The Media Assistant to the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Lagos, Mr. Olayinka Sotade, has declared that Dosunmu will deliver the state to the PDP in the forthcoming elections.
He said this during a chat with Political Platform at their campaign office in Jibowu, Lagos State said that the ruling ACN has failed to affect the lives of the people for the past 12 years that the party held sway in the state because there has been no credible candidate in the past to slug it out with them, until the emergence of Dosunmu whose pedigree as an academician and an achiever is making the ruling party uncomfortable.
He added that Dosunmu is a polished politician who is not keen about rigging election or taking short-cuts but believes absolutely in due process and in the strength of the electorate to achieve his desire of rescuing Lagos from the shackles of exploitation and imperialism of the ruling ACN.
He said: â€œDosunmu has been ordained to deliver Lagos to the PDP. Imagine his pedigree as an academician and one who does not believe in do-or-die politics. I can assure you that he is not thinking about rigging elections. He is too polished and refined to imagine that as alleged by the ACN.
“He has a lot to offer and he has taken pains to reach out to everybody in the state with his constructive and issue-based campaigns,â€ he noted
Meanwhile, the governorship aspirantâ€™s campaign train has hit some parts of the state where he had gone to sell his programme to the people if elected in April.
Dosunmu described the ACN as capitalists in government who do not feel the pulse of the people as evident in their programmes which has continued to subject the people to suffering.
According to him, â€œI am on a rescue mission. I have been ordained to rescue Lagosians from the hands of the ACN in Lagos, whom I will refer to as capitalists in government. Everything they do is business.”
