The Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said the emergence of Babajide Sanwo-Olu as the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has made their job “very easy”

The PDP, in a statement, expressed confidence that it will beat Sanwo-Olu “black and blue” in the 2019 governorship election in the state

The party's Publicity Secretary, Gani Taofik, in an interview with newsmen said that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, a national leader of the APC, rejected the incumbent governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, for a second term in office because of “the sharing of Lagos resources.”

He said: “We don't see Sanwo-Olu as a threat at all in the forthcoming governorship election. In fact, we will beat him and the APC black and blue. Our candidate will win him hands down because we know that the only reason why he has been presented is to be used as a conduit pipe to syphon Lagos money.

“It is obvious and in the public domain that the disagreement between Tinubu and Ambode is because of the sharing of Lagos resources. While one insisted that he must continue to get his percentage, the other said that it cannot continue and he wants development.

“So, I think Sanwo-Olu's emergence has made our job very easy. We will beat him black and blue.”
