Renowned pharmacist and one of the influential personalities in Nigerian politics, Jimi Agbaje sits with Chude as he discusses what it’s like to lose an election, how he responds to the attention and praises showered on him by the general public as well as whether or not he plans to run in the 2023 elections.
“It’s not about just power for the sake of it, because then I could have been Deputy Governor. A lot of people abused me that time that I’m a foolish man, ‘they offered you deputy you didn’t take’. I said but the price meant I had to disown my own origin.
So it’s not about that, this idea of ‘okay we have seen the light, come and be governor’. At what cost?
On my own terms or on whose terms?”
