ACN Writes Fashola, Wants Jonathan Advised to Reschedule His Visit to Lagos or Use Helicopter
The opposition Action Congress of Nigeria has raised concern over the planned visit of President Goodluck Jonathan to Lagos on Thursday, 18th April, saying the visit which coincides with its convention same day is capable of preventing thousands of the party’s supporters from arriving Lagos from all over the federation.
The party also said the visit of the president which may lead to the closure of all arterial roads in the city, may lead to frustration and provocation on the part of its supporters who may not have access to the venue of its convention.
In a letter written to the Lagos governor, Babatunde Fashola, by the ACN national publicity secretary, Lai Mohammed, the party said, “the timing of the president’s visit and the attendant disruption of traffic in Lagos may be perceived as a continuation of the perceived attempts by the PDP-led federal government to frustrate the merger of our party with other progressive parties, which is a key item on the agenda of our national convention on Thursday.”
Mohammed appealed to the Lagos governor to advise President Jonathan to either reschedule his visit or use helicopter so that roads would not be closed on such a busy day.
