Former governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Jimi Agbaje, on Friday, November 18, 2022 dispelled insinuations of defection to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
EVENTNG has gathered that the veteran pharmacist turned politician described the rumours as “falsehoods”.
“Inspite of my several denials that I have not moved over to the APC, some self-styled public analysts continue to spread falsehoods.
“The other day it was Joseph Edgar. Today, it is Jimi Disu. I wonder their reasons for spreading such lies! I would have expected more from them when it comes to seeking & spreading the truth! It seems it’s clearly no longer about that… only sensationalism.
“I ask them to act responsibly given the platforms they are taking advantage of,” Agbaje wrote on his verified Facebook page.
Agbaje have been rumoured to have defected to the ruling party several times.
In July, claims of his defection to the APC permeated the media space.
Also, in October, a viral WhatsApp message circulated which claimed the pharmacist had “rejoined” the APC. At the time, the 65-year-old denied it.
