LAGOS – Mr Jimi Agbaje, the 2007 Democratic People’s Alliance (DPA) governorship candidate in Lagos State, has formally joined the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), a party official said on Monday.
Mr Gani Taofik, the State Publicity Secretary of PDP told newsmen in Lagos:“ Agbaje is now a card-carrying member of the PDP.
“Agbaje has showed the State Working Committee (SWC) of the party his membership card obtained from Ward B in Apapa Local Government Area.
“Agbaje told us that he decided to join PDP as the most viable platform for the desired change in Lagos State.’’ [eap_ad_2] Taofik said Agbaje, who came to the party secretariat in Ikeja on a “courtesy visit’’, presented the membership card to the party leadership.
The publicity secretary noted that Agbaje’s joining the party at this time would help to further broaden the party’s membership in the state.
According to him, the SWC assured Agbaje and his supporters of a level-playing field in seeking positions in the party.
Taofık, however, said there no automatic tickets for candidates seeking the various elective posts on the platform of the PDP in 2015.
“However, if this is Agbaje’s God’s appointed time nothing can stop him,’’ he said. (NAN)[eap_ad_3]
