The Governorship Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Lagos State, Jimi Agbaje, has on Wednesday night, denied dumping his party, after the just concluded March 9, elections.
Recall, that Agbaje had emerged distant second, in the Governorship election, trailing the Candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Babajide Sanwoolu, who was declared the winner and Governor-elect, by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
Speculations were rife on Wednesday, that Agbaje may have dumped the PDP, and was yet to make known his next political move.
However, in a reaction, Agbaje’s Spokesperson, Modupe Ogunbayo, in a statement, said that his principal is still a card-carrying member of the PDP, and has not resigned his membership.
He maintained that Agbaje is committed to the PDP, which he believes is the best party that will address the yearnings of Nigerians.
The statement reads: “In the past 24-hours, Mr. Olujimi Kolawole Agbaje, the Gubernatorial Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, in the recently-concluded 2019 election in Lagos State, has received uncountable calls and messages from numerous friends, teeming political associates within PDP, and countless members of his supporters, that he has resigned from the PDP.
“Mr. Olujimi Kolawole Agbaje is still a card-carrying member of the PDP. He remains committed to the broad-based party, which he remains absolutely certain, has the best antidote to the yearnings and aspirations of the Nigerian peoples.
“It is another chunk from the ongoing propaganda and disinformation machinery of his foes. Mr. Olujimi Kolawole Agbaje urges all to treat the rumour with the disdain it wisely deserves.”
