Jimi Agbaje: An Ineffective Political Strategy of Lagos PDP Guber Race (Opinion)

At the moment there are wild speculations, surrounding Pharmacist turned politician, Jimi Agbaje.

It is no longer news that he won Lagos PDP Governorship Ticket and will go head to head against Sanwo-Olu.

The political stratosphere is abuzz at Agbaje’s brand of politics. As a politician with such grand plans to secure the number one seat in Lagos, Agbaje is somewhat remiss.

He is not a noticeable fixture in Lagos politics and comes out of his self-inflicted political hiding, only during elections.

The two times Lagos Guber aspirant, Jimi Agbaje has clinched the PDP Governorship ticket for the second time. He contested against Adedeji Doherty and won the ticket.

Previously, the politician and businessman, contested against Raji Fashola in 2007 on the Platform of Democratic People Alliance (DPA) and lost.

He also contested against Akinwunmi Ambode in 2015, on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and lost.

After failing to become the governor of Lagos state in 2015, Jimi Agbaje publicly announced he would not be contesting for the number one sit in Lagos again.

However, in a sudden about-face, he has secured the Lagos PDP Guber ticket to face Babajide Sanwo-Olu of APC.

Is three times the charm for Jimi Agbaje?
