A leader of the youth wing of the All Progressive Congress warns Jimi Agabje, the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, to stop his campaign of calumny against the APC national leader
Idris Aregbe, the Lagos state Youth Organising secretary of the All Progressive Congress, APC, has warned Jimi Agbaje, the gubernatorial candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, to cease from blackmailing and assassinating the character of Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the APC national leader.
He sent the strong warning while reacting to Agbaje’s campaign for ‘freedom for Lagos’ during a youth round table meeting where he hosted hundreds of Lagos youths discussing the further development of the state.
He said: “At this age and time in Nigerian politics, we can all campaign in peace without maliciously spreading falsehood about one another in a bid to create chaos in a peaceful state like Lagos.”
“I want to emphatically state here that no one is living in bondage. If you look at Lagos of today, Lagos is successfully competing with several other great cities of the world. We are enjoying all these developments today because of one selfless man and that man is Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and his vision for Lagos,” he added.
While further emphasising on the development of Lagos so far, Aregbe quizzed: “We have also seen several PDP governors trooping to Lagos to acquire templates for governance and economic development, so tell me how are we in bondage?”
He added: “We’ve seen lots of governorship candidates from other parties that have no single plan for Lagosians but will be looking for all means to dent the good image of a visionary like Asiwaju.”
While he urged youth to participate actively in the electioneering process, he also advised youths to stay away from chaos and mischief makers as they are bent on ruining the peaceful existence of Lagos state.
