The gladiators are sharpening their swords as the race for the soul of Lagos State draws nearer.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Wednesday described the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) as “a dead party, not capable of capturing Lagos in 2019.”

The Assistant Publicity Secretary of the APC in the state, Abiodun Salami made the remark in Lagos.

Salami was reacting to an assertion by the Publicity Secretary of PDP in the state, Taofik Gani, that the opposition party would win Lagos State in 2019.

Gani had said that 2019 would be the beginning of the end of APC administration in the state as the party was sure of dislodging the ruling party.

He had claimed that Lagosians were tired of the “non-performance of APC government and were eagerly waiting to vote PDP."

But Salami described his comments as laughable, saying PDP had been completely decimated and had 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.
