Mr Jimi Agbaje, the 2015 Lagos State governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, on Wednesday ended speculations about his re-run bid, saying he was back in the race.
Agbaje made the confirmation via a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos.
“It is true that initially I did not want to re-contest, but I had so many people urging me to run.
“I bought and submitted my nomination form shortly before it closed. I will be part of the PDP Lagos governorship primaries, billed for Friday, September 28th, “ he said.
Agbaje said that he was confident he would win the elections in Lagos state, if he picked the PDP guber ticket to run.
