Jandor Is A Certified Dunce – Babatunde Gbadamosi
Babatunde Gbadamosi has shared what he thinks about the PDP Governorship candidate, Abdul Azeez Adediran a.k.a Jandor .
Naija News NG reports that Mr Gbadamosi in his tweets called Jandor a dunce and poured encomiums on Labour Party’s Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour . Read his words below :
Jandor was at my home a few months ago, seeking my support, having “won” the PDP ticket. I asked for his manifesto, & his answer was, “we will build the Lagos of our dreams”. Asked to define that, he said “a Lagos where Lagosians will be in charge of their commonwealth”.
Prodded further, he had NOTHING ELSE! Asked for his manifesto, he retorted that a teammwete still writing it! I, Babatunde Gbadamosi, should come & join his team of “teknorats”, to help write his manifesto.
How am I expected to line up behind such a dunce?
The next thing I see is the dagini-dooro, agunmaniye, on @ARISEtv, trying to leverage my personal circumstances for political gain.
Eventually, we will know what REALLY influenced his choice of deputy, beyond the 20m Trinidadians, Bots, Bayelsans, and Kanawas
Babatunde Gbadamosi also said he purposely made it look like he was going to run to ensure that Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour runs.
After all was said and done, I compared that meeting to several chance meetings I’d had in the past with @GRVlagos, and it was a no brainer. Gbadebo himself had no clue that I was not going to run. I deliberately gave him the impression that I might, just to ensure that HE did.
I was scared stiff of having no choice but to support a certified dunce, and I’m glad today that Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, a genuine son of the soil, intelligent, highly skilled, passionate, intrepid and committed youth is on the ballot
Recession Caused By Jonathan’s Government Why Buhari Failed On Student Loans -Keyamo
Speaking on Channels Television, Festus Keyamo, Spokesperson of the Tinubu Campaign Council explained why APC didn’t deliver on student loans .
Naija News NG reports that he said recession caused by the Goodluck Jonathan government is the reason the student loans Bola Tinubu promised Nigerians in 2015 wasn’t delivered in President Muhammadu’s government.
Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate for 2023, had in a 2014 Lagos rally promised that the APC government would offer “student loan” if elected.
“In 2014, no less a person than Okonjo-Iweala, who was then Minister of Finance, told everyone that we are headed to recession. So we did not give that excuse, it was the PDP government that said at the time they were leaving that the country was on a downward slide towards recession and that was in 2013 and 2014,” Mr Keyamo said.
He went on to state that, “Now what happened, therefore, was that we came in and met that recession and then the country slid into recession.”
“Then we now met low oil production that dropped to 700 barrels per day at times 600 barrels per day when we should have been at 2.3 million barrels per day. We met those problems on ground, so there was a problem of revenue, but the dream remained alive.
“The dream to fulfil these promises are still alive today as we begin to ramp up our revenues and rescue the economy where PDP left the economy and that is where we are now.”
Mr Tinubu unveiled his campaign policy document on Friday, promising to build on Mr Buhari’s legacy, however, the failure of APC to deliver on some of its 2015 campaign promises has raised doubts on whether Mr Tinubu will deliver if elected.
