Nigeria News – We Don’t See Sanwo-Olu As A Threat At All – Lagos State Chapter Of PDP
In the 2019 governorship election in Lagos, the Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said the emergence of the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Babajide Sanwo-Olu would facilitate a seamless victory for the PDP.
In an interview with Daily Independent newspaper, Gani Taofik, the party’s Publicity Secretary said PDP would beat the APC and Sanwo-Olu black and blue.
Taofik also stated that the incumbent governor, Akinwunmi Ambode was rejected by Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, a national leader of the APC for the second term in office because of alleged disagreement in the sharing of the resources of Lagos State.
Taofik stated: “We don’t see Sanwo-Olu as a threat at all in the forthcoming governorship election. In fact, we will beat him and the APC black and blue. Our candidate will win him hands down because we know that the only reason why he has been presented is to be used as a conduit pipe to syphon Lagos money.
“It is obvious and in the public domain that the disagreement between Tinubu and Ambode is because of the sharing of Lagos resources. While one insisted that he must continue to get his percentage, the other said that it cannot continue and he wants development.
“So, I think Sanwo-Olu’s emergence has made our job very easy. We will beat him black and blue.”
