The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said yesterday 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 with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) 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 Governor Akinwunmi Ambode as “dismal’’, claiming that “Lagosians are eagerly waiting for the PDP to take over and deliver purposeful leadership’’.
The party’s spokesman added: “We will shock the APC in 2019, take my words, we already have lots of novel ideas to wrest power from them.
“For now, we will keep our strategies sealed, when the game starts, we will unleash them.
“Ambode has failed in purposeful governance, what we see is propaganda and project planet, the people desire change, which is PDP.”
According to him, the party has successfully resolved its internal crisis and is working assiduously to ensure a successful primary in the state.
Gani described recent media report on the defection of 1,500 PDP members to the APC in the state as mere propaganda.
“It is laughable to hear that 1,500 PDP members decamped to APC in Oshodi, this is outrageous propaganda.
“I am from Oshodi-Isolo, the area remains the strongest nest of PDP, we won all elective offices in the 2015 general elections, in spite of the presence of the APC state chairman in the area,’’ he said.
He said the party would also embark on aggressive membership drive in 2018 to position itself for victory. (NAN)
