The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Lagos State, Mr Jimi Agbaje, has described the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a party already in panic mode, ahead of elections in 2019.
Agbaje, in a statement on Wednesday in Lagos, said the ruling party was panicky because of the bold handwriting on the wall that it would be defeated by PDP.
According to him, it is tragic that even as APC battles its internal contractions, it still indulges in derogatory remarks against him, his party, the PDP, and even his supporters.
He, however, said Lagos residents could no more be decieved, as they “now know better”.
“Imagine, I am being derided for my consistency in running a third time for the office of governor.
“I am also misrepresented daily for staying with my dream of a greater and a democratic Lagos, where everybody living here, irrespective of status or political affiliation, will be free.
“Yes, I am their customer and I have no problem with that tag, because I am a good sportsman.
“But those with discerning mind know that customer is king. Unknown to them, I am their king, let them wait and see,” he said.
Agbaje described as an anomaly a situation where Lagos earned huge revenues and “a private company collects a substantial part of that money in the name of consultancy fee”.
He said that all must come together and vote right to end such practice.
