The PDP governorship candidate for Lagos State, Jimi Agbaje, has slammed the government for clearing the tankers which normally cause traffic gridlock in Apapa.
The tankers where cleared off the highways and bridges in the area ahead of President Muhammadu Buhari” visit to the state for his presidential campaign rally.
According to Agbaje, the disappearance meant that authorities were wicked and had only left residents and businesses to suffer deliberately.
Addressing the crowd at a town hall meeting held at the OC Events Centre on Randle Road Apapa, Jimi Agbaje said:
“Have you noticed that there is no traffic jam in Apapa today?”
“Yes!” the gathering shouted.
“Why? Because President Muhammadu Buhari is coming, isn’t it?”
“Yes!” came the response.
“It means that these people are wicked people. It means that they are hypocrites. They have refused to clear this traffic all this time, even when they knew they had the solution. So because President Muhammadu Buhari is coming tomorrow, they have cleared the traffic. So when he leaves, they will punish us again.
“We are saying that the traffic situation in Apapa becomes a priority. I am an Apapa person. I stay in Apapa. I work in Apapa. As Governor, I will ensure that this punishment will stop.”
“Amen!” the crowd screamed.
