Eight parties endorse Jimi Agbaje for Lagos Governorship election

Report gathered that ahead of the Saturday’s governorship election, eight political parties have endorsed the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Lagos, Mr Jimi Agbaje.

The parties include the United Party of Nigeria (UPN), Alliance for Democracy(AD), All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Accord, and African Democratic Congress (ADC).

Others are the Progressive Peoples Alliance (PPA), Democratic Peoples Party(DPP), National Conscience Party and Citizens Popular Party(CPP).

Leaders of the party at a press conference in Lagos Thursday, said they would work rigorously for Agbaje’s emergence as governor of the state in Saturday’s election.
Ikuomola said, “all the eight political parties hereby pledge allegiance, their total support and unanimously endorse Jimi Kolawole Agbaje, the PDP flag bearer in the April 11 governorship election in Lagos state.”

Reacting to the alleged threat by the Oba of Lagos to non-indigenes to vote All Progressives Congress (APC) or drown in the Lagoon, the parties said traditional rulers should desist from endorsing candidates and focus on their traditional role of protecting the culture of their people.
