Agbaje Spits FIRE, Ready To Drag PDP To Court If They Continue Doing This …….

The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, Dr. Adegbola Dominic, has accused its governorship candidate in the just-concluded general elections, Jimi Agbaje, of allegedly hijacking funds meant for the prosecution of the elections in the state.

The state chairman of the party, also accused Agbaje of flagrant disregard for party rules and its leadership, including the apex leader of the party, Chief Olabode George.

 The party said the governorship candidate’s action contributed significantly to its disastrous performance in the state.

However, in his reaction, Jimi Agbaje, who admitted that he received the funds, said he had no reason to render any account of how the funds were disbursed to the party because the party did not give him the money, in the first place.

He said he had rendered the account to the person who gave out the money and that the person was satisfied with how the funds were disbursed.

“The state chairman was not the person who gave me the money. It wasn’t the party who gave me the money.

“So, why should I render an account to Dominic or any other person? I have rendered an account to the person who gave me the money, and that is what matters. Everybody who collected the money signed for it and the record has been given to the owner of the money.

“I stated it in my press release last week that an account has been rendered fully to the person who gave me the money, and he is satisfied,” Agbaje said.

Agbaje, who restated his commitment to the PDP, also threatened to take legal actions against the party leaders if they continued to tarnish his image.

“If they continue maligning me, I may just take it up legally with them because I will not allow them to continue tarnishing my name,” he said.

Recall that the news of Jimi Agbaje decamping from the PDP was reported in some sections of the media, but the guber candidate has come out to openly deny the allegation.
