Few weeks to the conduct of the governorship elections in Lagos state, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, has fired a shot at his main contender, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Mr. Jimi Agbaje, describing Agbaje as an intern who lacks the executive experience to govern the state.
Ambode, during the party?s campaign rally at Ifako-Ijaye Mini Stadium?on Thursday, added that the job of governing the state was too complex for an intern.
He described Agbaje as a pharmacist with just a chemist experience, who had been unable to grow his business beyond two shops.
The APC gubernatorial candidate said, ?The job of the governor of Lagos is not meant for people without experience like the PDP candidate. He has no executive experience; his experience is that he has only worked in his pharmacy.
?He has not developed it beyond two shops. Lagos is too complex for an intern, we can?t entrust this state into the hands of someone who will experiment with it.?
Ambode therefore urged Lagosians to vote for him in the?April 11, 2015?governorship election, assuring them that he possessed the needed executive experience to govern the state and move it to the next level.
He said, ?Whatever project that Governor Babatunde Fashola has not completed, I will complete it; there must be continuity. We want continuity because Lagos is known for excellence. We will work together to make Lagos prosperous for us all and nobody will be left out.?
The candidate also implored the residents to vote out President Goodluck Jonathan during the presidential election scheduled for?March 28, saying allowing the PDP to govern again was to further destroy the country.
Ambode cautioned the populace against the sale of their Permanent Voter Cards, saying it was their weapon to effect a change for good governance.
