Hon. Bamidele Aderonmu, a former Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, House of Representatives aspirant in Surulere Counstituency 02, and his supporters have formally joined the Labour Party.
Speaking on the issue, one of the decampees, Mr. Celestine Ndukwe said they took the decision to actualize Aderonmu’s House of Reps ambition.
According to him, there is no doubt that the ACN was most of unfair to Aderonmu in his quest to run on their platform.
Specifically, he wondered why somebody who won the Reps primaries overwhelmingly would be denied the ticket.
Ndukwe however said he was happy that the entire Surulere II constituency was resilient in their determination to ensure that Aderonmu wins on the LP platform. He stressed that given his experience and background, there was no doubting the fact that he was the best man for the job.
