The All Progressives Congress (APC) Lagos State Gubernatorial Candidate, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu has described his opponent, Mr Jimi Agbaje of being out of touch with reality, adding that he would retire the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Flagbearer from politics.
In a statement issued by his media team which was a reaction to Mr Agbaje’s statement which called the Sanwo-Olu names including being a a puppet of APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Sanwo- Olu stated that he sympathised 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 vituperation, 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.
Mr Sanwo-Olu’s private and public experience is not what the likes of Jimi Agbaje could buy over a supermarket shelf, and would take them at least two decades of quality experience to place them on the same pedestal like him,” the statement said.
The statement berated Agbaje for promising to spend 50 per cent of the state’s budget on education, saying he was a learner for leaving out several critical areas of daily existence.
