Lagos4Lagos Chairman Defects Back To APC


Lagos4Lagos, Chairman Ajayi Withdraws, Defects Back To APC Following Disagreement With Founder Of Group.

The All Progressives Congress on Tuesday welcomed Sunday Ajayi, the Chairman of Lagos4Lagos Movement and Segun Aka-Basorun, former Vice Chairman of Kosofe Local Government, back to its fold.

Recall that the leaders of the group within the Lagos APC, which held parallel party congresses in 2021, formally defected to the Peoples Democratic Party in January.

However, Mr Ajayi on April 20, announced his withdrawal from the group with his followers, citing an alleged lack of democratic practices by the Lead Visioner of the group, Olajide Adediran.

Cornelius Ojelabi, APC chairman in Lagos, received the defectors at the party Secretariat on Tuesday.

This is contained in a statement by Lateef Ibirogba, South West Organising Secretary of the party, who also led the decampees to the party chairman.

Mr Ojelabi recounted the contributions of the former aggrieved APC leaders to the party.

“I welcome you back to our fold. Welcome to our great party and congratulations  for taking the right decision.

“As a progressive, we know it’s not likely for you to fit into the system of PDP,” Mr Ojelabi said.

Speaking on behalf of the returnees, Mr Ajayi, who noted that he and his followers were happy to return to the APC, promised to work with the party leadership to achieve greatness.
