Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Lagos State, Mr. Jimi Agbaje, over the weekend said the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari was a captive to his new political associates, inferring former Lagos State Governor and APC national leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Speaking at a media parley in Lagos, Agbaje said although Buhari had certain leadership qualities, those qualities have been overridden by circumstances he couldn’t control.
In Agbaje’s words: “The Buhari of now is not the same Buhari of 2007 and 2011 and I can defend this anywhere. The Buhari of 2011 was running on his own steam. The Buhari of 2015 is a captive. We know who is behind his running mate. We know those who put all those working in his team where they are today. We can’t be fighting bondage in Lagos and also put ourselves in bondage at the national level. The same model that is paying out in Lagos is what they want to replicate at the national level. We have to fight it. That is the reality on ground. We have to refuse the attempt at bringing the same failed model in Lagos State to the centre.”
