A former governor of Lagos state, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has taken a swipe at PDP’s gubernatorial candidate, Jimi Agbaje over the latter’s claim that he will ‘free’ Lagos
Tinubu stated that those who want freedom should go and learn a trade like tailoring and vulcanising
This is in response to claims made by Agbaje that if he takes office he will free Lagosians from Alphabeta Consulting, a company he claims takes a bit of every Naira paid in tax by Lagosians.
“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.” Tinubu said
“He was in the contest for the first and second times. He is in the contest for the third time. He will fail again.”
The APC stalwart also mandated that there must be 3 million votes for Buhari from Lagos, explaining that the APC had to remain the ruling party in Nigeria
“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.”
