As delegates to the Peoples Democratic Party National convention converge in Port Harcourt tomorrow to elect her National Executive members, confirmed sources have informed Secret Reporters that, the candidate for the position of National Chairman of PDP, Jimi Agbaje, is to meet his waterloo tomorrow, as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC) is set to arrest him in Port Harcourt.
Findings revealed that, this may not be unconnected to the $12million allegedly collected by Jimi from the erstwhile National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki as part of the campaign fund from the former president Jonathan.
Agbaje was the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2015 Lagos state gubernatorial elections. According to sources within the PDP, he has been endorsed for the chairmanship of the party by PDP Governors, but the EFCC is plotting his arrest at the venue of the PDP national convention in Port Harcourt on Wednesday.
Sources who spoke with Secret Reporters confirmed authoritatively that Agbaje will be picked on Wednesday.
Agbaje, a pharmacist and former Treasurer of the Yoruba sociocultural group, Afenifere was a former member of the Alliance for Democracy (AD), where he later defected to the Democratic Peoples Alliance (DPA) and contested the 2007 governorship election in Lagos. In 2014 he joined the Peoples Democratic Party on whose ticket he contested the 2015 guber elections. He lost to incumbent Governor Akinwumi Ambode of the All Progressive Congress.
