7 Reasons Why Jimi Agbaje May Be Everyone’s Choice

As the build-up to the election continues, the momentum is swinging more and more to the underdog, Jimi Agbaje. It is pretty easy to see why as the down-to-earth politician is a rare breed.

7 Reasons Why Everybody Loves Jimi Agbaje

Below are seven reasons why everyone loves Jimi Agbaje and why the JK is OK movement is garnering a lot of followers by the second.

 

1. He is Smart:
Jimi Agbaje is unarguably one of the smartest politicians around. This is even more evident when you hear him speak. He is articulate and one of the best public speakers in the country.

2. Clean Hands:
Unlike most politicians, Jimi Agbaje has never been involved in any graft or scandal which makes him a role model of some sorts to aspiring politicians, considering that politics is usually considered an exercise to get one’s hands dirty. Jimi Agbaje is a far cry from the regular Nigerian politician and his track record in the private sector speaks for him.

3. Jimi Agbaje has a history of fighting for a better government:
JK’s political genesis can be traced to the aftermath of the 1993 presidential election. According to him, he saw the annulment of the result as an insult on the Nigerian people and got into politics to change the status qup. Over the years, Agbaje has been involved in a number of resistance movements seeking for a better society. This informed his early rapport with notable figures like Pat Utomi, Dr Ayo Ighodaro, Asue Ighodalo, Billy Lawson, Oby Ezekwesili, Tola Mobolurin, among others. It is widely belived that the equitable society Jimi has always sought after will be easily realized if given the mandate.

4. He has a rich professional resume:
Asides currently sitting on the board of a number of renowned companies, Jimi Agbaje boasts an illustrious resume. From 1987 to 1990, Jimi Agbaje served as National Secretary of Nigerian Association, General Practice. From 1990 to 1993, Mr. Agbaje held various professional appointments which include National Chairman of Nigerian Association of General Practice Pharmacists. From 1994 to 1997, he served as Chairman of Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria (Lagos State). He also was Chairman of 1994 National Conference Planning Committee of the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria. In the year 2000, Jimi Agbaje served as the National Treasurer of Afenifere, more proof that public funds are indeed safe with him.

5. Jimi’s manifesto is compelling:
Have you seen and read his manifesto? You should visit his website www.jimiagbaje.com and see for yourself. His ideas are plain for all to see and are driven towards the development of Lagos. Anybody who sees that manifesto and doesn’t throw his weight behind Agbaje’s bid must not love Lagos and Nigeria at large.

6. He is an enviable father and husband:
Jimi Agbaje met his wife Abiola Agbaje (Bankole) at the then University of Ife (now University of Ibadan), and has stuck with her until now, with their three children. Unlike most randy politicians, Jimi is known as a loyal husband which has seen him carve a niche as a loving family man and many are testament to his fatherly responsibilities.

7. Jimi is the Change Lagos needs:
For the past 16 years, Lagos has been ruled by a single group of people/persons although their name has changed over time, they are still the same set of people. Considering the fact that there has been a change at the Federal level, Jimi is looked at by many is the change that can be seen in Lagos, given the wanton mismanagement of the state’s vast resources, human and otherwise.
