PDP Lagos, Reacts To Sanwo-Olu’s Victory In The APC Primaries
Speaking with news men yesterday, Gani Taofik, the party’s publicity secretary, said PDP would find it easy to beat Sanwo-Olu and the APC black and blue in the governorship elections.
He also said, that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, national leader of the APC, rejected the incumbent governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, for a second term in office because of alleged disagreement in the sharing of the state’s resources.
His words: “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 siphon 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.”
Naija News recalls however that, Governor Ambode yesterday congratulated his keen contender, Sanwo-Olu, on his emergence as the APC governorship candidate, while promising to support his ambition towards the elections.
