The governorship candidate of Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 general elections, Mr. Jimi Agbaje, has opened up on the allegations that National Leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu sponsored his 2019 election.
Agbaje who also denied the claim that he was a mole of the All Progressive Congress (APC) during the election.
Here is the statement by Jimi Agbajae
“There were many things said. I was accused of being the opposition’s mole in the party, saying that it was Bola Tinubu that was sponsoring me.
“All those allegations were their own figment of imaginations because Tinubu that they are talking about, I had yet to meet him in the past six years, so where is that coming from?
“Also, it was said that I am the one supplying drugs to all the state hospitals in Lagos. If anybody says I am a government contractor, such a person should produce proof.
“People can be accused of anything, and that is what politics is all about. I have said it, I am not a government contractor, either state or federal,” Agbaje said.
He said that part of the ploy used against him during the last election was that he played divisive politics by pitching the Yorubas against other tribes, adding that he never did.
“I was accused of an alliance with the Igbos against the Yoruba interest. I want to challenge anyone with the record of such alliance to produce it because I never did.
“I don’t play politics of sentiments because I am different, all those allegations were just politicking to equate me out.
“Well, concerning running for gubernatorial election again, I have not said that I will run, but I remain a politician. I can remain as a politician without contesting for election, ” Agbaje said.
