A chieftain of People's Democratic Party, PDP in Alimosho local government area of Lagos state, Prince (Dr) Adedipe Dauda Ewenla has replied the minister of Housing and Works, Babatunder Fasola over his statement on the gubernatorial candidate of People's Democratic Party, PDP in Lagos state, Abdulazeez ‘Jandor’ Adediran. 

It could be recalled that The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, took a swipe at the governirship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos, Abdulazeez ‘Jandor’ Adediran.

Mr Fashola, a former governor of the state, said the main opposition candidate lacks the experience to govern Lagos, in a video posted by Gboyega Akosile, the state’s chief press secretary on Thursday.

The minister spoke during the formal launch of ‘10,000 foot soldiers’ for Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Replying Fasola, PDP chieftain in Alimosho, Prince Dr. Adedipe Dauda Ewenla said, "Being a camera man can neither disqualified Adeniran Jandor to be governor not affect his performances if elected.  

" Only Almighty God knows who will become the next governor of Lagos state, not Fasola or anyone..." Said Adedipe Ewenla 

Meanwhile, The PDP governership candidate in Lagos has replied Babatunde Fashola, the minister of works and housing on his claim that the candidate was a cameraman, and therefore lacks the experience to govern the state.

Abdulazeez ‘Jandor’ Adediran in a series of tweets on Thursday described his former boss’ comment as “disparaging.”

In a video posted by Gboyega Akosile, the chief press secretary to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the former governor of Lagos had said Mr Adediran’s experience as his cameraman does not qualify him to govern Lagos.

He said that the media consultant needs to join the state’s leadership school to understand governance.


In his reaction on Thursday, Mr Adediran said Mr Fashola’s comment did not come as a surprise to him.

“Well, while this may come as a shock to many, who may have heard me speak well of him and his achievements in Lagos, despite being the flagbearer of the main opposition party in the same Lagos, let me quickly signpost a reminder that this is the season of calumnies and the APC are expectedly under pressure to sell their unenviable records to the now very discerning electorates of Lagos,” he said.

Mr Adediran said: “I was never a cameraman,” adding, however, that “there is absolutely nothing untoward about being a cameraman…”

Mr Adediran explained that he was “absorbed into the service of government of Lagos State Broadcasting Service as a Reportorial and Editorial Executive, and camera handling was certainly not the professional services I rendered to BRF, and the Lagos state government under his watch.”

“I really don’t know what it is with my Oga (Boss) and cameras lately…this is reminding me of that famous missing camera he magically found at Lekki toll gate, the scene of the Endsars massacre.”

He noted that “a lot” can be achieved with the state’s N50 billon revenue if the state is governed by an independent governor.

“We will break Lagos free and my boss, BRF will be proud of our achievements,” he said.
