Lagos: Jandour restates status ahead of Saturday guber poll, promise breath of fresh air
The Governorship Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, Dr. Abdul-Azeez Olajide Adediran aka Jandor has urged the residents of the state to vote for him in the Saturday March 18, 2023 election, saying that he would give the state a breath of fresh air.
Jandor, who said that he has not stepped down for the candidate of any other political party, added that his government would turn the state around if he is elected into office.
Speaking at a press conference in his office on Thursday, Jandor stated that no candidate of the party has ever campaigned the way he has campaigned in the last few months.
“Lagos PDP is not in alliance with any political party, all Nigerians should vote for the PDP in the election. The rumour in come quarters that I stepped down for the candidate of another party is false.
“We are not in alliance with any political party. As the candidate of the party, I am not stepping down for anybody. No candidate has ever worked the way we have worked.
“We traversed everywhere in the state and this is a radical departure from what had been done in the past. Lagosians should take a critical look at all of us running for the office. That is why it is called general election, it is no longer an intra-party election,” he said.
Jandor added that with the February 25, 2023 Presidential Elections, especially in Lagos, the people of the state should see the election as very important, adding that it is about electing the Governor that is independent and who understands the nitty gritty of the state.
“This election is about giving Lagos a breath of fresh air. It is about time we did something else in Lagos State.
“Jandor, as an individual, since 2016, alongside other colleagues of mine on this journey, we have been on the streets of Lagos creating awareness, doing everything and we have been consistent and focused.
“We stood by our demands. We should look at the records of the contestants on their merits and take a decision.
“Of course, I have been noticing some cross -carpeting from the APC to the PDP and from Labour Party to the PDP and then to whatever. This is the season, which is why it is called general election,” he said.
