“Lagosians desire a change, and that change is PDP.”
But Salami described the assertions as laughable, saying PDP had been completely decimated and have no capacity to make any impact in the governorship election let alone winning.
He dismissed the assertion as “empty boast”, saying Lagosians knew the difference between light and retrogression and would continue to vote the APC.
He said: “The assertion made by the PDP that it would win the state in 2019 is a huge joke. In fact it is laughable.
“How do they want to achieve that? The party has been deserted and left for dead by Lagosians.
“A party where virtually all their bigwigs, such as Obanikoro and others had deserted because they have seen the light and are now in the fold of APC.
“Who is left in the PDP in the state? I think they are living in a fool’s paradise by thinking they would make an impact let alone win in 2019. PDP in Lagos is dead and buried.”
Salami said he was surprised the PDP was still boasting of winning some House of Assembly seats in 2015 though all those elected on its platform with the exception of one member had since defected to the APC.
He said the recent defection of no fewer than 1,500 former PDP members to APC was further confirmation that the opposition party had no place in the state.
Salami said Lagosians trusted the APC government in the state to deliver good leadership, saying PDP lacked the drive for progress.
He said: “Governor Akinwumi Ambode has been rendering purposeful leadership in the state in line with his electoral promise.
“Lagosians appreciate the progress the government is making, the people trust the APC to do more. PDP has no place in the state.”
