Jimi Agbaje ‘calls’ Fani-Kayode over rumoured defection from PDP


A former Aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has stated that the PDP gubernatorial candidate in the recently-concluded election in Lagos, Jimi Agbaje, who was reported to have resigned from the Peoples Democratic Party, is still with the main opposition party.

Agbaje was reported in a section of the media as explaining that it was necessary for him to quit PDP after series of allegations that arose after the party lost the March 9, 2019 governorship election in Lagos State to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

“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,” the PDP standard bearer was quoted as saying.

But putting a lie to such report, Fani-Kayode tweeted on Wednesday: “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.”
