Unlike Buhari who ran four times before eventually winning, Peoples Democratic Party candidate, Jimi Agbaje has declared his
intention not to contest again for the position of governor in Lagos
after the losing twice.
Agbaje who lost to All Progressives Congress (APC) Party candidate,
Akinwunmi Ambode with a 152,206 vote margin spoke to ChannelsTV
correspondent this evening after his opponent was declared winner.
According to the PDP candidate, Lagosians have made their choice and there’s no reason whatsoever to resort to violence.
“I tried once before, this is the second one. I’m not running again,”
he said. “If I can’t be of service as governor, there are other ways of
serving the state. I will find other ways of serving.”
Agbaje, 58, called Ambode some minutes before 6pm on Sunday evening to concede defeat to the APC candidate.
