Former Lagos APC Member, Jandor Officially Joins PDP



A former member of the governing All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, Dr. Abdul Azeez Olajide Adediran, has formally defected to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Adediran is the Lead Visioner of a political group, Lagos4Lagos Movement.

The defection ceremony which was brief took place at the Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS), Lagos on Friday, and had in attendance all PDP Governors in the southern part of the country.

In his comment, the PDP National Chairman, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, urged party supporters to take the party campaign to the doorsteps of other supporters, saying that the party would not only wrestle Lagos State from APC, but would also come to the state for the inauguration of a new PDP President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in 2023.

Abia State Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazau described Adediran as a viable and strategic party member. He said his defection was a good omen to the PDP in Lagos State.

Adediran while speaking after being handed a PDP membership card indicted the APC leadership for opposing the entrenchment of internal democracy.

He boasted that PDP would spring a surprise in 2023 general elections, citing the case of the Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, whom he said was considered as an underdog, but succeeded in winning the 2019 governorship election and presently performing very well.
