The battle to become the next Lagos governor in 2019 is primed to be a showdown between Jimi Agbaje of PDP and Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Last year, Jimi Agbaje won the PDP’s primary election with 1,100 votes to beat his only opponent, Deji Doherty (742 votes), according to the result announced on October 5, 2018.
It should be recalled that Agbaje lost the 2015 governorship election to the outgoing governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, by over 150,000 votes before also losing the national chairmanship of the PDP to Uche Secondus in 2017.
