You’re a common cameraman, you can’t be governor – Fashola lashes out at Jandor

Olajide Adediran (Jandor), a PDP candidate for governor, has been chastised by former Lagos State governor Babatunde Fashola, who claims that just because he works as a cameraman for the governor, he lacks the qualifications to hold that office.

During Fashola’s tenure as governor, Jandor worked as a reporter for Lagos Television, covering the State House and occasionally handling the camera during the governor’s events.

He rose to prominence while covering Fashola, as many believed the former governor helped him get to where he is now.

Jandor moved to Abuja with Fashola and later set up camp with former FIRS official Tunde Fowler, where he makes ‘good money.’

On Thursday, however, at the formal launch of his Eko O ni baje 10,000 Foot Soldiers for Tinubu/Shettima and Sanwo-Olu/Hamzat initiative, Fashola slammed his former ‘boy,’ saying he lacked the qualities required to be governor of Lagos.

Fashola took a swipe at him subtly by saying: “Some people say they will take the land from us, that is too much. I did the job of Governor for eight years and part of what helped me was that I was chief of staff to the Governor, even that was not enough.

“So just following a Governor being a cameraman (Jandor) and then watching me for eight years then you think you will now be a governor, you are not ready, come to our leadership school, you are not yet ready.

“That is why you will see that they are focusing on the 51 billon naira Lagos State is generating. You did not see the immigrant population that is coming into Lagos everyday. The bigger the prosperity, the bigger the problem. Their party don’t see people, they don’t see the problem.”

However, Fashola, who is the Minister of Works and Housing encouraged members of APC to canvas massively for the party, telling them to vote for the party.

Speaking, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu said nobody has the credential like Tinubu to become president, noting that Lagos would deliver the largest vote for APC.

“ I want to thank our Minister and all those who have worked with him, especially his 10,000 foot soldiers. That five million vote will come out.

Tinubu is the best for Nigeria. Nobody has a credential like Tinubu to become President, that is why we truly believe in him. We will deliver the largest number for our Presidential candidate,” he said.

Sanwo-Olu stated that the Lagos State Government would from this weekend begin to distribute food packs to cushion the effect of Naira and Fuel scarcity which Lagosians are facing, because his government cared more about the people, saying “it is not for politics sake.”

Speaker, Lagos State House of Assembly, Mudashiru Obasa urged party faithful and supporters of the party to be dedicated, committed in enlightening and educating others on the importance of the election, describing the event as crucial to disseminating information about the electoral process.

Deputy Governor, Obafemi Hamzat enjoined parents to enlighten their wards, especially youths on the need to vote for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu whose candidature has a pedigree based on his developmental strides as a former Governor of Lagos State.
