The Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Jimi Agbaje, who was defeated in the March 9 Lagos State governorship elections to Babajide Sanwo-Olu has denied claims hovering the airwaves and social media that he has retired from PDP.
The Governorship Candidate through his Director of Media and Publicity Mr. Felix Oboagwina said Agbaje is very much in PDP and news of him either dumping or being kicked out of the party were generated by mischief makers who want to damage His reputation.
“I have never discussed with anyone any plan to dump PDP, neither has such a prospect crossed my mind. There is no reason for it. It is uncalled for,” said the Governorship aspirant.
“For a party that has twice accorded me the honor of running on its platform, I should be regarded as uncharitable to say I am abandoning PDP now, The era of taking a share of what is not ours must stop in our party."
“The bitterness is from those who find it difficult to believe that money can be channeled without a ‘cut’ being taken. Leaders must lead by example,”
“My campaigns have been very clear on where the blame of bad governance in Lagos State should lie.
“It baffles me how the same people I hold responsible for the bondage we find ourselves in Lagos will be funding me to sabotage my party, PDP.
“I have never collected a single kobo from the ruling party in Lagos State directly or indirectly nor from its leadership or representatives”, he said.
