LP Factional Chairman, Apapa Gives Condition To Meet With Tinubu
Alhaji Bashiru Lamidi Apapa

The factional chairman of the Labour Party, Lamidi Apapa, has given conditions under which he would honour an invitation from the country’s President-elect, Bola Tinubu.

Apapa, while answering questions on Arise TV on Thursday, said he would only meet with Tinubu if the party approved it.

“Before I honour him, I will consult the executive of the party, so if they ask me to go ahead, I will do so. If the executive says go ahead, it becomes our position.

“It’s not going to be my position. If they say go and see him or we are going to see him, it becomes the position of the party, not the position of Alhaji Bashiru Lamidi Apapa.

“All of us will collectively go and see him. That is, if we have the mandate of the house, that we are going to see him,” he said.
