Salvador on Saturday said APC will defeat PDP in Lagos woefully because the opposition party is broke and cannot fund its campaigns, thereby showing a sign of early failure in the forthcoming elections.Salvador said this while speaking with The Independent on Saturday.
According to him, the ruling APC would win because Lagosians has lost hope in PDP and cannot be trusted.
“PDP cannot in any way match to APC because from the look of things, the party does not exist in the State anymore.
We are going to deliver one million votes to the party in Lagos. I know that the people are already working assiduously to ensure that we achieve that and continue to give good governance to our people, through our next level agenda.PDP is not a party to trust, it has failed the people and the people in turn have rejected it.
The party’s inability to campaign in the state is also an indication that it has accepted defeat ahead of the forthcoming general elections,” Salvador said.
Following the exchange of words between former Lagos State governor, Bola Tinubu, and the Minister of State for Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro, the Lagos State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has vowed to repel any action aimed at blackmailing or attacking any of its members.
Mr. Tinubu had criticised Mr. Obanikoro for spending more time in Ekiti, where Mr. Tinubu’s party recently lost a governorship election to the PDP, than in Chibok where over 200 schoolgirls were kidnapped almost three months ago, and remain missing.
A statement issued on Thursday in Lagos by the spokesperson of PDP in Lagos, Taofik Gani, described Mr. Tinubu’s statement on the minister as “not only irrational, but a clear sign of a frustrated, diseased blackmailer and desperate emperor who wants to hold on to southwest and Lagos State in particular.
“On our part, we shall not underestimate the desperation of Tinubu. We, however, promise him that no hatchet plot against any of our members shall prosper,” Mr. Gani stated.The Lagos State PDP asked.
Tinubu to come to terms with ‘the new political realities’ in the Southwest and Lagos in particular. One of such is to accept the expiration of his control and the political superiority of Senator Obanikoro to defeat him in a free and fair election,” Mr. Gani said.
