Jimi Agbaje, governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has revealed he decided to contest again because he could not find a “suitable” younger candidate for the position.
Speaking on Channels Television, Agbaje said after losing the governorship election in 2015, he had made up his mind not to contest the seat but could not get a suitable candidate for the party.
“Even though I didn’t want to run, I felt that we could get a candidate.
“After my running in 2015, I felt if I didn’t win, we could get a younger person to run but in all honesty, I’ve spent the last three years trying to encourage younger indigenous Lagosians to see who would be able to run, who we would be able to back up. But unfortunately, we didn’t get any,” he said.
Agbaje also expressed confidence that he would be victorious at the poll next year.
