The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said on Tuesday it would capture Lagos in the 2019 governorship election. The PDP Publicity Secretary in the state, Mr Taofeek Gani made the assertion in an interview in Lagos. “We will shock the All Progressives Congress (APC) by winning the governorship election in Lagos in 2019,’’ Gani said. According to him, 2019 will be the beginning of the end of the APC-led government in the state.
Gani said the party had mapped out strategies to unseat the ruling party, adding “with the new spirit in PDP in Lagos, we are sure of winning in 2019’’. He described the performance of Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode as “dismal’’, claiming that “Lagosians are eagerly waiting for the PDP to take over and deliver purposeful leadership’’.
