The candidate of the Action Democratic Party (ADP)
The candidate of the Action Democratic Party (ADP), Babatunde Gbadamosi, was the dark horse that wowed members of the audience in Saturday’s Lagos gubernatorial election debate, as he spoke confidently of his plans if elected governor of the country’s commercial capital.
He promised Lagos people saying:“The first thing I am going to be looking at very quickly is public sector pay.
“What we pay as civil servants and what we demand from them –- there is a massive gulf between the two.”
The candidate of the Action Democratic Party (ADP also correctly fact-checked the APC candidate after he falsely stated that the state government was transparent and publishes its budgets. He pointed out that the state budget website no longer existed stating that the government is known for being opaque rather than open. He said if elected into office he would operate an open government.
Mr Gbadamosi, who was a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) before defecting to the ADP, received rave reviews of his performance in the debate, which was organised by The Platform, a civic discussion initiative of the Covenant Christian Centre.
