Jimi Agbaje, the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP governorship candidate in Lagos State, has again described Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, as a candidate of a god father who controls Lagos affairs.
Agbaje who said this at a debate organized by The Platform for governorship candidates in Lagos State insisted that it will be difficult for the APC candidate to operate as an independent-minded governor because of the nature of his emergence as a candidate.
According to the PDP candidate, Sanwo-Olu’s loyalty, if he wins the forth-coming governorship election, will definitely not be with Lagosians. Like other governors before him since 2007, Sanwo-Olu, he argued, will not depart from the already entrenched path of his predecessors who pander to the pleasure of the god father.
Agbaje who added that his position on the issue of proxy leadership and god fatherism is well known by Lagosians warned that Lagos State can only get better when men without god fathers are elected.
Unsurprisingly, this line of argument was re-enforced by the panel of interviewers as it took Sanwo-Olu on the issue of his newness in politics and the fact that everybody thinks he is an anointed candidate.
In the days ahead also, issues around Sanwo-Olu’s emergence as a candidate and his alleged support by a god father of Lagos politics will continue to be an issue.
