Nigeria's First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan said that the people of Lagos State are in bondage.
She, therefore, urged them to vote for the People's Democratic Party (PDP) in the forthcoming general elections to free themselves.
Dame Jonathan spoke at the National Stadium, Surulere, Lagos at a rally organised by the PDP Women Advocacy for Change where she canvassed votes for her husband and the PDP presidential candidate, President Goodluck Jonathan and his running mate, Architect Namadi Sambo.
According to the First Lady, the PDP presented Jimi Agbaje as governorship candidate to set the people of Lagos State free from the bondage of the All Progressives Congress (APC) which has been governing the state for the past 16 years.
She said, “My people and women in Lagos State, vote for Jimi Agbaje, he is a good material and is not corrupt; he will never steal your money. So, come April 11, I want you to remember that Jimi Agbaje is the answer."
The First Lady said that the Jonathan administration has done a lot in transforming Nigeria. She said the transformation must continue because the opposition has nothing to offer, while challenging the opposition to state what its presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) did for Nigeria when he was the head of state about 30 years ago.
She added that the Jonathan administration must continue because, "when a train starts to move, you cannot stop it until it reaches its destination."
Earlier, PDP's National Women Leader, Mrs Kema Chikwe said President Jonathan has done a lot for women and voting him for continuation is pay back.
Also, the Lagos State gubernatorial candidate for the PDP, Jimi Agbaje said that change would come to Lagos if he is voted into office.
He said there is need for replication of the transformation works that PDP is doing at the federal level, in Lagos State.
