Ex-Minority Leader Declares PDP Dead In Lagos


Former Minority Leader, Lagos State House of Assembly, Avoseh Suru has declared that his  former party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is dead in the state, stressing that “the  party can not win any election in the state.”

The lawmaker, who until last week was a member of the PDP and the House Minority Leader made  the assertion yesterday in Lagos during his maiden visit to the secretariat of his new  party, Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN.

Avoseh, who represent Badagry 11 Constituency in the House told his hosts “my resolve to  defect to the ACN is borne out of my love with the robust people-oriented programmes of the  party.”

As a progressive, Avoseh said “this is where I belong and that is why I did not hesitate to  move in when I was convinced that ACN is a party for the people who have vision as well as  people who have the love of the people at heart.”

He then pledged his loyalty and commitment to the ideals of the party, assuring that “from  now on, electoral victory for the party in the state will be with utmost ease.”

While welcoming him, the Lagos Chapter Chairman of the ACN, Chief Henry Oladele Ajomale  congratulated Avoseh on his wise decision to “team up with a party with vision,” adding that  he knew all along that Avoseh as a progressive was in a wrong camp.

According to him, no progressive-minded politician would feel comfortable being in the camp  of the ‘Poverty Development Party,’ stating that “Avoseh’s chicken had finally come to the  right home to roost.”

Ajomale therefore assured Avoseh of his party’s hospitality just as he challenged him to  brace up for the task ahead, reminding that the task of building a nation as well as  building a state like Lagos is a collective venture.
