Fashola Tag Jandor A Common Camera Man, Jandor Respond Back


Former Governor of Lagos State and current Federal Minister of Works and Housing of Nigeria Babatunde Raji Fashola, has discredit the ability of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate - Olajide Adediran (Jandor).

Fashola said being a cameraman and following the governor does not give him the quality to be governor.

Jandor who was an employee under fashola's leadership of Lagos state, worked with the Lagos State Broadcasting Service as a Reportorial and Editorial Executive. But, Fashola regard him as just a camera man reporter.

BRF Said during his formal launch of Eko O ni baje 10,000 Foot Soldiers for Tinubu/Shettima and Sanwo-Olu/Hamzat initiated by him, saying - he (Jandor) did not have the quality to be governor of Lagos.


“Some people say they will take the land from us, that is too much. I did the job of Governor for eight years and part of what helped me was that I was chief of staff to the Governor, even that was not enough.

“So just following a Governor being a cameraman (Jandor) and then watching me for eight years then you think you will now be a governor, you are not ready, come to our leadership school, you are not yet ready.

“That is why you will see that they are focusing on the 51 billon naira Lagos State is generating. You did not see the immigrant population that is coming into Lagos everyday. The bigger the prosperity, the bigger the problem. Their party don’t see people, they don’t see the problem.”

Jandor who was also quick to respond back at his Oga said:

“He reportedly referred to me as a cameraman who is not ready to govern Lagos. Well while this may come as a shock to many, who may have heard me speak well of him and his achievements in Lagos, despite being the flag bearer of the main opposition party in the same Lagos, let me quickly signpost a reminder that this is the season of calumnies and the APC are expectedly under pressure to sell their unenviable records to the now very discerning electorates of Lagos. There is clearly a brief to all the beneficiaries of the status-quo to publicly show where their support lie.

“In June of 2020, an extract from BRF’s condolence message to me on the loss of my mum, in black prints, states: “your very inspiring life story…turned into a ladder for educational success, entrepreneurial acumen and visionary leadership aspirations” it is just a few weeks to elections and the story has suddenly changed.

“Records must be kept straight however, especially for varying audiences who may be misled by my very dear Boss and former Governor of Lagos. While I insist that there is absolutely nothing untoward about being a cameraman, and I must apologize to hordes of cameramen out there who have made a mark for themselves in their craft and may feel smeared by my respected Boss’s remark, I was never a cameraman,” he said.

Jandor added: “As a matter of fact, I was absorbed into the service of government of Lagos State Broadcasting Service as a Reportorial and Editorial Executive, and camera handling was certainly not the professional services I rendered to BRF, and the Lagos state government under his watch. I really don’t know what it is with my Oga (Boss) and cameras lately…this is reminding me of that famous missing camera he magically found at Lekki toll gate, the scene of the Endsars massacre.

“BRF has my respect still, nothing will change that. Personally, I can’t wait to show the residents of Lagos that a lot more can be achieved way beyond what their celebrated over N50b revenue is currently doing, when under the watch of a truly independent Governor that has no ties to a godfather’s apron strings. We will break Lagos free and my Boss, BRF will be proud of our achievements!”
