The battle of words continued unabated between the Lagos governorship candidates of the All Progressives Congress, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, and the Peoples Democratic Party, Jimi Agbaje on Friday as the APC aspirant promised to end the political career of his opponent.
Sanwo-Olu also stated he was proud of being called a puppet of the National Leader of the party whilst adding he has the capability to lead Lagosians.
He spoke while reacting to a statement by Agbaje, in which the latter described him as a puppet with rebuttal released by his media team.

The APC candidate said he sympathised with Agbaje over the “imminent disgraceful defeat awaiting him at the March 2 poll, and consequent retirement from four years electoral cycle contest.”
The reply reads, “Sanwo-Olu described Agbaje’s recent vituperation, where he described him as a puppet to the national leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, as a not only complimentary but an affirmation of the notion that he is the most experienced for the job, having been properly schooled in the art and science of governance.

“He further reminded Mr Agbaje and his co-travellers in the journey of political ignominy of an incontrovertible fact that he (Mr Sanwo-Olu) has been part of the progressive social, economic and political trajectory of modern Lagos, which started with Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and was passed on to the actualiser, Mr Babatunde Fashola, who in turn handed over to the incumbent governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode, for consolidation.
“Mr Sanwo-Olu’s private and public experience is not what the likes of Jimi Agbaje could buy over a supermarket shelf, and would take them at least two decades of quality experience to place them on the same pedestal like him,” the statement said.
