A former governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Lagos State, Jimi Agbaje, has denied dumping the party for the ruling All Progressives Congress.
On Wednesday, the Tinubu Support Group claimed that the pharmacist defected to the APC to support IRS presidential aspirant Bila Tinubu.
However, in a response hours after, Agbaje debunked the report, stating that the report was false.
In a chat with The PUNCH on Wednesday, Agbaje said, “Definitely not. No truth to the story.”
However, before his disclaimer, a post had surfaced online claiming that Agbaje was said to have called on youths to embrace APC in the country.
The post was accompanied by a picture with text reading, “Lagos 2023 elections: Jimi Agbaje joins APC …in support of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu”.
Titled ‘Awalokan 2023’ a text shared along with the picture read, “I’m fully back in APC to join our South-West leaders as well as progressive Family and friends in Lagos State.
“The Awalokan 2023 is a project that both young and old in all the nooks and crannies of the Southwest should be embraced.
“On this note, I sincerely join APC from the major opposition party to add my strength.
“I believe It’s time to support and also appreciate Senator Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as next President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in the forthcoming Presidential election on the platform of the All Progressives Congress.”
