Agbaje Berates APC Over Attacks On His Person, To Rebrand LASTMA
PDP governorship candidate for Lagos state, Mr. Jimi Agbaje, has berated chieftains of the All Peoples Congress (APC) for maligning him on various issues.
He spoke on the second day of his party’s rallies in Lagos, which took place in Amuwo and Apapa local government areas.
“E be like say dis governorship election, na two-and-half people Jimi Agbaje dey contest against,” he said in pidgin, referring to public attacks launched against him by APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Governor Babatunde Fashola and their candidate, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode.
Describing Tinubu as the puppeteer of the two others, Agbaje said it was strange to be described as too old by people in the same 50s age bracket as himself, especially as their party presented a 72-year-old as presidential candidate.
As far as he was concerned, the government was lashing back at him for exposing cases of impunity and weakness in the administration of Lagos state.
Agbaje promised that the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) would be rebranded, not scrapped, saying, the problem with the agency was that it has veered from its statutory duty of traffic management to imposing draconian fines on motorists in order to generate funds for the government.
He also said that commercial motorcyclists (Okada) would be taken into consideration in formulating policies concerning their operations.
