The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Lagos State , Mr Jimi Agbaje , has described his All Progressive candidate opponent Mr Babajide Sanwo -Olu , as a puppet incapable of making his own decisions.
Agbaje spoke while responding to a statement credited to the APC candidate this week that sought to paint the PDP candidate as lacking clear ideas on how to manage the state .
Sanwo – Olu had at a rally on the Lagos Island on Tuesday mocked Agbaje , dismissing him as lacking requisite ideas needed for the development of the state and urged the people to reject him at the polls .
In a statement by the Media Office of Jimi Agbaje Campaign Organisation , the PDP candidate dismissed Sanwo -Olu 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 .”
The PDP candidate said , “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 urged Lagosians to reject Sanwo -Olu and the APC at the elections , adding that the political party was a leopard that could not change its tendency to inflict misery and suffering on the masses .
The APC candidate had also reportedly told his audience that the state had in the last 20 years recorded giant strides , capable of being reversed should Agbaje be elected governor .
However , Agbaje faulted Sanwo -Olu ’s assertions , urging Lagosians to rather reject a man who “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 .”
