Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the governor of Lagos has been selected by the ruling party as the head of its campaign in the upcoming governorship election in Ondo.
The election which is scheduled to hold on October 10, is primarily between the candidate of the All Progressives Congress Rotimi Akeredolu, who is also the incumbent governor, and Eyitayo Jegede, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Governor Akeredolu’s deputy decamped from the ruling party to the PDP, but Agboola Ajayi failed to clinch the governorship ticket and has since moved to the Zenith Labour Party, ZLP.
Members of the PDP believe he is working as a spoiler and can not win the election.

The PDP has also faulted the selection of Governor Sanwo-Olu to lead the campaign, saying that it was not “his political experience,” that got him selected for the role.
“The selection of Governor Babajide Sanwoolu as Head of the APC Ondo State Governorship campaign council cannot be for his political experience but because the APC intends to use Lagos funds to run the Ondo elections.
“Just as we are already hinted that Sanwoolu has approved N25 Billion to support Ize Iyamu in Edo.”
The party said it plans to “invite EFCC and also support the legal protest against this selection targeted at diverting Lagos taxes in the face of colossal infrastructure inadequacies begging for attention in the state.”
