Less than 40 days to the 2023 general election, the Lagos State Chairman of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Dabiraoluwa Adeyinka, and some other state executive members have resigned from the party and joined the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
NEWSBREAK reports that Adeyinka, leading about 15 other party executives to the main opposition party on Monday, said that the decision was based on personalities with the tickets of the PDP in the state.
According to her, the group consulted widely before opting for the PDP.
Receiving the decampees at the PDP candidate’s Liberty House in Ikeja, Philips Aivoji, the Lagos State PDP Chairman, expressed his delight.
“I appreciate your courage. You have come to the right party. I thank you for identifying with our candidate. What I can assure you is that there is no level you cannot aspire to in PDP.
“We have broken the jinx of godfatherism. Let others rise up and join us and rally round PDP together to rescue Lagos,” Aivoji said.
Also speaking, the Lagos PDP Governorship Candidate, Abdul-Azeez Adediran (Jandor), noted that there was an alignment between his aspirations and those of the defectors.
He urged them to hit the ground running ‘to rescue Lagos State’.
