Again, Lagos4Lagos shifts formal declaration for PDP to January 21 to ‘win more souls’

Published

The Lagos4Lagos Movement, formed under the Lagos chapter of the ruling All Progressives Progress (APC), has again shifted its official declaration of defection to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The movement announced on Monday that the formal defection will now hold January 21, as it aims “to win more souls” for the movement

Abdul-Azeez Adediran, the leader of the movement that recently announced defection to the PDP, disclosed this in a statement by the group’s Press Secretary, Kazeem Bakare.

Mr Adediran said the change of date during an emergency Central Working Committee (CWC) and Local Organising Committee (LOC) meeting of the movement was due to “growing demand by major stakeholders in the PDP, especially the governor’s” to be part of the declaration.

According to Mr Adediran, “The new date became imperative following an emergency meeting with the leader of the party in Southwest, Seyi Makinde, who is equally the Governor of Oyo State on Sunday, January 10.

“Governor Makinde expressed the interest of his colleague Governors, federal lawmakers, and other major stakeholders who have signified readiness to be part of the grand event,” he said.

According to him, the new date is an opportunity to “win more souls” into the Lagos4Lagos train, noting that the request for a change of date by the governors and other stakeholders was a demonstration of the rising profile of the movement and its symbol.

The movement had initially fixed December 18, 2021, for the official declaration for the main opposition party before it was shifted to January 11, then the new date.

In his address, during the defection process in Lagos, Mr Adediran, popularly known as Jandor, had said the development meant an end to godfatherism in Nigeria’s commercial hub.
