Jimi Agbaje takes a shot at the Oba of Lagos and ‘the royal utterance of 2015’

On Wednesday morning, Lagos State PDP governorship candidate, Jimi Agbaje in a series of Tweets called out his opponent, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on a number of issues.

 

Then he stirred up an ethnic issue where he took a swipe at the Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akinolu, making reference to the 2015 statement where he said, ‘Jimi is my blood relation, and I told him he can never be Governor in Lagos now and if you [the crowd] do what I want then Lagos will continue to be prosperous for you, if you go against this you will be banished to the water! Finished!”

 

Jimi Agbaje in hisTtweet this morning, said, ‘on Lagos and the Igbos: the narrative that Lagos dislikes the Igbos is extremely false. Oh yes, Lagos does not dislike the Igbos, your political establishment does. The royal utterance of 2015 is still fresh on the mind of the entire electorate’.

In your previous roles, what were your achievements? As MD of LSDPC, how many housing units were added to solve the housing challenge? As Commissioner to Establishment, how did the lot of civil servants improve?

Technology is an enabler that is available to everyone. It is a leveler and people can no longer be bamboozled.

On Sanwo Free Wifi: We are going live this week in some of these locations. Internet for knowledge, research, empowerment and ultimately for solutions.

This is merely political gimmick. Lagosians know better than to be swayed be such Greek gifts. The voting populace is not data hungry. They want freedom; to live a decent life in the city they have come to know as home.They are not cheap skates to be swayed by cheap data.

Lagos deserves a free hand and independent mind; someone who is not tied to the apron strings of a Godfather.

On running mate Dr Obafemi Hamzat: Lagos is getting an amazing deal, two governors wrapped in one .

Two governors wrapped in one as presented by you is an elixir for anarchy in governance. You were billed to be Obafemi Hamzat’s Chief of Staff in his attempt to run for office in 2014. He cannot and will not truly see himself as your deputy.

Jimi Agbaje is self-destructing with his divisive campaign. Any sort of good will he has now has been tarnished.

Jimi Agbaje is ever so willing & eager to set tribes against themselves in Lagos just so he can win elections. That’s the person I am supposed to vote for. Campaign for elections,lose, completely disappear only to reappear again singing the song Igbo vs Yoruba song. I hear you.

Jimi Agbaje wakes up in the name of a campaign and calls Lagosians slaves & I am supposed to warm up to that & vote for him? Maybe the slaves will vote for him sha. There could be enough people who consider themselves slaves. I am as free as air in Lagos. He is not talking to me.

They will always find something wrong in Jimi Agbaje. They said he was not campaigning. Now that he’s campaigning, they are saying there’s something wrong with his campaign. Please vote your mad man in peace and stop disturbing our peace.

Jimi Agbaje awakened Lagosians to some cold truths but the babasopes and sophisticated morons he wants to liberate have turned it into a kerfuffle.

Harriet Tubman said: “I freed a 1000 slaves I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.”

People saying “jImi aGbaJe sHouLd stiCk tO isSuEs” amuse me. He ABSOLUTELY has to belittle Sanwoolu.

A lot of the criticism of Jimi came from people feeling he lacked aggression& self-belief. He has to stir people up and make them see Gator-Jeans as crap they shouldn’t consider

Jimi Agbaje says he wants to free lagos from godfatherism. This is a man who has a former convicted looter as his main backer. If he is asking us to choose between Bode George and Bola Ahmed Tinubu. I’ll pick Tinubu everytime. Next?
