A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and former chairman of the party in Lagos State, Segun Adewale, has announced that he is dumping his party to join the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Adewale revealed this at a news conference on Saturday in Lagos.

The PDP in Alimosho Local Government Area of the state suspended Adewale indefinitely last week for allegedly causing disaffection in PDP and tarnishing the party’s image.

The ex-PDP chairman, before his suspension, had earlier attributed the failure of the party to win elections in the state since 1999 to corruption and disunity among party members.

Speaking at the news conference, Adewale said: “I am not contesting election in 2027 but going to the ruling party to support the president. My next move is to go to Abuja and prostrate to Tinubu,” he said.

Reacting to his suspension, Adewale said his reported suspension by PDP in Alimosho LGA was orchestrated by those fighting him for exposing how they mismanaged campaign funds during the 2023 election.

He added that his suspension had no effect, as his ward had absolute confidence in him and had distanced itself from the reported suspension.
