The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Wednesday debunked a rumour that its candidate for the 2019 gubernatorial election in Lagos State Jimi Agbaje has dumped the party.
“This is to disclaim the rumour going around, that our governorship candidate, Mr Olujimi Agbaje, has left the PDP,” the State Secretary of the party, Prince Muiz Dosumu said in a statement on Wednesday.
“This is an absolute fallacy and could only have happened in the imagination of the rumour peddler,” he added.
Agbaje was rumoured to have dumped the opposition party because of an unresolved issue following his loss during the gubernatorial election in the state.
He was defeated by the All Progressives Congress candidate Babajide Sanwo-Olu. Sanwo-Olu polled 739,445 votes to defeat Jimi Agbaje of the PDP, who polled 206,141 votes.
Agbaje exit was initially erroneously confirmed by PDP chieftain Femi Fani-Kayode
