Jimi Agbaje Emerges Lagos PDP Gov Candidate
Jimi Agbaje is back in the governorship race in Lagos State again after initially abandoning his ambition.
Jimi Agbaje has emerged the governorship candidate of Peoples Democratic Party in Lagos State.
He polled 1,100 votes to defeat his rival Adedeji Doherty who polled 742 votes in the party’s primary election, reports Channels Television.
Agbaje was the PDP candidate in the 2015 governorship election but lost to incumbent governor Akinwunmi Ambode.
The primary election which lasted for two days was supervised by a panel chaired by Victor Kassim Oyofo.
In the 2019 election, Agbaje will be in the race with Jide Sanwo-Olu who recently emerged as the candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
