LAGOS—The governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in Lagos State, Mr. Jimi Agbaje, has promised to create more local governments in addition to the current 57.
Speaking at Kosofe and Shomolu Local Government Areas, Agbaje refuted claims that he intended to scrap the new 37 local council development areas, LCDAs.
According to him, “the lie they are spreading now is that we are against the existing 57 councils. That is not true. In fact, we are already considering the possibility of increasing the local governments beyond the present 57”.
Agbaje, who expressed optimism of defeating the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Mr Akinwumi Ambode said: “I have always said it everywhere I go and I will say it again here, we are winning this election.”
