I’m Still In PDP, Says Aspirant


A People’s Democratic Party (PDP) stalwart in Lagos State, Tolagbe Animashaun, has  affirmed that his membership of the party is intact, saying he has no plan of  quitting the party for another party.

Reacting to a news report where it was erroneously stated that he was contesting the  Lagos Central Senatorial District seat on the platform of the Action Congress of  Nigeria (ACN), Animashaun allayed the fear being expressed by his teeming admirers,  assuring them that he still remains a bona fide member of the PDP and has no  intention to do anything in the contrary.

According to him, his desire to vie for a seat at the Senate was borne out of the  urge to empower the youths of the district and give them a voice in their quest to  secure a promising future.

He said he hopes to achieve that by exploring and exploiting the revenue potential  of his constituency by seeking legislation allowing for derivation from revenue  generated by federal institutions located within the area he seeks to represent at  the Senate.
