Show decency in your campaign, Sanwo-Olu tells Agbaje



The candidate of the All Progressives Congress in next year’s governorship election in Lagos State, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has cautioned his opponent in the Peoples Democratic Party, Mr Jimi Agbaje, against insults and pettiness.

He said since Agbaje was older than him, he expected him to show decency in his campaign.

Sanwo-Olu was responding to Agbaje’s portrayal of him as a stooge and non-achiever in a series of tweets earlier today.

He said, “As leaders, we should place a high premium on civility and imbibe a high level of decorum in a period like this as an example to our followers.

“Our campaign should be about important issues that affect the lives of our people; what we are bringing to the table to make life more meaningful to Lagosians.

“This election will be about who has the best credentials to lead Lagos at this time of our development. It won’t be about who can dish out the most insults or tell the most lies.

“The election will be about who has the best plan to continue with the progressive and developmental agenda of Lagos that started since 1999. Lagos is a work in progress.

“In my published interviews in major newspapers this past Sunday, I was clear when I said Mr Agbaje is my ‘egbon’ (elder brother). He is older than me. There is a level of decency that is expected of an elder.”
