LAGOS 2019: Agbaje emerges PDP guber candidateSunday Akinseye October 6, 2018 0 COMMENTS
After over 24 hours of voting by about 3, 000 accredited delegates from the 20 local government areas of Lagos State, Jimi Agbaje yesterday re-enacted the 2014 feat by emerging as the PDP governorship candidate for the 2019 election.
Agbaje polled 1,100 votes to defeat his opponent, Deji Doherty, who had 742 votes.
The panel chairman declared Agbaje winner, saying the outcome was reflective of the will of the people.
Agbaje thanked his opponent and solicited his support to take over governance of the state in 2019, saying, “We are looking at the larger picture. The conduct of the primary is a lesson for other parties. This is a mandate to build on the success of 2015 election.”
He said it was high time the state was freed from the shackles of the ruling hegemony in the state.
