Lagos State governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Mr. Jimi Agbaje, on Thursday solicited the votes of Igbo across the state ahead of the Saturday elections and urged Igbo across the state to push the All Progressives Congress ‘into the lagoon’. This was in response to Oba Rilwan Akiolu’s threat. The Lagos monarch had during the week threatened that anyone who refuses to vote for APC's candidate, Akinwunmi Ambode, who he had endorsed, will perish in Lagos Lagoon.
Agbaje while addressing Igbo traders at the Alaba international market said “Nobody can push you into the Atlantic Ocean. Rather, you should use your votes to push the APC into the Atlantic Ocean by voting massively for the PDP on Saturday.” Agbaje counseling the audience to guard their votes, charged them to shun violence and refuse to be intimidated at the polling venue, Agbaje urged them to guard their votes.
