2015: Lagos PDP dissociates self from suit against Jonathan

Goodluck Jonathan

The Lagos State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Sunday disowned one of its members, Adejumo Agbaje, who filed a suit challenging the eligibility of President Goodluck Jonathan for the 2015 polls.

In a statement signed by its Publicity Secretary, Taofik Gani, the PDP said Mr. Agbaje was not a key member or leader of the party in the state.

Mr. Agbaje, along with some other PDP members had filed a suit no. FHC/ABJ/CS/662/2014 challenging the eligibility of Mr. Jonathan to seek re-election in 2015.

“Agbaje can thus be representing his own interest. He is definitely on a frolic of his own probably to gain media attention or for pecuniary interest,” the statement said.

It warned Mr. Agbaje to desist from embarrassing the party forthwith.

The party said while it appreciated the right of any Nigerian to aspire to any office in the land, it restated the party’s unequivocal decision on President Jonathan’s candidature and right to seek re-election under the 1999 Constitution.

“Jonathan has achieved well enough to guarantee the success of the PDP at the coming presidential election.

“We reiterate our conviction in the ability of Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan to win the presidential election for PDP.

“We condemn any subterranean move to blackmail our chapter (Lagos PDP) against Mr President. Our support for Mr President is untainted and irrevocable,” the party said.

    The suit is a two edged suit to seek relevance by the APC – the new Ekiti way and to distabilise Jimi Agbaje’s name in the gubernatorial polls, so that people would believe that the guy is either close or has anything to do with Jimi Agbaje.

    The APC is an embarassment to Nigeria and must be treated like lepers

      Who embarrasses Nigeria more Jonathan or APC? your jonathan that went to a summit in Paris to say 20,000 have been killed by boko haram also said at the UN General Assembly that 13,000 have been killed by boko haram. Apparently in his imagination, 7,000 resurrected. Jonathan has done worse than boko haram to split this country along religious and ethnic lines. Think please.

        the records are there for u to check. over 20, 000 have been killed by the fulanis in the fighting machine of boko haram. Earlier the record was put at 13.000. it was the UN and the US that raised it to 20,000

        His oil revenue has not shamed Nigeria for one day. But his person has .

          Jonathan does not own any oil… stop deluding yourself. Jonathan is an embarrasment…even Otuoke can produce a better person. Jonathan is the worst person to come from Niger Delta.
