Jimi Agbaje Enters Race To Become Lagos’ Next Governor
Jimi Agbaje has confirmed that he will run away for the Governor of Lagos State under the platform of the People’s Democratic Party in the forthcoming elections.
The former Governorship candidate was speaking to NAN and said he initially didn’t want to contest but was convinced by his supporters to change his mind.
“It is true that initially I did not want to re-contest, but I had so many people urging me to run,” he said.
“I bought and submitted my nomination form shortly before it closed. I will be part of the PDP Lagos governorship primaries, billed for Friday, September 28.”
Agbaje also believes the PDP primary will be fair and free for any member who so wish to content under the party platform.
Agbaje expressed confidence in winning the election if he emerges the PDP candidate.
“Our primaries have always been open, fair and free for all,”
“This is what we are known for, and that is the way I expect it to be.”
Agbaje , who lost his bid to become PDP’s chairman to Secondus also believes he has what it takes to become the next Governor of the state.
“It is the people of Lagos State that will decide. The issues in the party will not impart negatively on votes,”
“Most Nigerians now vote for individuals rather than party.”
In 2015, Agbaje lost to current Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode of the All Progressive Congress (APC)
