Jimi Agbaje, former governorship candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos, has denied reports that he has joined the All Progressives Congress (APC).

 

A report titled ‘Awolokan 2023’ began to circulate on social media platforms in the early hours of Wednesday, claiming that Agbaje has joined APC and endorsed Bola Tinubu, APC presidential candidate.

 

“I’m fully back in APC to join our South-West leaders as well as progressive family and friends in Lagos State. The Awalokan 2023 is a project that both young and old in all the nooks and crannies of the Southwest should embrace. On this note, I sincerely join APC from the major opposition party to add my strength,” the statement, which was claimed to have been credited to Agbaje, reads.

 

But in what appeared to be a reaction to the claim on his social media handles, Agbaje, who wrote in Yoruba, said it’s the turn of Nigerians.

 

He also said he remains a member of the PDP.

 

“Eyin ko lokan o. Nigerians lokan, Jimi Agbaje – PDP,” he wrote on Twitter.

The phrase, ’emi lo kan’ (it’s my turn), became popular after Tinubu’s speech in Ogun during his campaign prior to the APC presidential primary.

 

Speaking at the time, Tinubu had said he played a significant role to ensure victory for President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2015 elections, adding that it is his turn to be president.
