Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Governorship Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, in his response to Jimi Agbaje, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who recently called him the puppet of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, says that he is proud to be Tinubu’s puppet.
According to Sanwo-Olu being the puppet of the APC National Leader meant that he had learnt the art and science of governance.
Sanwo-Olu however in the statement said he sympathize 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 APC candidate said in the statement issued by his media team.
