Just thinking out loud about this man here that has been screaming bold ideas all over Lagos without a single example of where he’s exhibited the capacity to implement a single idea not to now talk of bold ones.
Jimi Agbaje claims to have bold ideas… that he will use to make Lagos better than what the Jagabanians have done with her in the last 16 years but I choose to ask some very sane questions and lay out verifiable fact.
Jimi Agbaje as a pharmacist and business man has owned the JayKay Pharmacy for like 30 years now like he proudly claims, anyone that hears about the JayKay Pharmacy will immediately assume it’s some big booming business because the owner is in such lime light that could have been from business success but the truth is that is not so true, the JayKay Pharmacy is a single branched business that had not grown beyond the spot it started from 30 years ago.
Jaykay Pharmacy Limited located at 9,Randle Cescent, Apapa has been one of the most dormant pharmaceutical outfit in this state in the last 30 years, it has neither grown in size nor capacity as a business and it has been managed and owned by the same man that is now promising to use BOLD IDEAS to take Lagos to the next level, I wonder where those bold ideas are coming from or where we can see the effect and efficacy of his BOLD IDEATION so that we can related them to what he’d claimed the can do. I intentionally posted the address for those who want to go see the tired looking business this brave man called Jimi Agabje has been managing without success. Don’t mind me though, the business has grown from what we call “CHEMIST” here in Lagos to a “SUPER MARKET“. It has grown from just Phensic and Daga store to a place where you can get herbal drugs like “Ruzu” and “Swedish Bitters” and for those that want it stronger, yes you can buy “Orijin” in big bottles there now. Sorry I forgot, he also manufactures pharmaceutical products like Methylated Spirit and Mouth Wash but I heard the factory is in Otta and it parked up not too long ago because of production challenges related to power.
The truth about Jimi Agbaje is that he’s a largely an average business man who has only been able to use his professional identity and influence of his father who was the first local bank director in Nigeria to garner wealth through business and political affiliation and not trade or direct business success.
I have no candidate for you, I just want you to know who you want to handover your vote to if you’ve chosen to vote Jimi Agbaje. Take a look at what he’s managed for over 30 years… (since 1982), see the growth pattern and compare it with all the things he has promised to do in 4 or 8 years. Don’t allow him lie to you that it’s lack of resources, it is pure lack of ideas for growth, if he needed loans at all, he would have gotten access to that in GTB without a limit or tab on how much… even with his status, he could get a loan to buy a jet, not even accessing loan to expand his business is out of dearth of ideas.
For those of you that have connected vocal eloquence and good oratory capability to ability to deliver the false promises, take a look back and see if any of the promises made by our PDP politicians in the past had been fulfilled at all “Enu Dun Rofo”. Someone needs to remind this brother that “Enu Oshe” let me find the song and attach that song by Durella to this post abeg.
