Lagos not under bondage - Sanwo-Olu replies Agbaje lailasnews


Babajide Sanwo-Olu who is the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the state, spoke on Sunday during a visit to the Akran of Badagry, Aholu De Wheno Menu Toyi 1. The APC governorship candidate who reacted to Agbaje’s allegation of the destruction of his campaign billboards by some hoodlums on Saturday, asked residents to “reject the slavery mentality that the PDP represents”.

He said, “Some have started talking about freedom and insinuated that Lagos is in bondage. Unfortunately, we cannot begin to talk about freedom in the 21st century. This is insulting to humanity and the people of Lagos especially because slavery and bondage were abolished in Badagry several decades ago.

“When they talk about freedom, we ask them freedom from what? We have had our freedom and everyone in Lagos is free. We have since moved away from the era of slavery to era of prosperity with deep-seated aspiration for a greater Lagos.”

Sanwo-Olu who was also queried on the allegation by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode that he was caught with fake American dollars in a night club, said;

“A lot has been said about this particular incident and I am going to say it straight again. All of these never happened. I am sure; I have said it and I am going to say it again.”

  21. Politicians. They look for something not properly done by their rivals and tag it a bad name.

  22. This should no be surprising to us considering the fact that we are very close to elections and people may want to damage the image of others

  23. Lol as if they are talking to 2 years old. We all know what is going on in Lagos. Call it slavery or not

  24. We all know all these talk are political but truly Lagos is in bondage because it a state that is own by just one man.

  25. Lagos is free and not under bondage but this is politics, a candidate must try to servely oppose his opponent.

  26. To be plain without any bias,Lagos state is under bondage by one man called himself Godfather.He even declared his own winner before election

  27. Politics politics, hmm this politics of a thing, every politician is using politics to make money

  28. This is merely a political tactics and the motive is just to get the support of some gullible people in the society,and thank God there are no such people in our society.

  29. Saying that LAGOS needs to be freed is only s political strategy. Because as far as I’m concerned, Lagos still happens to be one of the best states in Nigeria

  30. Why does politicians say bad things about their opinions, they will always find faults so that people can hate them……is that the best thing to do

  31. Politicians and their way of painting the other person black, they should stop all this and work for a better tomorrow

  32. Hmm few days ago they both wish themselves luck now , they are attacking eachother . That’s politics for sure

  33. In politics, there are no permanent Enemies..after the election…we won’t be surprised..seeing the two of them together publicly

  34. We not in bondage like u said but the freedom to protest in not there at all, we need that freedom because u people are being unfair.

  35. there’s nothing like bondage in Lagos state, Mr Jimmy Agbaje should stop all this trash, and find another thing to use for campaign.

  36. Even an ordinary man knows that Lagos has never been in bondage. Politics is a game if you know how to play it..left for lagosian to go their choices

  37. The game of politics is such that you cant predict nobody from their words.
    Lagos is sure not in slavery nor bondage, but all we Ned is someone to continue the good work of governance

  38. Nigeria is a country that is blessed with talented political and ambitious politicians that will go as far as trying to grid other opponent ambition of becoming the next leader of a particular position, so I see this as a political strategy for trying to play save to win their political interest, there is nothing like bondage…

  39. Our politicians should learn how to engage in issue based campaigns rather than character defarmation or slandering of their opponents.

  40. I don’t Lagos is in bondage. Well all na political campaign. But why did the opposition party destroy his campaign billboard. Dats not fair.

  41. Political game and strategy, if not what else would he say…citizens should just be wise who they vote for that’s all.

  42. You politicians keep bickering, accusing each other of one thing or the other, rubbishing someone else doesn’t make you any better.

  43. Politics is such that what actually bothers the people is resolved but something that totally doesn’t make any sense. Someone is coming up with lagos is in bondage , what nonsense !

  44. I strongly feel Lagos state is in bondage. This is because the politics of Lagos is currently being directed by only one person (Tinubu).

  45. ddont give a different interpretation…you and i know lagos under political bondage….we all understand

  46. Politician can manipulate people oh…ok oh….tell us how the bondage will dissapear once you become the governor of Lagos state…

  47. Sanwo-olu is talking nonsense..how can one man be the dictator of things happening in the south west… that is bondage.

  48. Lane man knows that Lagos has never been in bondage. Politics is a game if you know how to play it.

  49. This is called political damnation, they just want to get the best out of another mans weakness, and possibly destroy his political dream…and that’s bad

  50. One thing with politicians is that they will keep fighting each other for power, good image and money.

  51. All these politicians can say anything to tarnish the image of their opponents and also to gain the trust of the people

  52. It’s not a new story that rats now invade homes of people and cause various kinds of havoc and problems in their homes. It’s time to be more cautious about things around us to reduce the dangerous that lay ahead of us.

  53. Samwo olu might be right in his judgment that Lagos state is not in bondage and the country as well

  54. Agbaje is right, Lagos is under bondage in the hands of tinubu, and this is really affecting Lagos as a state

  55. Slavery from PDP indeed.
    Did the people in APC fell from the sky?
    They have changed their names and want us to believe that they are new people

  56. Same bird of the same feather none of you a good mind for us its only God will take us from you so called politics

  57. We can’t be deceived, Lagos was never in bondage and even if it were, you won’t be the one to save them. Election pranks

  58. This is typical Nigeria political war..they rely on defamation rather than engage in positive views to change the society..when we will learn and be civilized enough to grow like other nations… Nigerians are wise now and knows the truth…our PVC will speak for us simple..

  59. Politicians can say or do anything to getvwhat they want
    Let’s hope the best wins but personally I think Sanwo is a better man let’s forget the fake dollars talk

  60. This people are in sin you guy’s should just stop all this things cause on the day of election we know our mind.

  61. 2019 election is coming up so there is no doubt in seeing all kind of things, just to gain power. More as to be done on Nigeria politics
