Jandor Accuses Lagos Govt Of Stifling Campaign
The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Lagos state, Dr. Olajide Adediran, has accused the state government of frustrating his campaign efforts.
During an interview on Arise TV on Wednesday, Adediran aka Jandor claimed that billboard companies are refunding his money and saying they have been asked not to accept any advertising from him.
He said: “The moment that of Afromedia happened in Falomo here, I placed a call through to the Lagos police commissioner myself and I said to him, ‘CP, this just happened. It was removed.’ We didn’t even know, we thought it was the hoodlums who removed them. It was after investigation that we realised that it was the state government, through LASAA that removed it.
“The company in question did say to us, ‘They have asked us not to take anything from you. We will refund your money.” Just like JCDecaux did refund our money.
“We will continue to paste our posters. Last week on the Third Mainland bridge, which is even a federal government road, our people put some A4 boards. They were removing them in broad day light, after paying for all of them. We won’t allow this, we will find a way to put our campaign materials out there.”
