A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) from Lagos State, Chief Lanre Rasaq has said the clamour for a third force is not in the interest of the country.

According to him, politicians promoting the agenda for a political third force were doing so to achieve a selfish economic agenda.

In an interview with NewTelegraph, Razaq said: “Who are the brains behind the third force that will attract people to team up with them? This is not the first time somebody who has name would be clamouring for a better society, they will accuse politicians as not being good and that if they are given opportunity, they will get this and that done.

“Those who are not in government are quick at running down the government in power, let them join a political party or raise their third force and see what will happen. I am a member of the APC and I believe the party will do better things for Nigeria.

“They are saying these things because of their personal economic reasons; their personal agenda which they have tried and couldn’t realize in any party.

“APC still remains the best option Nigerians can bank on and it will deliver under the Buhari administration.”
