Ex-governor and National leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has said that the Lagos state gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic party, PDP, Jimi Agbaje will fail in the upcoming elections.
Tinubu’s response is coming after Agbaje said that he will rescue Lagos from AlphaBeta, a consulting firm he claims receives a cut from every dime Lagos state earns in revenues and taxes.
Tinubu at an APC stakeholders’ meeting in Ikeja on Monday, said;
“Those who said they wanted freedom should go and learn tailoring and vulcanising and we will do freedom for them later. They do not have the people. He was in the contest for the first and second times. He is in the contest for the third time. He will fail again.”
Tinubu said Lagos must deliver at least three million votes for the APC during the 2019 polls.
He said it is imperative for the ruling party to hold on to power and that its members “must vote en masse” for President Muhammadu Buhari.
The APC chieftain said: “Here in Lagos, we must maintain a strong outing for APC, a party of progress, development and economy. We must differentiate between a developmental economy and a container economy. We will not accept to get Nigeria corrupt again.
“We suffered 16 years of their failure and fake promises. We have made progress in Lagos We have become the fifth largest economy in Africa. We have six million votes in Lagos.
“Your target should be half; three million or the entire six million. We must vote en masse for President Muhammadu Buhari and Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, our governorship candidate, senators, house of representatives and assembly candidates, and later, our chairmen and councillors.”
