The upcoming governorship election will be
stiffly contested as PDP will do everything in its power to try
to 'steal' Lagos which will be a landmark success for them if
they are able to.
Like every normal Lagosian and Nigerian, we look
forward to continuity in Lagos. The normal Nigerian system is
bedevilled with successors jettisoning predecessor's projects no
matter how beneficial it is. A very significant cause of poor
PDP and APC will be the strongest contenders for
the exalted position as PDP will be hoping to win over Lagos for
the first time since 1999 while APC will be trying to retain
once again her stronghold.
Right now a lot of names from both parties have
been projected as prospective representatives. People like
Musiliu Obanikoro (PDP), Senator Gani Olarenwaju Solomon (APC),
Jimmy Agbaje (PDP) and Akinwumi Ambode (APC) to mention but a
In my Judgement, Jimmy Agbaje and Akinwumi Ambode
will make better candidates and stem healthy competition.
Then as a human being, if I am to choose between
the both, I will go for Akinwumi Ambode. His sterling academic
and public service records is breathtaking. Ambode doesn't
strike me as a regular politician, he is more of a technocrat
and that is what Lagos state and Nigeria needs.
