The governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos, jimi Agbaje has dismissed allegation of planned rigging by the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Speaking through his media aide, Remi Adefulu, Agbaje said there was no truth in the claim that he and some other people met with the president to draw a plan to rig today’s poll.
According to Adefulu, who spoke on telephone with Saturday Tribune, Agbaje was busy on Thursday campaigning in several parts of Lagos. And Obanikoro, who the APC alleged was at the meeting with the president, was also on the campaign train, whose activities were shown on television. They did not return from the campaign until around 10.00 p.m. on Thursday.
Adefulu said there was no plan to rig today’s election by Agbaje who he claims enjoys popular support from Lagosians.
“Tell them, the APC are a bunch of liars. Agbaje was busy throughout yesterday (Thursday) with his campaign which took him to Alaba from Obanikoro up to Mile 2 and down to Festac Town.
“Obanikoro was equally part of the campaign. Television carried it. Agbaje did return to his office until past 10 in the evening yesterday. Agbaje is not ready to rig. That is why he has embarked on very rigorous campaign despite his popularity among Lagosians,” he said.
Adefulu stated that the series of lies and rumours being peddled by the APC only show how afraid the party is.
