Lagos 2019: See How Sanwo-Olu Responded To Been Called Tinubu’s Puppet

Sanwo-Olu sworn in as Lagos State Governor
 

The Lagos governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has said that he is proud of being called a puppet of the national leader of the party, Bola Tinubu, adding that it meant he had mastered the art and science of governance.

Naija News learnt that Sanwo-Olu said this while reacting to a statement by the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Jimi Agbaje, in which the latter described him as a puppet.

The APC candidate who promised to retire his rival after the March 2 election, in a statement by his media team, said he sympathized with Agbaje over the “imminent disgraceful defeat awaiting him at the March 2 poll, and consequent retirement from four years electoral cycle contest.”

“Sanwo-Olu described Agbaje’s recent statement, where he described him as a puppet to the national leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, as a not only complimentary, but an affirmation of the notion that he is the most experienced for the job, having been properly schooled in the art and science of governance.

“He further reminded Mr Agbaje and his co-travellers in the journey of political ignominy of an incontrovertible fact that he (Mr Sanwo-Olu) has been part of the progressive social, economic and political trajectory of modern Lagos, which started with Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and was passed on to the actualiser, Mr Babatunde Fashola, who in turn handed over to the incumbent governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode, for consolidation.
