It’s crunch time and it’s only apt that Jimi Agbaje will capitalise on the unfortunate utterance of the Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, who threatened that the Igbos would die in the Lagoon if they don’t vote for Akinwunmi Ambode.
Consequently, the Peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate in Lagos State, has done what any other politician would do by urging Igbos in the state to push the All Progressives Congress ‘into the Atlantic Ocean’ by voting for him on Saturday.
And Agbaje couldn’t have found a more appropriate venue to make the statement on Thursday- Alaba International Market.
He said: “Nobody can push you into the Atlantic Ocean. Rather, you should use your votes to push the APC into the Atlantic Ocean by voting massively for the PDP on Saturday.”
“Election is like a snake. You have to make sure you win by killing the snake completely by using your votes to drive the APC out of power. The reason why they are harassing you is because they fear Igbo votes. They will try to do ‘shakara’ for you but you must vote massively for the PDP and protect your votes.”
“In the last 16 years, the APC has been full of arrogance. This arrogance must end once and for all. Saturday is the time to say enough is enough.”
“God is on our side and power will change hands on Saturday and life will be better for you and your businesses. There will be no oppression again because this election is about freedom from bondage.”
