Reactions As Babatunde Gbadamosi Of ADP Steals Show At Lagos Governorship Debate

Babatunde Olalere Gbadamosi was a cynosure of eyes as the hitherto underdog stole the show at the debates which has got many talking…

The candidate of the Action Democratic Party, Babatunde Olalere Gbadamosi has been trending on the social media for his sound contributions at the Lagos Governorship debate organised by The Platform.

The debate also had in attendance three other candidates; Owolabi Salis (Alliance for Democracy), Babajide Sanwo-Olu (APC) and Jimi Agbaje (PDP).

Gbadamosi, a Real Estate mogul and owner of Amen Estate was the rave of the debate and he received praises from followers of the show which was aired on Channels Television. He was a prominent member of the Lagos PDP before his defection to the ADP.

One of the high point of the debate was when BOG, as Gbadamosi is popularly called waited for his rival Sanwo-Olu of the APC to finish defending a point then said, “Our problem as a country is that we talk too much and do too little“, a statement that received the loudest ovation from the audience in the studio.

Just tuning in and catching a candidate I’d previously never heard about – Mr Gbadamosi. He has my attention fully. Let me adjust my Orijin and see if he sustains things.

Gbadamosi wins the debate. No argument. However, I am sad & despondent. He is operating in a clime where his “big grammar” and “intellectualism” will be dismissed, ridiculed, & turned to a liability by people who, contemptuous of excellence, have wedded their fate to mediocrity.

In order of performance Gbadamosi had all the answers. Has a good plan. Floored all. Agbaje gave us the same as he always has. Jk Jk Sanwaolu refers to himself in 3rd person cos he’s not/will not be in charge Salis is a native doctor. When he meets Christ, he’ll become Silas.

Mr Gbadamosi has all the answers and well thought out plans but I didn’t even know of him till today. Worth my vote sha.

Let’s keep it a buck: Gbadamosi is currently leading here and it’s shameful that Jimi Agbaje, who should have a working blueprint after contesting 3 times is selling us these mundane narratives. O ja mi lara je.

Gbadamosi destroyed everyone at the debate tonight. But sadly, this is Nigeria where a lack of “ structure “ will mean that the dude will come a distant third or fourth. When will we get it right?

Babatunde Gbadamosi is like the Kingsley Moghalu of the Presidential elections. Man knows his onions but sadly the most competent doesn’t win in Nigeria

When someone like Gbadamosi contests and doesn’t win, it tells us we are our own problem in this part of the world…..
