Lagos 2019: Jimi Agbaje emerges PDP’s governorship candidate
Jimi Agbaje has been declared winner of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship primary election in Lagos state.
With 1,100 votes, Agbaje defeated Deji Doherty who polled 742 votes. The primary election lasted for two days and was supervised by a panel chaired by Victor Kassim Oyofo.
Jimmy Agbaje was the party’s candidate in the 2015 election but he lost to Akinwunmi Ambode, incumbent governor of the state.
In the forthcoming 2019 election, Agbaje will be in the race with a different candidate, Jide Sanwo-Olu who recently emerged as the candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
