The Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) Governorship Candidate in the 2019 General Elections, Mr Jimi Agbaje, has debunked allegations that he was a mole of the All Progressive Congress (APC) during the polls.
Agbaje who was accused of being sponsored by the national leader of the ruling party, Bola Tinubu, said the allegations were a figment of imaginations because he had yet to meet Tinubu in the past six years.
Speaking to the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, on Wednesday in Lagos, Agbaje said that all the allegations against him during the last general election were political gimmicks employed to ridicule him.
Agbaje spoke with NAN on the sidelines of the maiden Voice of Reason Goke Omisore Lecture, with the theme: “Restructuring; Building a Knowledge-Based Society,” held at Muson Centre, Onikan, Lagos.
“There were many things said. I was accused of being the opposition’s mole in the party, saying that it was Bola Tinubu that was sponsoring me.
“All those allegations were their own figment of imaginations because Tinubu that they are talking about, I had yet to meet him in the past six years, so where is that coming from?
“Also, it was said that I am the one supplying drugs to all the state hospitals in Lagos. If anybody says I am a government contractor, such person should produce proof.
“People can be accused of anything, and that is what politics is all about. I have said it, I am not a government contractor, either state or federal,” he said.
