The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos, Jimi Agbaje, has assured residents of Alimosho local government of winning Saturday’s gubernatorial election in the state.
He made this known on Wednesday when he stormed the local government for a road show as part of his tour of the state ahead of the polls.
Agbaje, who was accompanied by his running mate, Haleemat Busari, traversed the length and breadth of the local government, visiting areas such as Iyana-Ipaja, Gowon Estate, Ipaja-Ayobo, Egbeda, Idimu, Ikotun and others.
Our Community can report that hundreds of Alimosho residents defied the rain and trooped out to welcome the campaign team.
Addressing residents, Agbaje urged them to vote massively for him to witness a positive turn-around in the fortunes of the local government and the state.
He told them to disregard a purported adoption of the Action Democratic Party (ADP) candidate, Mr Babatunde Gbadamosi by the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) in the state.
He said that the PDP is an integral member of the CUPP in the state and the coalition never endorsed any candidate for the election.
Agbaje said, “My party, PDP, is a bona-fide entity in the CUPP and I can assure you that no such endorsement has taken place, and it is not even on the cards.
“It is a mixture of blackmail and mischief, the reports that PDP party joined others to adopt a common flagbearer for Saturday’s election.
“The umbrella opposition group, CUPP, purportedly adopted the Action Democratic Party (ADP) candidate, Mr Babatunde Gbadamosi, as the sole candidate it would back against Babajide Sanwoolu of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“Those pushing this false and evil narrative and those who think they can benefit from it are lilly-livered and Lilliputian contestants who lack any sense of decency.
“Everyone should be wary of the antics of these political desperadoes; these are political featherweights, lowly rated in this contest, and they will do anything to play the role of spoilers.”
