Jandor Heads To Supreme Court To Challenge Sanwo-Olu’s Election As Lagos Governor

Lagos 2023: Jandor Blasts Wike For Endorsing Sanwo-Olu

by Victor Ndubuisi

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for governor Olajide Adeniran, also known as Jandor, has criticized Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike for supporting his counterpart in Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, for reelection.

Remember that despite his party (PDP) nominating Jandor as its candidate for governor, Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike on Tuesday endorsed Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos.

Widespread reactions followed Wike’s decision to support the governor of another party, with PDP members criticizing him and APC members applauding him.

On Channels Television on Wednesday, Jandor said he wasn’t shocked that Wike supported Sanwo-Olu.


He said that the governor of Rivers State rejected him during the party’s Lagos governorship primary because he lacked structure at that time.

Jandor asserts that if Wike had performed his duties properly, he would not have supported the governor of Lagos State.

According to the PDP candidate for governor, Sanwo-Olu has completed no projects in his three years as governor and has no justification for Wike’s support.

Jandor said: “During my primary, he did not buy my form. He was supporting somebody else in Lagos because he needed structure to win (PDP presidential primary). I don’t have that structure.

“They had done all the structures in the PDP before my coming, and I said to him in the presence of governor Seyi Makinde that ‘your friend is not supporting me in Lagos.’ I repeated it when I went to Port Harcourt.

“That was before the primary. He said he was supporting somebody else, and I understood why he was supporting someone else because I didn’t have anything at that time.


“But today, I picked that ticket with all his might within the PDP, and I’m the candidate of the party today. I don’t think I have done anything wrong for him to bring such treatment to Lagos, and I see how APC was jumping up and down because of that.

“If for anything, that brought a lot of sympathy because you will never expect a party man, a governor of a state in our party for that matter, a national leader, will come and do that for any reason at all.

“This governor Wike that came to Lagos saying somebody has performed let me ask him how many times has this governor invited him to come to Lagos to commission a project or any governor at all, the way he (Wike) is commissioning up and down.

“For the four years of the governor, he has never commissioned one single project. In Ambode’s tenure, three years, we saw Abule Egba flyover, Ajah flyover, airport international road, and the bypass.

“This government — nothing to show for everything they have done. Yet, their budget in 2020, according to them, performed 88 percent; in 2021, performed 86 percent; and in 2022, for half of the year, it is on 77 percent — both revenue and expenditure.

“Yet, nothing to show for it. What are you celebrating? You just want to come to Lagos and do to that on nothing. If he had done his assignment very well, I don’t think he would have said that person was performing.”
