The 2015 Lagos State governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Jimi Agbaje has said he will run again for the position in 2019.

Agbaje reportedly made the confirmation via a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria  in Lagos.

“It is true that initially I did not want to re-contest, but I had so many people urging me to run.

“I bought and submitted my nomination form shortly before it closed. I will be part of the PDP Lagos governorship primaries, billed for Friday, September 28th, “ he said.

“Our primaries have always been open, fair and free for all. This is what we are known for, and that is the way I expect it to be. It is the people of Lagos State that will decide. The issues in the party will not impart negatively on votes. Most Nigerians now vote for individuals rather than party,” he added.
