Lagos State Publicity secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Gani Taofik, has described the results of a poll by African Leadership Magazine where Lagos governor Akinwunmi Ambode emerged leader for “Best Governor” position as “laughable.”
During an interview with Punch on Thursday, Taofik stated:
“Can Governor Akinwunmi Ambode walk on the streets and receive the same kind of support that Governor Fayose gets in Ekiti? Ambode’s elitist style cannot be compared to that of Mimiko and Fayose, who are governors that the common man recognises and relates easily with.
“Ambode cannot match the popularity and acceptability that both Mimiko and Fayose command in Ondo and Ekiti states respectively. Fayose and Mimiko are far better than Ambode.”
