Lagos Commissioner Decamps To PDP



Mr. Oluwo Olawale, the Lagos state  commissioner for energy and mineral resources has defected to the people Democratic Party PDP.

According to  Mr. Oluwale, he decamps to the PDP base on the conduct of the All Progressive Congress primary election which leads to the defect of the Lagos state governor Akinwunmi Ambode.

Oluwo said he was not only leaving the party but also resigning as the commissioner for energy and mineral resources.

He claimed to have submitted a similar letter to Ambode

The letter to the chairman of the party, dated December 3, read in part, “My decision to resign is not unconnected with the events of the last few weeks which have created a heavy moral burden for me. I have found it rather difficult to come to terms or rationalise the party’s conduct of the October 2018 primary election which were largely characterised by massive voters’ disenfranchisement, intimidation, violence, undue influence and non-compliance with all known principles of democracy.

“In the particular case of the governorship primary, which was conducted using the ‘open ballot’ option in violation of the guidelines of the APC that specified that the ‘open secret ballot’ option, it is clear to me that the vote principles of competence, merit, justice and fairness have been sacrificed by the APC on the altar of political expediency,”

It was learnt that Wasiu has joined the Peoples Democratic Party candidate, Jimi Agbaje.
