PDP to capture Lagos in 2019 gubernatorial election
The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has announced that it will capture Lagos in the 2019 governorship election.
The opposition party’s Publicity Secretary in the state, Taofeek Gani, made the declaration in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos, on Tuesday.
Gani said: “We will shock the All Progressives Congress (APC) by winning next year’s governorship election in Lagos.’’
He maintained that 2019 will mark the beginning of the end of the APC-led government in Lagos state.
The party secretary revealed that the party has devised strategies to dethrone the ruling APC, adding that “With the new spirit in PDP in Lagos, we are sure of winning in 2019.’’
Describing the performance of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode as ‘dismal,’ Gani asserted that “Lagosians are eagerly waiting for the PDP to take over and deliver purposeful leadership. We will shock the APC in 2019, take my words! We already have lots of novel ideas to wrestle them from power.
He went on to say that “For now, we will keep our strategies sealed; when the game starts, we will unleash them.
“Ambode has failed in purposeful governance, what we see is propaganda and project planet, the people desire change, which is PDP.”
Gani alleged that recent media reports on the decamping of 1,500 PDP members to the APC in the state are mere propaganda.
“It is laughable to hear that 1,500 PDP members decamped to APC in Oshodi, this is outrageous propaganda.
“I am from Oshodi-Isolo, and the area remains the stronghold of the PDP. We won all the legislative and governorship elections in that area, during the 2015 general election, despite the fact that the APC state chairman is from there.’’
He also said PDP will carry out an aggressive membership drive, in2018, to position itself for victory during the 2109 elections.
