A pan Lagos Pro-democracy group, Movement for a Better Lagos has told the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in Lagos State, Mr Abdul-Azeez Olajide Adediran to burry his thought of succeeding Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu from 2023, reminding that, “Lagos is not Osun that the PDP can overrun.”
Leader of the Movement, Comrade Omolola Olukayode, in a statement in Lagos Monday was reacting to a Statement credited to JANDOR, the campaign Organization of the candidate where he asked Governor Sanwo-Olu to start preparing his handover note he will deliver to him (Adediran) after his defeat in 2023 because he will take over as the new governor after the election.
Olukayode, in his statement however described the PDP candidate as a day dreamer saying, “there is no vacancy yet in the Lagos Government House,” asserting that, “the good people of Lagos, who cherish good performance have decided to give Sanwo-Olu another term in office because one good turn should deserve another.”
The Movement leader, who stated that the people of Lagos are not prepared to change a winning team half way into the game, informed that, “they are happy, contented and are okay with Sanwo-Olu’s outstanding performance since 2019 when he mounted the gubernatorial throne in the state,” advising however, that, Mr Adediran should better wake up to reality because it appears he is day dreaming.
While admitting that day dreaming is allowed in democracy, Olukayode however hammered on the fact that, “nobody needs to be reminded that Lagos State of highly sophisticated and enlightened people is not for green horns and political kindergarten to take as an experimental trial and error practice,” warning that, “all political jesters and democratic comedians should keep off the stage.”
Concluding, he therefore urged Governor Sanwo-Olu to focus on the good job he is doing and ignore the rambling of political comedians and their distracting antics assuring him that, “the people of Lagos State are solidly behind him and his second term in office is their collective project.”
