Lagos too important for us to lose, APC tells PDP
The All Progressives Congress in Lagos State warned the People’s Democratic party not to dream of take over the state in 2023.
In a statement by it’s Publicity Secretary, Seye Oladejo, the party said Lagos is too important to APC and that the party cannot lose it.
According to Oladejo, the PDP’s victory in the Osun governorship poll is not possible in Lagos.
He was reacting to the claim by the PDP governorship candidate, Jide Adediran, also known as Jandor, that his party would take over Lagos as it has done in Osun in the coming 2023 elections.
In his response, Oladejo said, “Our attention has been drawn to the naive and infantile response of the Lagos State PDP gubernatorial candidate, Jide Adediran, to the outcome of the recently held Osun State governorship election.
“While we acknowledge the right to celebrate an unexpected, opportunistic and unaccustomed euphoria, as a result of the election, the excitement was taken to a ridiculous level by day-dreaming of winning the governorship election in Lagos State.”
Saying that the PDP should not equate the forthcoming 2023 governorship election in Lagos, with the PDP primaries, the APC spokesman said that Jandor and his Nollywood actress deputy, Funke Akindele, cannot add value to PDP.
“The governance of a model state like Lagos is too important to be entrusted to some daydreamers, who have absolutely nothing to offer.
“While Lagos residents celebrate the landmark and award-winning achievements of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu across various sectors with focus on the THEMES mantra, your hope to win the election can only be a mirage.
“It is certainly unnatural for the civilised and cosmopolitan citizens of Lagos to be tired of the various developmental strides, and the prospects of doing more in the years ahead.
“As we count down to the elections, the governorship/ deputy governorship debates will be an interesting spectacle,” Oladejo added
