Prominent PDP chieftain and government critic, Femi Fani-Kayode has stated that the Lagos State PDP candidate, Jimi Agbaje has not left the part, contrary to what has been said in the media.
According to FFK, Jimi Agbaje called him and said he has not left the party, insisting that the reports of his exit in the media are just fake news.
FFK also said Gbenga Daniels, former Ogun State governor who left PDP a few days ago has not joined the APC.
“I just received a call from my brother Jimi Agbaje.He assured me that he has NOT left @OfficialPDPNig and that the media reports were false. My brother Gbenga Daniel also reached me and assured me that though he has left PDP he has NOT joined @OfficialAPCNg. Thank you Jesus!” FFK said in a tweet on Wednesday afternoon.
There were earlier reports that Jimi Agbaje, who lost to Babajide Sanwo Olu of the APC in the gubernatorial election, had dumped the party over an unresolved disagreement between him and the leadership of the party in the state.
” I have tried to remain focused and ignored all the distractions coming from the leadership of the party. I am making the decision after due consultation with my supporters and loved ones for the sake of peace, ” he reportedly said.
Mr Agbaje, however, did not give details whether he will join another party.
The former Chairman of the people Democratic Party in Lagos State, Chief Tunji Shelle, has accused Jimi Agbaje of responsible for party poor performance in just concluded Governorship election in Lagos State.
