Jimi Agbaje

Jimi Agbaje, a former gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State in 2017 election, says he had not contemplated quitting the party because most parties lack ideology.

Agbaje made the disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Lagos while reflecting on his political aspiration.

The one-time contestant for the National Chairman of PDP alluded that there were little differences in the political parties in Nigeria save the name given to them.

“There is no need to cross carpet to other political party, what do I want there? In our country, there is little difference in the political parties that we have.

“You can only cross carpet if you are looking for power, but when you gain the power you are looking for, you will discover that it is not in your own terms.

“The party you defected to will dictate to you what they want, then you are unable to deliver at your own terms.

“Why changing party when you can still fulfil your aspiration where you are and make impact? The real change has thought us to be wiser,’’ he said.

Agbaje said that he saw himself as an accomplished politician who can still fulfil the process of good governance which was more satisfactory to him.
