Founder of JayKay Pharmaceuticals and two-time governorship candidate in Lagos State, Jimi Agbaje, has said he will take another shot at the number one position in the state.
Agbaje said he changed his mind at the 11th hour and bought the nomination form of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The pharmacist said he is confident he would emerge victorious at the poll.
“It is true that initially I did not want to re-contest, but I had so many people urging me to run,” Agbaje said.
“I bought and submitted my nomination form shortly before it closed. I will be part of the PDP Lagos governorship primaries, billed for Friday, Sept 28th. Our primaries have always been open, fair and free for all.
“This is what we are known for, and that is the way I expect it to be. It is the people of Lagos State that will decide. The issues in the party will not impart negatively on votes.
“Most Nigerians now vote for individuals rather than party.”
Agbaje, who ran under the platform of the Democratic Peoples Alliance lost to Babtunde Fashola in 2007. In 2015 when he ran under PDP, he lost to the incumbent governor, Akinwunmi Ambode.
