Agbaje begins campaign, promises to restore freedom, Dignity to Lagos

It was a rainbow coalition of various social, political and cultural groups as 

Olujimi Agbaje, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Lagos State governorship 

candidate for the 2019 election kicked off his campaign.

The crowd came from different localities in the state including Ajegunle, 

Mushin, Ikorodu, Agege, Badagry, Ikeja and several other areas to witness the 

grand event in Lekki Lagos.

At the interactive ceremony, the PDP candidate promised to restore the dignity 

of Lagos and give the residents the much-desired freedom to determine their 

fate rather than being muzzled by a Godfather as it has been the case in the 

last 20 years.

Amidst applause from representatives of various ethnic, social, political groups 

and civil society from all parts of Lagos, Agbaje assured that the thrust of his 

administration will be anchored on believability, power and healthcare.

According to him, 1000 megawatts of power would be targeted in four years to 

muscle up and boost the economic fortune of the people. He said the plank of 

his health care programme would be built around health insurance schemes.

The PDP candidate also promised to restore the glory and standard of 

education in the state by providing more accessible to quality education as 

opposed to the current ineffective system.

“I am running a believable administration and I am in the race for service not 

for self. They are in politics for selves. They have said that I am their 

‘customer’. But I want to tell them that the customer is the king and he is 

always right. By March 2019, the rest will be history because this election will 

be decided by the people of Lagos who yearn for freedom, and not by political 

parties,” he told the enthusiastic supporters.

He also used the opportunity to introduce his deputy, Mrs. Haleemat 

Oluyemisi Busari and promised that they would “carry the load together” 

instead of the culture of making the deputy a “spare tyre”.

The duo promised to hold more townhall meetings in the days ahead to 

engage supporters and voters on the programmes for the state.

“We need a governor that the buck stops on his table. I promise to be that 

governor. The buck will stop on my table and Lagos will go back to his glory as 

the future is bright,” he said amidst thunderous applause.
