The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Wednesday described the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) as “a dead party, not capable of capturing Lagos in 2019.”
The Assistant Publicity Secretary of the APC in the state, Mr Abiodun Salami made the remark in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria
(NAN) in Lagos.
Salami was reacting to an assertion by the Publicity Secretary of PDP in the state, Mr Taofik Gani, that the opposition party would win Lagos and take over the government in 2019.
Gani had told NAN on Tuesday that 2019 would be the beginning of the end of APC administration in the state as the party was sure of dislodging
the ruling party.
He had claimed that Lagosians were tired of the “non-performance of APC government “and were eagerly waiting to vote PDP.
“We will shock the APC in 2019. Take my words. We already have a lot of novel ideas to wrestle
governance from them.
“For now, we will keep our strategies sealed. When the game starts, we will unleash them.
“Ambode has failed in purposeful governance. The only thing we see is propaganda. Lagosians
desire a change, and that change is PDP,” Gani had said.
