Sarkin Agege alleging that they are the ones who killed his brother, this is a lie from the pit of hell.

“Asiwaju’s election is critical to us and is his turn to be president of nigeria come 2023, therefore all hands must be on deck because it is payback time, hence Asiwaju needs total and overwhelming victory in 2023 Insha-Allah.”

Dandare said, “Progress is impossible without change and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.”
