Lagos4Lagos Ousted Chairman, Others Return To APC



The sacked chairman of the Lagos4Lagos Movement, Sunday Ajayi, has led his supporters back to the ruling All Progressives Congress on Tuesday.

The movement left APC to the Peoples Democratic Party after a parallel congress held in 2021 accusing the party of not providing a level playing ground for its members.

However, crisis rocked the movement in April 2022 when the visionary, Olajide Adediran sacked Ajayi over allegation of N100 million gift from the national leader the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

Reacting to his sack, Ajayi and his supporters left the movement alleging lack of democratic standards by Adediran.

Among the defectors is the former Vice Chairman of Kosofe Local Government, Mr Segun Aka-Basorun.

The state APC chairman, Pastor Cornelius Ojelabi welcomed the defectors at the party Secretariat.

In a statement by Mr Lateef Ibirogba, South West Organising Secretary of the party, who also led the decampees to the party chairman.

“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,” Ojelabi said.

Ojelabi urged them to be upright and continue to contribute their quota to the development of the party.

According to him, together they all could take the party to greater heights.

Speaking on behalf of the returnees, 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.

He said his political family had decided to retrace their step.
