“We have come together here to tell the world that PDP in Lagos State is ready to take over power come 2023.
“We have 69 of us that are going to be on the ballot for both the national and the State elections.
“This is the new Lagos PDP, a rebranded one poised for winning”, he said.
In a breakdown of the candidates, 23 percent are 40 years old, 41 percent below 50 and 36 percent above age 50.
