Jimi Agbaje, the Governorship Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, has described Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Governorship Candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), as a puppet.
The PDP Lagos candidate described the APC candidate as “a proxy candidate, a puppet, fronting for well-entrenched interests that have held back the development of the state for the past 20 years.”
No doubt Agbaje is referring to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, a former Governor of Lagos State, who is currently the National Leader of the ruling APC.
Mr. Sanwo-Olu had at the rally on the Lagos Island on Tuesday stated that Agbaje lacks clear ideas on how to manage Lagos State.
“This is a man without any specialty, tossed from one ministry to another before ending up in the housing corporation, where his tenure in that agency has added nothing towards improving the state’s world-acclaimed housing deficit.”
Agbaje also dismissed the statement by the APC candidate who told supporters that the state had in 20 years recorded giant strides which could be reversed should Agbaje become governor.
Sanwo-Olu “is not a standalone candidate, but a proxy who is only being propped up by some godfathers whose prime interest and motives are to further plunder the resources of the state,” Agbaje said.
