The governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, Jimi Agbaje, on Saturday promised to make Badagry the industrial hub of West Africa.
Speaking at a campaign rally, Agbaje lamented that the axis has been short-changed in terms of development.
“I observed that Badagry has been shortchanged over the years in Lagos state.
“I want you all to know that government is for all, Badagry inclusive. There is need to look at the teeming youths because many of them are without jobs.” he said, adding that the only way the youths could have jobs was by creating industries in Badagry.
“We know that Badagry has been placed in a position where it can become a hub for exploits,” he said.
Agbaje said he was overwhelmed by the crowd that turned out to receive him. He promised not to let them down if elected.
