Revealed: G.T Bank Boss, Segun Agbaje Major Financial Pillar Behind Lagos PDP Guber Candidate Jimi Agbaje's Political Campaign!
Here are the details.
In the Peoples Democratic Party, Jimi Agbaje has marked his territory as the party gubernatorial candidate of Lagos State. Through his wide network of deep-pocket friends and his affiliations with Guaranty Trust Bank, it came as no surprise that the pharmacist-turned politician was able to floor, Musiliu Obanikoro in the PDP Lagos gubernatorial primaries.His ambition to captain Lagos State has remained unwavering and his political ambition can be described as rather strategic. However, it has been gathered that GTBank Plc, under the leadership of Segun Agbaje, who is the Managing Director of the bank, has been playing a large part in Jimi’s political ambition, financing his course and opening doors only monetary gust can set ajar.
Segun Agbaje has always been actively involved in Jimi’s political footsteps, puppeteering his brothers decisions and indirectly contributing to political news through Jimi. At the onset of Jimi’s gubernatorial ambition, especially his decision, Segun was reported to have been of the people who advised Jimi dump his former party, the Democratic People Alliance, and join viable political platform to actualise his ambition, if he would consider deploying massive financial war-chest to the ambition. Segun has since been one of the financial pillars to Jimi.
While it has been highly speculative that Jimi Agbaje and Segun Agbaje are relatives, not many people know that Lagos PDP Governorship Candidate, Jimi and MD of GTBank, Segun Agbaje are blood brothers. The bond between blood brothers holds firmer than can be imagined. They are both sons of the late Chief Julius Kosebinu Agbaje, a popular Nigerian banker who was for many years the Chairman of GTBank. It comes as no surprise that Segun is a banking guru, having learnt the ropes of the business from his father. Both successful men who have made strides in their respective fields were conceived by Mrs. Margaret Olabisi Agbaje. Their close relationship has since been established even as children. Aside growing up together under the tutorship of the same parents, their late father ensured all his sons attended the same school, St Gregory College.
