The People’s Democratic Party Governorship Candidate in Lagos State, Mr Jimi Agbaje, is confident of victory heading into the governorship contest.
He said Saturday that he will beat the All Progressives Congress candidate, Mr Babajide Sanwo-olu, flat in the 2019 election.
“I will beat the APC in 2019; mark my words, I will not only beat them, I will beat them flat. I am sure of winning because Lagosians are behind me.
“The support we were given in 2015 is still there, intact. We will expand on it in 2019. I am in the race because I am passionate about Lagos.
“I hear them calling me their customer because of my past attempts, but I tell them, the customer is King. By next year, we shall know the results. But I can assure you once again that I will beat them flat,” he said.
The governorship candidate said the APC had failed the state in all ramifications, calling on residents to vote out the party for lack of progress.
Agbaje said the party is not affected by the defection of some party members.
It is normal for people to change parties, but the question is, what is the impact? When Obanikoro left, did anybody go with him?
“When Salvador left, our former Chairman, he left alone. The people are still in the party. Chief Bode George is here, so are all the great party men.
“So, we are winning in 2019. No doubt about that. The people are tired and they want a change in PDP,” he said.
