The Chairman of Lagos PDP, Capt. Tunji Shelle (retd.), said this during a press conference in Lagos on Thursday shortly after the State Executive Committee passed a vote of confidence in him. Shelle, who insisted that the PDP candidate, Mr. Jimi Agbaje, won the election, added that the party was already preparing for the local government election in the state. He said, “In the last elections, we gave the All Progressives Congress a fight for their money. We fought a good battle. We won some while we lost some. But at the end of the day, we are fully convinced that we won the governorship election. “That was why we went to the tribunal, the Appeal Court and we are now heading for the Supreme Court. We are more than convinced that we won the governorship election.” Shelle, who had been suspended by the Kamaldeen Olorunoje faction of the party but was later reinstated by the national leadership of the PDP, urged all aggrieving parties to cooperate with him for the sake of peace and prosperity. Shelle was hailed by several local government and ward chairmen of the PDP on his return to the party secretariat and he urged all aggrieved parties to obey the PDP constitution. He said, “I want us to remember that we have local government elections coming up anytime from now. We have to participate fully. We have cases at the tribunal and we are hopeful that we will win most of the cases.”]]>
