Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 General Elections, Jimi Agbaje, has denied reports saying his election was sponsored by Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Agbaje has come out to say that every accusation leveled against him during the election were mainly circulated to ridicule him.
According to him, he has been accused of being APC’s mole in PDP from Tinubu but these accusations are nothing but a figment of imaginations since he has not met Jagaban in the past 6 years.
He added that he does not play politics of sentiments because he is different from the rest.
His words, “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.”
“I was accused of an alliance with the Igbos against the Yoruba interest. I want to challenge anyone with the record of such an 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.”
