PDP Debunks Rumour Of Jimi Agbaje’s Defection From The Party

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has debunked rumours that its candidate in the last gubanatorial election in Lagos, Jimi Agbaje, has dumped the party.

There had been rumours on social media that the popular politician had left the party due to irreconcilable differences with party.

A statement by the Lagos State Secretary of the party, Prince Muiz Dosumu said:

“This is to disclaim the rumour going around, that our governorship candidate, Mr Olujimi Agbaje, has left the PDP,”

“This is an absolute fallacy and could only have happened in the imagination of the rumour peddler,” he added.

Earlier in the day, another PDP stalwart Femi Fani Kayode, had in a tweet added fuel to the rumour by name dropping Agbaje and saying another of his friend had left the PDP.

He was defeated by the All Progressives Congress candidate Babajide Sanwo-Olu. Sanwo-Olu polled 739,445 votes to defeat Jimi Agbaje of the PDP, who polled 206,141 votes.

In a follow up tweet, he later debunked the rumour after ‘talking’ to Agbaje on the phone.
