The former governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos, Jimi Agbaje, has described the administration of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu as a total failure.
Speaking to PeoplesGazette on Sunday, Jimi Agbaje who is known to ‘disappear’ after elections and ‘reappear’ before major elections described Sanwo-Olu’s claimed achievements as imaginary.
Recall that the Lagos governor had last Monday reeled out his account of stewardship stating that his administration hasn’t disappointed Lagosians in delivering on its promises.
He said his administration, since 2019, has lived to expectation in various sectors such as transportation, infrastructural development, education, health, revenue generation, and security.
But while scoring Sanwo-Olu’s performance since his assumption into office in 2019, Agbaje rated the Lagos governor three over ten.
“What they wrote, they did not substantiate it. They were things done in their imagination,” Jimi Agbaje said.
On COVID-19, the PDP chieftain stated that the present administration has not done enough to fight the scourge.
He queried: “You are not testing, you are not giving vaccination to people. Those that have collected the first round of the vaccination, they are yet to get the second round of it, and how many people have been vaccinated in Lagos?”
Concerning the rising rate of theft, robbery and other crimes in most parts of the state, he asserted that, “even in security, we cannot drive during the day without being harassed in traffic by hoodlums. They are operating morning, day and night. You introduced curfew from 12:00 a.m. to 4:00 a.m., what about during the day time? Phones are being snatched, so what are they doing about all these?”
The PDP chieftain expressed disappointment at the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for wasting its 21 years in power in the state.
He expressed concern over the yet unsolved traffic gridlock usually experienced in many parts of the state over the years.
Jimi Agbaje also expressed worry about the state of the education sector in Lagos saying, “most of our classrooms have no benches and chairs. They mentioned that they are building schools somewhere, what are they building? Some of the things they have said that they are doing, they are in their dreams.”
