The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship Candidate in Lagos State, Mr. Jimi Agbaje, on Sunday claimed he is the best man to run the affairs of the State as he has no political godfather that will negatively influence and manipulate him when voted into office.
Agbaje disclosed this while speaking with journalists in Lagos on Sunday
The governorship Candidate said that if given the mandate, his administration would seize all properties gotten illegally in the state.
Agbaje also debunked claims that he has no experience to run for the office of governor.
He noted that “When it was time to choose my running mate, I chose my running mate, nobody chose her for me. The issue of a godfather hampering service delivery is not even on the table. I don’t have a godfather. I want the people to believe me that it won’t happen.”
He expressed his determination to end the god -fatherism as their interest in governance is affecting the implementation of policies in the State.
“In Lagos, you may find good programmes on paper but you will see that the implementation is being affected by vested interests. Anything that Lagos does must be in the interest of what I call vested interest. So, the light rail project and the Bus Rapid Transit are not working again because there are vested interests.
“We have vested interest affecting the social, economic and political life of our state. You cannot have any big project in Lagos unless you take into consideration the vested interest. It is affecting our state and we are saying that it is time to remove Lagos from this bondage”, he said
