Lagos 2019: Agbaje Hails Oluwo’s Defection, Says ‘Babylon Is Falling’
The Lagos State governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Mr. Jimi Agbaje has hailed the defection of the Commissioner for Energy and Mineral Resources, Mr. Olawale Oluwo, to the party
In a statement titled, ‘Babylon is Falling’, Agbaje said the APC would continue to fail and crumble.
He said, “Babylon is falling! APC is crumbling. The commissioner has displayed uncommon courage by the decision. He is a good example for others to follow as this empire begins to fall to pieces.
“I am gladdened by the news of my brother’s defection to the PDP. Indeed, it is a welcome development which must be lauded and applauded by all lovers of freedom and democracy. By this singular gesture, Oluwo has counted himself worthy as a man of integrity.
“I look forward to teaming up with him to liberate our dear state from the shackles of bad governance and corruption.”
Agbaje further urged all stakeholders in the state to join him in the task of liberating the state from the stranglehold of predatory vested interests who had in the last 19 years held the state to ransom.
“I am using this opportunity to all stakeholders in the state, particularly my brothers and sisters in the APC to toe the path of honour, and join us to rescue our state from the vice grips of a vested cabal that has arrested its development in the last 20 years,” he said.
In the same manner, the PDP Publicity Secretary in the state, Mr. Taofik Gani, said Oluwo would be remembered for his noble gesture.
The statement read “He has taken a political step never to be regretted. We encourage all remaining true democrats to join the PDP now. Lagos has been in bondage of a unipolar rule and control.
“Indeed with all that can be conceded to Ambode as due performances, he was denied a second term on the selfish, flimsy, vindictive excuse that he refused to fund the APC chieftains. Our emphasis here is that the APC is desperately holding onto Lagos State to enrich the chieftains directly or by bogus contracts awarded.
