Governorship hopeful Olajide Adediran, aka Jandor, has said that Lagosians deserve an independent-thinking governor.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) gubernatorial candidate was quoted by news media outlet The CableJandor, stating that a governor that doesn’t “require second-level approval to get things done” must be elected.
Jandor was quoted saying: “For me, I don’t want to be that governor that will require second-level approval to get things done, because the ones you are having can’t do anything on their own. Ambode, Sanwo-Olu, and even Fashola.
“These are good men, but being a good man is not enough. We need an independent governor, one who can think for himself and make good his promises to the people.”
Jandor also blamed the Lagos state government for using the thugs as instruments used by the political elites in the state to cause mayhem..
He added: “When people come to tell me, Agbero is terrorizing us in Lagos, I say ‘No’, it is not Agbero that is terrorizing us, it is our government that is terrorizing us because if they want Agberos to stop in Lagos today, it will stop.
“It is their own policy that is bringing Agberos out and making Lagos unrest for people. They have intimidated people from joining the process and they take over all the polling units. “If you win at the polling unit, they change it at the collation centre, but with the BVAS and the electronic transmission, you will see the beating that APC will take in this election.”
