The Lagos State All Progressives Congress (APC) screening committee has disqualified Elijah Shina Adeosun, the only chairmanship aspirant vying for the ticket of the party in the forthcoming election against the incumbent chairman of Mushin Local Government area of the state, Hon Emmanuel Bamigboye.
Adeosun confirmed this in a telephone interview with Lagos Monitoring Team.
Also in a post on his Facebook page, Adeosun said he had accepted the decision of the party but that he was equally done with politics.
In a post titled: “No politician’s vote is worth the blood of any Nigerian citizen,” he said the decision of the screening committee came to him as a surprise.
“My friends and families, it is very sad and disheartening to announce to you that the contest today for the chairmanship position of Mushin Local Government won’t go as planned.
“A screening committee had earlier given me a clean bill and clearance to exercise my democratic right to contest.
“Surprisinsly few days ago, I saw a NOT cleared written on my name and every effort put in place to get it sorted proved abortive.
“I was told, I was swimming against the mainstream of politics in Mushin.
“At this point , I want to say thank you to everyone.
“I have put up an effort to change the world as my own little contribution to the nation called Nigeria.
“I hereby wish the incumbent a big congratulation and all the best in office.
“For me , I am done with politics,” Adeosun said.
